2015 Best Supporting Actor and Actress Predictions: Simmons, Arquette, and…

jk-simmons-oscar-whiplash


Since my last 2015 Oscar predictions update, Interstellar landed…interestingly. I actually haven’t seen the film yet, so I can’t say too much, but it’s discouraging to see how much Nolan-related baggage—both positive and negative—writers are bringing into their reviews of the guy’s movie.

But that’s neither here nor there for the purpose of this post because Interstellar doesn’t boast much in the way of viable Best Supporting Actor or Actress contenders. Jessica Chastain is a possibility, but that’s about it. In fact, many of the year’s biggest and best films don’t have slam-dunk nominees in these categories. J.K. Simmons and Patricia Arquette have been your de facto frontrunners, for Whiplash and Boyhood respectively, since Sundance for crying out loud, so these will either be very anti-climactic races or our few still-unknown films will inject some 11th-hour excitement.

Later this week, following the American Sniper and Selma AFI premieres, I’ll have updates to my Best Picture predictions, as well as Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Actress. And this weekend or early next week, I hope to dig into the 134 films eligible for Best Documentary Feature consideration.
