2012 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actor

Christopher Plummer with Ewan Macgregor in "Beginners"
Indiewire will provide regular updates of our predictions for the 84th Academy Award winners through February 26th, when the winners are announced.

Some are suggesting the unexpected presence of Max Von Sydow here might give Christopher Plummer a run for his money,  but the battle of the Oscarless octogenarians is greatly exaggerated.  Plummer very likely has this in the bag, and deservedly so.

Best supporting actor predictions below. Watch clips of who Press Play's thinks should win in this category, and check out predictions in all categories here.

The Nominees
Kenneth Branagh, My Week With Marilyn
Jonah Hill, Moneyball
Nick Nolte, Warrior
Christopher Plummer, Beginners
Max Von Sydow, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

The Predicted Winner: Christopher Plummer, Beginners
The Potential Spoiler: Max Von Sydow, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Shoulda Been Here: Albert Brooks, Drive

    after winning all the awards, Oscar would commit the greatest sin if they snub again Christopher Plummer. His career is outstanding!

  • remlap48 | February 25, 2012 1:35 PMReply

    Another def. "Shoulda Been Here" is Joseph Gordon-Levitt for his role in 50/50. In fact he shoulda gotten a "best lead actor" nod for that performance.

  • Charles Scheiderich | February 23, 2012 8:47 AMReply

    Nick Nolte has taken a secondary character and elevated him to very closely a lead role. He absolutely deserves a best supporting Oscar for this role. "Warrior" didn't even get look by many who wrongly assumed it was just another "fighter", when it was so much more. So much for assumptions. Anyway, Plummer and VonSydow, like Nolte, certainly deserve nods for their respective performances. If you look at their overall careers, they all have turned in many fine performances which could have easily put the coveted statuette on their respective mantels, but in this case I think that Nick Nolte really put that little something extra on this role to make it the absolute Best Supporting Role of the year. Trying to pick the best clip to illustrate the perofrmance is a task in itself.

  • Nolte, Nolte, Nolte | February 23, 2012 8:03 AMReply

    I have watched everything Nolte has ever done from "Rich Man Poor Man" to current. I was a cop who worked DWI patrol for years and years, and the recovering alcoholic, turning back to the bottle that Nolte portrays chills me to the bone. The Hotel room scene and diner scene are two scenes that you carry with you always. Though Plummer and Von Sydow hit home runs, Nolte hits a grand slam....Nolte all the way....

  • Chris O | February 22, 2012 12:01 PMReply

    i wish jonah hill got more respect than this. he deserves the award over everybody else here, maybe its because he was also in the sitter i dont know but his performance in Moneyball was way better then anyone else here.

  • Antony | February 19, 2012 10:33 AMReply

    I think, along with supporting actress, this is the most predictable of the awards- Its a lifetime achievemnet win basically- good ole Cpt Von Trapp!!- Christopher get some gold polish now!

  • BOO | February 6, 2012 9:40 PMReply

    Max Von Sydow wasn't even that good. He just stood there and got sad sometimes.

    Why does everybody think he has it in the bag.. he was hardly even in it and and it was such an easy part to do.......What a saddd way for Christopher Plummer to be remembered for... a freakin Homo....Geeeezzzzz..He was so much better in Dragon Tattoo...This Country is turning so Gay!!! Come on people....

  • Susanebere | February 26, 2012 3:10 PM

    What is moral about judging others? Morals are subjective.

  • Frank | February 20, 2012 12:55 AM

    Bravo, Sterling. Nice to see that somebody still has the courage to stand up for moral values ... and to say what everyone else is thinking but too intimidated by the so-called "enlightened" media to say.

  • Jimmy | February 16, 2012 5:37 PM

    Hey Sterling...2 words for you ...GROW UP!

  • Martha | February 15, 2012 12:56 PM

    Good god, you're a homophobic moron.

  • bob hawk | February 8, 2012 1:57 AM

    Your inappropriate and obnoxiously homophobic remarks are anything but sterling, Sterling. Moving on . . . Even though Albert Brooks should be a nominee, there's not an actor in this category that does not deserve his nomination. The probability of Plummer (or dark horse Von Sydow) winning would partially be a career nod to their body of work -- but their nominated work was not "easy." Making it all seem easy and effortless is one of the highest attributes of fine acting.

