Best Supporting Actor Prediction for 2020 Oscars
Chris Raybon: Brad Pitt to Win, Pass on Bet
There will undoubtedly be a Goodfellas nostalgia vote for Joe Pesci here, a Godfather nostalgia vote for Al Pacino there, with a few Tom Hanks and Anthony Hopkins votes thrown in by the Academy’s foremost enthusiasts of Mr. Rogers and Pope Benedict XVI, respectively. Each had won an acting Oscar by 1995 — a year before Pitt’s first nomination (Best Supporting Actor in 12 Monkeys).
My model is 97.5% sure Pitt finally takes home his first Academy Award for acting.
Caroline Smith: Pitt
I can’t imagine a scenario in which Pitt, who is favored in this category, does not win. Pitt does not have any real competition among the other Best Supporting Actor nominees and I believe his performance in Quentin Tarantino’s film warrants a nomination over the other performances.
This is one of the safest bets to make — and books seem to agree.
