Golden Globe Nominees: Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5, missing Hopkins
Who’s missing? Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse), Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Sam Rockwell (Richard Jewell)

Last year, I didn’t predict Sam Rockwell showing up, and this year I did, which didn’t work out so well while his costar Kathy Bates ended up getting nominated instead. There actually wasn’t a surprise in this category, with Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes) getting the fifth slot I couldn’t decide on, just part of a very strong showing for his film. Both Al Pacino (The Irishman) and Joe Pesci (The Irishman) got in, as did Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), representing two of the nominations leaders. Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood) managed to secure a spot as the lone representative of his film. As I had read might be possible, this category features Oscar nominees from the 1990s, all of whom didn’t phone in these performances and still taking on challenging roles.

Who will win? I’m honestly not sure. I’ll go with Pitt for now.
