Oscar Nominations – Supporting Actor

The List:

  • Kenneth Branagh – My Week with Marilyn
  • Jonah Hill – Moneyball
  • Nick Nolte – Warrior
  • Christopher Plummer – Beginners
  • Max von Sydow – Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Hooray for:

Nolte, who has been an underdog in this category.  Good to see he wasn’t forgotten.  Also, Jonah Hill!!

Where the hell is:

  • Ben Kingsley for Hugo (all the noms for that movie, and not one for its best performance?)
  • Alan Rickman for Harry Potter (come on, he was fantastic)
  • Andy Serkis for Rise of the Planet of the Apes (someday, Oscar voters will realize how good this guy is)
  • Viggo Mortensen for A Dangerous Method (no love for that movie, for some reason)

Instead of:

Branagh, who was terribly miscast as Laurence Olivier in Marilyn

My prediction:

This is Plummer’s to lose.  And about time, too!
