Who I think will win: Christopher Plummer
Who I liked the most: Christopher Plummer
What a category this year. It is filled with hollywood veterans and incredible actors, who all did amazing in these roles. Even Jonah Hill came out and proved himself worthy, something I personally didn’t expect to see.
Beginners was a charming, lovely movie. I really enjoyed it, and the best part about it was Christopher Plummer. The character, based on writer/director Mike Mills‘ own father, is really fun and genuine, and Plummer reflected that wonderfully. I loved this performance, and knew that he would get huge recognition for it as soon as I watched it.
I didn’t get to see My Week with Marilyn or Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, but I know the acting caliber both of Kenneth Branagh and Max von Sydow is really high. I would give Nolte the second place prize here, as I liked the movie Warrior even more than Beginners, and he was spectacular in that. And again, Jonah Hill was really surprising, and he deserves this nomination.
