Oscars 2014 — Best Supporting Actor

Jared Leto seems like the clear winner in this category for his performance as Rayon, a transgender AIDs patient, in Dallas Buyers Club. His portrayal was spectacular, the standout performance of DBC. He’s been picking up the award at most shows so far, but recently Barkhad Abdi won for his debut role in Captain Phillips but neither Leto nor Hill were nominated.

Indiewire looks at Michael Fassbender’s jarring portrayal of Master Epps in 12 Years a Slave as the should win and I can’t say I disagree. A hard role for anybody to portray, Fassbender gave a nuanced performance as this horrible slaveowner with more than just one note.

  1. Jared Leto — “Dallas Buyers Club”
  2. Michael Fassbender — “12 Years a Slave”
  3. Barkhad Abdi — “Captain Phillips”
  4. Bradley Cooper — “American Hustle”
  5. Jonah Hill — “The Wolf of Wall Street”

Oscars 2014 — Best Makeup and Hairstyling

It’s weird to see a Jackass film nominated for an Oscar, and even stranger to think that they’ll probably win, but that’s the prevailing opinion over here at TRW. Throughout all pranks during the film, Bad Grandpa it needed to be incredibly believable. It’ll be a close race with Dallas Buyers Club due to Jared Leto’s incredible transformation, but we’re thinking it’ll go to Bad Grandpa.

1. “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa” — Stephen Prouty
2. “Dallas Buyers Club” — Adruitha Lee and Robin Mathews
3. “The Lone Ranger” — Joel Harlow and Gloria Pasqua-Casny
