SAG Nominees: Best Actor in a Supporting Role

My predictions: 4/5, missing Foxx
Who’s missing? Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes), Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Sam Rockwell (Richard Jewell)

Now here was a great surprise: Jamie Foxx (Just Mercy), a past SAG winner who earned three individual bids fifteen years ago and hasn’t been back on his own since. He is great in the film, and it’s nice to see him earn some buzz. Hopkins missing out isn’t a big deal since SAG didn’t honor his film anywhere else, and he may still manage an Oscar nomination. Though other awards bodies chose one over the other, both Al Pacino (The Irishman) and Joe Pesci (The Irishman) made it in, joining Tom Hanks (A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood), all on his own, and Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), supported by his ensemble and a costar. I’m fine with this list – it’s a good one.

Who will win? I think this actually goes to Pesci.
