BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Lots of shakeups going on in here, to accommodate the supporting players from Les Mis-- who haven't gotten quite the same raves as Jackman and their female counterparts, it's worth noting-- and also Jason Clarke in Zero Dark Thirty, who has the heftiest role aside from Chastain's and could benefit from that movie's increased profile if it happens. But aside from Jones there seem to be no locks here yet, though Arkin seems strong even as Argo's frontrunner status drops. I'll know next week if Crowe and Redmayne are strong enough in Les Miserables to shake things up here even more.
