Oscars Predictions 2019: Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor

We’ve made it to the acting awards! Support goes first. Here’s who we think will take the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

Ladies first.

Darren

Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk”

The tea-leaves are pointing in her direction.

Dean

Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk”

Steep competition from Amy (always a bridesmaid) Adams, two “Favourites” and Roma‘s first time nominee Marina de Tavira, but I believe Regina King has got this one in the bag. Not a ton of love this year for If Beale Street Could Talk but I’m putting my money of King.

Garth

Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk”

Despite not winning a SAG award, or not having the Oscar nominations, Regina King has been earmarked as the one to take home the trophy. With the talent on display in this category, and her performance in Beale Street, she’ll just about grab it.

Stephen

Rachel Weisz, “The Favourite”

For me, this is a toss-up between Weisz and Stone. The ladies in The Favourite are a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to a stunning screenplay and a captivating story, Weisz is able to deliver a layered performance portraying love, envy, dominance and straight-up sass, and I’m here for all of it.

Tendai

Regina King, “If Beale Street Could Talk”

I mean come on. She voiced Huey and Riley in Boondocks. That alone deserves an Oscar! Back to reality, Ms King is proving to be a superstar and in this role, she really took things to the highest level. Absolutely outstanding in this African American picture, she stood up and really brought the depth in the character and touched all the right emotions in me.

Vernon

Rachel Weisz, “The Favourite”

Just like best actor this category got me crying because Regina King was so good in If Beale Street Could Talk but oh God Rachel will win her second Oscar in the same category once again.

And now the gentlemen…

Darren

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”

All signs point to Ali winning, just one question why is Sam Rockwell even nominated.

Dean

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”

It seems a bit unfair to say he should win this because he won so many other awards for this role so far or because he’s won an Oscar for this category in the past. His performance should do the talking. Sure, the track record is there, but there’s a reason for that. What an actor. What a performance. It’s his again.

Garth

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”

Another category that that doesn’t really sit well with me. Adam Driver and Sam Elliot deliver in their respective movies and I think that this race should’ve been three-ways. Mahershala however, with his second Oscar nomination in this category has the SAG and Golden Globes on his side. Not to take away from his performance as Dr. Donald Shirley, a truly great performance which surely will win him this award. Again.

Stephen

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”

Could it be Oscar number 2 for this guy? I think so. Of the other contenders, he has the meatier role in the most Oscar-baity film. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Green Book. Yeah it was fine, but his performances are always amazing, and this film is just the perfect Oscar film. It’s like it was made in a lab.

Tendai

Sam Elliott, “A Star is Born”

It’s funny to be picking him over the lead candidate, Mahershala Ali and to be honest, I don’t think Ali should win it. Nonetheless, Eliot has a vibe that reminds me of a man that deserves it for the work he has done. A Star Is Born is beautiful and Eliot is ‘beautifuller’ in it. I really felt him here and he’s got my nod for the win.

Vernon

Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”

Since I saw Remi in HOUSE OF CARDS, tall drink of black juice I knew this actor was one of the best that ever came out of a David Fincher’s loin cloth. He was amazing in Green Book. Subtle and one of the most respectable characters in a segration drama/biopic.
