DAY 2 ~ COUNTDOWN TO THE OSCARS ~ “BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR”

Day 2 of the countdown ~ And remember, this is a category known for going to the most random of choices, except this year I think we have a ‘given’
Reminder: I’m giving who I think the winner will be and what would be my pick. And the nominees are:

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE

NOMINEES

CIARÁN HINDS – Belfast

Ciaran Hinds is just one of those actors – the kind that holds the screen with everything he does – and he’s always wonderful at it. No less so in Belfast here – he was wonderful.

TROY KOTSUR – CODA WINNER/MY PICK

What can you say about Troy Kotsur that hasn’t already been said? Nothing, that’s what. It’s not just a spectacular performance – it’s also that he’s just so darn nice and the pure joy and seeing him win awards makes your entire day.

JESSE PLEMONS – The Power of the Dog

When The Power of the Dog first came out and people were over looking the brilliance of Jesse’s performance, I was right there calling it out for what it was – wonderful. The understated brilliance of it is exactly what makes. Plemmons most definitely deserves to be here.

J.K. SIMMONS – Being the Ricardos

You’d be hard pressed to find a bad J.K. Simmons performance – and there is a reason for that. He gives it his all every time.

KODI SMIT-MCPHEE – The Power of the Dog

While I might not love The Power of the Dog as a whole, I do like it, and the reason I liked it a lot was because of this guy right here: Kodi Smit-McPhee. He was incredible, subtly making you think one thing of his character, all the while making you pay attention to what he was really doing. The ending scene sealed the deal for me – you can’t be mad if wins this one.
