Oscars 2015 — Supporting Actor

This category seems pretty much answered by this point, since J.K Simmons has been winning each and every award he’s nominated for. His domineering jazz teacher in Whiplash is quite the exciting role, and certainly deserves to win. Just like Michael Keaton in the Best Actor category, Norton for Birdman seems to be coming into the runner up position despite his whirlwind performance in one of the most interesting films of the year.

  1. J.K. Simmons (Whiplash)
  2. Edward Norton (Birdman)
  3. Ethan Hawke (Boyhood)
  4. Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher)
  5. Robert Duvall (The Judge)
