New Predix: Best Supporting Actor 11/8

1. Javier Bardem-No Country for Old Men-By far the safest bet in this race, and one of this year's most exciting contenders. Everyone loves a villain performance winning an Oscar.

2. Philip Bosco-The Savages
-Seems to be a showstealing performance, and if the good reviews continue, he's looking strong.

3. Philip Seymour Hoffman-Charlie Wilson's War-He has to be nominated for something this year. Doesn't he?

4. Max von Sydow-The Diving Bell & the Butterfly-I don't know much about the film at all, but he's gotten a fair amount of buzz so far. And hey, better to redeem a snub 34 years later than never.

5. Paul Dano-There Will be Blood-Based solely on my good feeling about this project.

6. Tom Wilkinson-Michael Clayton-Buzz is slowly but surely declining.

7. Casey Affleck-The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford-His chances are even slimmer now with Gone Baby Gone (though that is a lead performance).

8. Hal Halbrook-Into the Wild-Why is this even being predicted?

9. Michael Cera-Juno-Sure to be a scene stealer, but an Oscar nomination is still a very long way away.

10. Russell Crowe-American Gangster-The response has been good, but it's all about his co-star.