  • Nik Grape | February 2, 2012 9:27 PMReply

    I think Von Sydow at least deserves Potential Spoiler recognition here. We all know Plummer is miles ahead of anyone but if there is even the slightest chance of an upset here it will come from Von Sydow, a veteran as much as Plummer is, same age, never won an Oscar, in a 9/11 movie..

  • Marvin | February 2, 2012 4:50 PMReply

    Most likely this one is in the bag for Christopher Plummer, but I would love to see Max von Sydow get it.

  • Lee | February 1, 2012 10:45 PMReply

    Usually, this is my second favorite category, but I'm not so interested this year. Plummer is going to win, and he most liekly deserves it. He's a veteran, and being awarded would be a celebration to his prosperous career and performance. I'm also proud of Jonah Hill, because no one expected the fat guy from "Superbad" to ever be nominated for an Oscar, especially for a drama. Proud of you Jonah! But Plummer is definitely going to win. He's got it in the bag.

  • Mike | January 31, 2012 7:28 AMReply

    On the topic of Alan Rickman, it is hard to judge his role in a specific Harry Potter movie without the entire weight of his character from the other movies coming into play. For me, his character brings the Harry Potter movies to the adult realm. Having said that, this role is no stretch for him. Many of the people who are upset about him not making the list scoff at DiCaprio making the list for a role that is similar to one that he has portrayed before. One aspect that should always be a huge part of an oscar nomination is how far the actor stretched and I would have to say that playing a character for an eighth time is hardly a stretch. No matter how well he does it.

  • ellie | January 28, 2012 4:53 PMReply

    The Oscar's only purpose is to generate more publicity for movies- that's why there isn't even a nomination for Alan Rickman- The Harry potter franchise hardly needs an Oscar bump to make a tidy profit! Shame really, because Jonah Hill was just terrible in Money ball, and Rickman would have filled that slot perfectly... But the oscars again, is all about the money.

  • Janis | January 28, 2012 12:06 PMReply

    Two words: GIOVANNI RIBISI. HOW on earth could he have been overlooked for Rum Diaries, clearly offered the best supporting actor performance of the past years.

  • Alan Rickman? | January 25, 2012 4:10 PMReply

    What is the deal with Alan Rickman. I mean he did a good job on the HP movies but seriously you think that role deserves an oscar. He should have gotten an oscar for the movie he did with Mos Def. But that's another debate if you even know the movie I am talking about. I say Nick Nolte or Christopher Plummer. Jonah Hill?????? Seriously!

  • EDDY | January 26, 2012 9:02 PM

    hm, are you talking about "Something the Lord Made" ? That's a TV movie... the only other I know is "The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy"...

  • Brian | January 25, 2012 4:01 PMReply

    My vote is for Nick Nolte. A lot of people didn't give warriors a shot at all. But I hope people take there time out to watch the movie. Nick Nolte was amazing in it. In my opinion. And the scene in the hotel with his son was so strong. Especially if you could relate. He knocked it out the park.

  • Chi | February 13, 2012 7:42 AM

    Complete Agreement with Brian....Nick Nolte has to get it

  • karit | January 23, 2012 10:29 PMReply

    I agree with anyone/everyone who feels like an Alan Rickman omission is travesty!! Not only should he be nominated, but he deserves to win by a long shot, in my opinion. I mean, Brad Pitt being nominated for Moneyball? What a joke! The performances aren't even on the same level.

  • karit | January 23, 2012 10:30 PM

    Is 'a' travesty. Oops.

    No nomination for Alan Rickman's master performance as Severus Snape??? Seriously, you bunch of Snobs. Just because you think that HP is a Kiddie-poo-poo movie, doesn't mean it is that! He captured the tormented soul of the Character so powerfully and movingly! If Alan doesn't end up getting recognized , my fear that Oscars aren't Fair, will be prove true.

  • Somebody | January 21, 2012 11:23 AMReply

    I'll tell you why Alan Rickman is not on the list: As great as his performance was, the ones in this list were even better. This was a very strong year in terms of supporting actors. I mean, the fact that the fat guy from Superbad made an award-worthy performance says everything.

