BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Enthusiastic as I am, I'm still not convinced that Javier Bardem's Oscar chances could be real, so I'm keeping him down on the list for now. And unfortunately, what's happening now is that two of the biggest possible spoilers here-- Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe-- remain unseen and impossible to quantify. I think both De Niro and especially McConaughey are weak in that top category, so it's possible to see a real horse race start in here once the race materializes. I'm also hearing a lot of support for Dwight Henry in other corners, but I have a harder time seeing that happen.
