This year the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for the 2022 Oscars is a very good mix of performances.Read More »
I always look forward to the picture of the four acting winners, but for whatever reason this year (so far) I have only managed to find this one with Joaquin Phoenix (Joker), Renee Zellweger (Judy) and Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood). I mean where is Laura Dern?!?! As she has photos with Renee?
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!
The Best Supporting Actor category is often where we can expect an upset and I think it is pretty strong this year, only one of the nominations I find a little weak but I will explain that later. Ali seems to be the clear favourite for the award so I am hoping for an upset so my favourite can win! So it could be an interesting one or it could be the most predictable, not long now to find out though. I love Richard E. Grant and really would love to see him win, surely he would deliver the greatest and happiest speech of all time?
Let’s take a final look at the nominees for Best Actor in a Supporting Role . . .