    Amir Hammer should get nominated for J. Edgar. One of the best movies of 2011. He has some talent hidden in him for the future :)

  • Louise | January 21, 2012 7:06 AMReply

    I`m going to be really surprised if Leonardo DiCaprio, doesn`t get nominated for his preformance in J. Edgar. I liked it a lot and I think he did an excellence job portraying Hoover. Difficult role to play and I think he should at least get nominated for his preformance.

  • Dig Dug | January 21, 2012 6:03 AMReply

    Shut the FUCK up about Alan Rickman already. He wasn't even nominated for a BAFTA. A fucking BAFTA!!! If his own country isn't going to nominate him he sure as hell won't be for a mediocre Harry Potter movie. You fan boys and girls need to go back to your muggle fan sites and stay there. It's going to be Christopher Plummer's first Oscar even though I think Brooks or Stoll deserve it. Again...SHUT. UP. POTTER. IDIOTS.

  • Predictions2012 | January 21, 2012 10:52 AM

    Calm down dude, i'm not an HP fan and i didn't like the last HP so much but it wasn't a mediocre movie, and critics acclaimed it. And even if you don't agree with HP fans, you must recognize Rickman's performance was spectacular. That said, you're right when you say Plummer deserves to win and will win.

  • Louise | January 21, 2012 7:09 AM

    I think Rickman is an excellence actor who has done some good work, but to get an Oscar for his role in Harry Potter? No I think he shouldn`t get nominated - at least not this year and not for Harry Potter

  • Rick in MI | January 18, 2012 10:28 AMReply

    I thought Jonah Hill made "Moneyball". Someone from "Tinker Tailer" should also be considered... you pick! :) I didn't like "Hugo" much, but Ben Kingsley was great, as always. Albert Brooks was also very good in "Drive" as was Arnir Hammer in an otherwise bad "J. Edgar".

  • DropJaw | January 18, 2012 9:00 PM

    Jonah Hill was the mack. He went deep, the part went deep, the result was unforgettable. In a very fine movie, with other wonderful performances, he was the core.

  • Hera | January 18, 2012 10:27 AMReply

    Why Alan Rickman isn't up there is beyond me, his performance was truly heartbreaking. My friend was in slugs of tears and she wasn't even a potter fan.

  • DARIO | January 17, 2012 4:47 PMReply

    I can t believe Rickman is not on the list

  • Brigs | January 17, 2012 2:40 PMReply

    I agree about Rickman, but no one on this list mentioned Corey Stoll in Midnight in Paris. He stole a Woody Allen movie with ten minutes of screen time. Dude was brilliant.

    Rickman's performance was the best of the year for sure!

  • elsie | January 16, 2012 5:19 PMReply

    Alan Rickman should at the very LEAST be nominated (AND WIN) Because he is an amazing actor

  • Ike | January 16, 2012 1:22 PMReply

    Armie Hammer definitely gave the best performance

  • mayne | January 16, 2012 12:40 PMReply

    The Oscars don't like serialized performances. Ian McKellen was nominated ONCE for Lord of the Rings, and did not win. Is that to say he didn't do a good job all through the series? Or that the acting in those movies wasn't superb? The Oscars aren't the Emmys where Alec Baldwin and Jeremy Piven can just win every damn year. The Harry Potter movies were just a teat to milk more money out of something JK Rowling did a good job at creating. They were not made for the sake of good filmmaking, nor do they represent any category of excellence in film.

  • LALA | January 24, 2012 2:39 AM

    If he should be nominated this year, he MUST have won in Die Hard. That acting was a lot better than Snape.

  • Brig | January 20, 2012 11:05 AM

    Even if what you say of the HP franchise is true, and I agree to a certain extent. I think the movie as a whole was good but not award winning. That does not mean the Rickman's performance was anything less than amazing because the film overall was good but not amazing. He is a wonderful actor and his performance as Snape in all the movies but particularly this last one is one of the best I've ever seen. He should get awarded for his fine acting. However the Oscars snub their noses at movies like Harry Potter so I doubt he will be nominated however much he deserves it.

