This year the Best Supporting Actor category is filled with familiar faces! Which is not a bad thing at all and considering all of the nominees are over 50 showing that men are getting good roles much older now as well. Anthony Hopkins 82, Al Pacino 79, Joe Pesci 77, Tom Hanks 63 and Brad Pitt 56! Now isn’t that very impressive!
Tom Hanks – A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Unfortunately I still haven’t managed to catch this film at the cinema, hopefully will see it in the next week.
Anthony Hopkins – The Two Popes (Review)
I guess acting doesn’t get much better than from Anthony Hopkins right? That is a sure thing he is outstanding and in this film he offers great support to the also nominated Jonathan Pryce, they bounce off each other so well and I have to admit I really did love the way he would talk about football. While the film is rather on the dull side this performance is very impressive.
Al Pacino – The Irishman (Review)
Isn’t it outstanding to see Al Pacino get another amazing role, it feels like it has been too long since he has had something of this calibre. Linking up with Scorsese and Robert De Niro it really is an amazing performance. He steals so many scenes and you start to believe in Jimmy Hoffa. Considering his career has been very strange in recent years it is a joy to see him back at his best, showing off that incredible charisma and really driving the film.
Joe Pesci – The Irishman (Review)
This should be the Oscar winning performance in my opinion. Seeing Joe Pesci come out of his acting retirement to take on this role and he is on another level. Everything about his performance is just perfect and I throughly enjoyed watching him show off amazing acting talent. Just wish he had been given the awards he truly deserves over this season. I would still love to see him pull this off, even though he probably won’t be attending as he has not been seen over the awards period.
Brad Pitt – Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (Review)
Don’t get me wrong Brad Pitt is an outstanding actor and he wasn’t even nominated for his best 2019 performance for Ad Astra. In OUTIH he does steal the scenes, but as I have already mentioned a lot of times I just don’t get the hype surrounding this film. Just felt everything about it was pretty average in all honesty. Seems as though he will be winning his second Oscar but his first acting one after four nominations. Maybe this is one of those it is his time now awards?
Who I want to win: Joe Pesci
Who I think will win: Brad Pitt
Outside Chance: Tom Hanks
