October Best Supporting Actor Predictions

In conjunction with my humble Oscar predictions for best supporting actress, I now present my best supporting actor predictions.

Unlike the Academy Awards' supporting actress race, somehow, things seem clearer, and while buzz and sentiment can change, their isn't the same types of issues regarding internal competition that make the predictions challenging.

My Predicted 5

1. Stanley Tucci, The Lovely Bones
2. Christopher Waltz, Inglourious Basterds
3. Alfred Molina, An Education

The Next Tier

6. Anthony Mackie, The Hurt Locker
7. Robert Duvall, The Road
8. Kodi Smit-McPee, The Road
9. Peter Sargaard, An Education (lead?)
10. Alec Baldwin, It's Complicated

3rd Tier

11. Jeff Bridges, The Men Who Stare at Goats
13. Paul Schneider, Bright Star
14. Tobey Maguire, Brothers
15. Stanley Tucci, Julie & Julia

(Pictured above Stanley Tucci, The Lovely Bones; Anthony Mackie, The Hurt Locker; Jeff Bridges, The Men Who Stare at Goats)

I think Waltz will take this section. Although it is still too early to be sure. I wouldn't mind seeing the mandatory surprise nod go to Anthony Mackie for Hurt Locker, or even Tom Waits for Parnassus.
