While this was a nice nod to the complete unknown ‘limo driver’ as he was – he is probably the longest shot to win in the category. It’s not a bad performance, but does not even come close or compare to the other nominees here.
I loved Bradley’s performance, just liked I loved the movie. He’s crazy & over the top, but yet makes it believable. I wouldn’t be upset if he won.
This wasn’t my favourite by a long shot as I felt the same about the movie. But I can’t deny that it wasn’t a worthy performance. Though crazy..but worthy! 🙂 My criticism is though the same one I have with the movie itself…choppy and you’re there one moment, gone the next, and boom! back again.
While this is definitely one of my top movies of the year, and I did like the performance, I think it’s still hard for us to see Jonah Hill as anything else but the funny, odd man out character. Yes, I know this is his 2nd nomination, and sorry, but stigma attached I don’t think he will win it.
And here Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls ~ WE HAVE OUR WINNER. What can you say about this performance that hasn’t been said?!! It’s just incredible. Is it the fact that Jared showed up to the set in character, stayed in it the during the entire filming, and even left in it.. no..it’s the fact that it was simply put, hands down, best supporting actor performance of the year. The end.
One thought on “COUNTDOWN TO THE OSCARS ~ “Best Supporting Actor””
Hmmm, Barkhad won the BAFTA in this category, and Leto wasn’t even nominated. (Not that the BAFTA’s are a bellwether of the Oscars, just interesting.)
