I said from the first Django trailer that Leonardo DiCaprio was going to win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. While Tommy Lee Jones will get nominated,he's not going to win. Besides,Leonardo DiCaprio is due for an Oscar.

True, I think DiCaprio was absolutely snubbed for The Aviator. I don't know if he'll win for this, in fact I probably wouldn't give it to him myself, but I'd love to see him get a nomination and I won't be mad if he does end up winning for Django (because the Academy owes him).

Ralph Fiennes as Amon Goeth was better than both of them in 1994 IMO.

I can't say I agree or disagree because I haven't seen What's Eating Gilbert Grape. But out of Tommy Lee Jones or Ralph Fiennes, I probably would've given it to Ralph Fiennes.

Wouldn't it be great if he did to Jones what Jones did to him? Jones deserves to win but Leo pulls it out because the voters feel they owe him one for all of his previous work.

I honestly disagree. I think DiCaprio gave the better performance by far, I think Jones was fine but he played himself. He really didn't do much with his character in my opinion.

He'll probably split the votes with Waltz and Jones will win for Lincoln.

I'd consider Waltz a lead character (along with Foxx) even though he's being campaigned for supporting. But I really hope Jones doesn't win, I really think it the performance was very one-note and the character itself was bland. I don't think Jones really did much with the character, but he was alright nonetheless.

GO LEO. Can't wait to see him in a Tarantino and cowboy film. My favorite actor.
Dec 19 - 12:26 AM
He might get nominated, but I doubt that he'll win.

After seeing it, I agree. I think he'll get a nomination but he won't win.

Tommy Lee Jones has been dominating a lot of critics awards. There's definitely a chance at a nomination, but I don't think it's a sure thing when it comes to a win.
How messed up would it be if Leo lost to Jones AGAIN?

Jones plays the exact same character in every movie he's in. DiCaprio morphs; he almost looks like a different person. The only other two as good as him are Christian Bale and Daniel Day Lewis.

Agree, Six G.

Thank you Sixghun haha. Tommy Lee Jones was okay in Lincoln but it was a bland character to begin with, and I don't really think he did much with the character. DiCaprio is a fantastic actor and as you said, just completely becomes the characters that he plays.

I hope Tommy Lee Jones doesn't win, I think he gave an insanely overrated performance. He was fine, but his character was very one-note in my opinion.

If the Golden Globes are a sign of things to come, Leo will likely be running against Christoph Waltz, Tommy Lee Jones, and Philip S. Hoffman. His biggest threat being Waltz and Hoffman in my opinion.
I sure hope so. But, something tells me he won't win.. I really hope i'm wrong.
Dec 17 - 07:55 PM
I hope you're wrong too haha, but I agree. I don't see DiCaprio winning but wouldn't at all be mad if he ends up doing so.
