Best Supporting Actor: This may be the most impressive category this year considering the fact that all five nominees have already won Oscars. That also makes it exceedingly hard to predict. Tommy Lee Jones was long thought to be the frontrunner for "Lincoln," and that still is likely the case. But Christoph Waltz's win at the Golden Globes for "Django Unchained" will give him late momentum. Philip Seymour Hoffman was a strong choice before campaign season started for "The Master," but the buzz on him may have faded too much. And you can never count out Robert De Niro, who was golden in "Silver Linings Playbook." Forced to pick now, I'd go with Jones – but it's very much up in the air.