  • Rickman fan | January 16, 2012 9:49 AMReply

    Alan rickman doesn't deserve an oscar, an Oscar deserves an Alan Rickman.

  • Becky | January 16, 2012 9:30 AMReply

    Where is ALAN RICKMAN? His name should TOP the list! His performance in HP Deathly Hallows 2 was superb, this has to be a JOKE! I mean what is this the best Kiss Ass gets the nominations, lets just put aside ACTING ABILITY, and the ones who KISS ASS are nominated? You all obviously haven't noticed the impact his Character had on all 8 films, his acting was flawless, he was brilliant, and yet you all still overlooked him..SHAME ON YOU, SHAME ON YOU ALL! This list is just as others have said A JOKE!!!

  • Laura | January 16, 2012 7:34 AMReply

    Where the hell is Alan Rickman? This is a joke. Aside from everything else he has done, his work in the Deathly Hallows pt 2 was nothing short of amazing. I'm severely disappointed. When the movie was released last year i thought it wasn't the best time for them to do so purely because now it seems so long ago and people have very short memories. Those who decide on who gets nominated and who wins need to look back and properly remember the impact Mr Rickmans part in DHpt2 had on everyone...including other brilliant actors. He does deserve the Oscar, more than the others, not only for his acting abilities, but for his dedication and commitment to the role. This list truely is a joke.

  • MO | January 17, 2012 3:51 AM

    I have seen many films thru the years. There's one actor that has been in my mind since I can remember. His monologues, his enterpretation, his pose, his passion overthrew me every time. If it was Snow Cake, where as Alex he was sensual and caring and his disposition melted like snow, whether it was as a director, where Winter Guest seemed to me warm and full of things that were not said but were nonetheless obvious, whether he was a noble professor whoose hidden passion and belief took us on a decade-ride to discover one of th egreatest love stories ever told. Now, please tell me, because I don't understand at all, why is Alan Rickman not first on this list?

  • alice | January 16, 2012 7:28 AMReply

    Alan Rickman was amazing, he deserves to win and so does Harry Potter in general! it's just movie snobbery, if a film is fantasy and children can watch it, its instantly unworthy, never mind how good it was.

  • LALA | January 24, 2012 2:49 AM

    'Oliver!' won an Academy award. It was very appropriate for children. I think it was MADE for children. All films in the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy were nominated while one of them won Best Picture. Even Ian McKellen was nominated. Heck, the third won over 10 Oscars without losing a single nomination. And even that one was PG-13, the exact same rating as 'Deathly Hallows Pt. 2. Now, I'm not a big fan of 'Lord of the Rings' (or 'Harry Potter' for that matter), but don't complain about Alan Rickman, 'Harry Potter' or anything related!

  • CandUs | January 16, 2012 3:44 AMReply

    Where is Alan Rickman? I don't want to be rude, but whom think he isn't deserve it you don't know what is good. And not only he should bbe nominated, but he should win. He was great in All HP movies, but he deserves Oscar for his other actings too.... (sorry for bad english, I'm learning it now)

    My god, just give the price to Alan Rickman! He's so talented and he deserves it so badly, there's no question. He did more than "just cry" on HPDH2, he showed real love and pain in that movie. And not just in HP, all of his movies are just amazing. So just give him the price, for gods sake!

  • Alex | January 14, 2012 11:55 AMReply

    I really don't understand why Rickman or Fiennes aren't on this list, HP7p2 really was a spectacular film, and both of their acting was perfect. They both really did just seem to 'be' the characters they were portraying, Snape and Voldemort really did seem to be in the cinema with me. And if the Harry Potter series isn't worthy of a nomination because of the type of film it is, didn't Return of the King in the LOTR trilogy win Best Picture? For me, Deathly Hallows was a more emotional and hard hitting feature, by far

  • Shon | January 14, 2012 5:07 AMReply

    Yes yes yes Thea, Actress 100% with you. He made Snape from the Harry hater we all thorght he was to this emotional being that crys over his lost love!
    Ok all those actors are great but come on where is Alan Rickman? Was I the only one who fell in love with his acting from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and loved him all the way to The Deathly Hallows Part 2? Come on at least a nomination.
    Just Consider him as he is a great actor and has never won an oscar before.

