The Supporting Actor race is a little more clear but still wild in choosing a fifth spot. Javier Bardem is all but assured a win for his haunting portrayal in No Country for Old Men. Casey Affleck has two great performances this year and should not go unnoticed. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford is his signature role and should land him in top five.

If he misses this than this might be the end for him and people will be looking for a surprise come Oscar nomination morning. What about that fifth spot? Philip Seymour Hoffman for Charlie Wilson’s War, John Travolta for Hairspray, Ben Foster for 3:10 to Yuma, Paul Dano for There Will Be Blood, Max Von Sydow for The Diving Bell and Butterfly, Armin Mueller-Stahl for Eastern Promises, and Ethan Hawke for Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead are all battling for that last spot.