    WHAT!?!?! Albert Brooks for Drive? I just watched that movie, and the minute it finished, I thought to myself, 'the acting wasn't too bad, except for Albert Brooks; he was horrible. His acting reminded me of the old guy in Strange Brew." Now I am blown away to be seeing people say he should be nominated. During what scene did I fall asleep and miss an Oscar-worthy performance?

  • Thea, Actress | January 11, 2012 9:08 PMReply

    Okay, people, people, we need to get one thing straight about this whole Alan Rickman thing.
    It's great if you think he was the strongest out of the HP cast and that you might therefore think he should be nominated, but that is not enough.
    And for the deluded people who claims that Alan Rickman didn't live up to what 'they had expected of him'... What the hell were you expecting? Were you expecting to see exactly what you imagined in your head the first time you read the book, or? Because truth be told, that would be the most impossible thing to ever live up to (if you had to please the imagination of every single person who read the book *geez*)

    Alan Rickman is one of the best actors we have.
    I am not pinning this on the HP films - I am pinning this on years of studying acting and years and years of watching Alan Rickman and many other actors 'do their thing'. Extraordinarily few live up to the standards of Alan Rickman's talent.

    Do I think he deserves an Oscar nom this year? Hell yeah.
    One can only hope that the Academy will actually start living up to it's job; which is to honour the best performances of the year - no matter which kind of film the performance was presented in.

    Hey guys...
    to all those who say alan rickman does not deserve an oscar nomination as best supporting actor i can only say: Why not? I`m not only saying that cause i`m a harry potter fan and i like the love-story and so on... I think that the Harry potter movies are really well done and it`s success shows that as well. People from all ages all over the world love this movies and i think that should be honoured. I think it`s a pity that only very "heavy" movies are getting oscar nominations because they are teaching and so on. I think moies who are entertaining on a level that HP does should be honoured as well and i don`t understand the jury at all cause they are ignoring the whole movie! It`s obviously that Rickman is the best actor of the cast and he was able to show a very complicated character. He touched so many people with his performance (me as well by the way) and that should be honoured. He deserves it as well as the whole movie deserves oscars for categories like special effects etc. And to all who say he didn`t was not able to be as emotional as snape in the books: I think it`s hard to play something if the original in the book is as good as heaven. He did a really great job and he is a good actor and the fact that he is touching so many people should show that he deserves it!!!

  • Lezlie | January 10, 2012 9:16 AMReply

    I am a fan of the Harry Potter books, but I really hated that last movie. It seemed to me it's all about that big, spectacular, CGI-overstuffed "epic" battle at the end, which, for me, haven't felt epic at all. And Alan Rickman as best supporting actor of the year? I mean, he's a great actor of course. But his performance wasn't that super and emotional. And, he didn't cry. Those were not tears comin out of his eyes, but memories. All in all, not only I didn't feel moved about that scene and his performance, I even felt it a little too forced. Sorry to all fellow Harry Potter fans, but Christopher Plummer, Albert Brooks, even chimpanzee-disguised Andy Serkis gave much better performances and more deserving an Oscar-nom (though I don't see Andy getting it). And, at last: The scene I probably only enjoyed in the whole HP8 movie was when Voldemort abandoned his wizard ways and started to beat the shit out of Harry muggle-style :D

    Just because he cried in the film when he died set to a dramatic score, doesn't make it Oscar worthy.

    Your comment shows that you didn't see the movie, or maybe you didnt't understand...

    Your comment is a joke.

    My thoughts exactly.

    How about the entire cast of Drive. Bryan Cranston, Ron Perlman, Oscar Issac... Those are three Oscar worthy performances. I realize you can't nominate 4 people from the same movie lol but just saying. But yes Albert Brooks is the best supporting actor in that film.

    No, Jonah Hill definitely was not better than Cranston or Perlman. But Jonah Hill is very good in Moneyball.

    I wish it would happen more often. Sometimes movies just have great casts. Oscars had to do it for "On the Waterfront" way back when, nominating 3 of the actors there. While I haven't seen either Moneyball or Drive, I doubt Jonah Hill did a better job than Bryan Cranston or Ron Perlman.
