Oscar Best Supporting Actor

Matt Damon, "Invictus"
Woody Harrelson, "The Messenger"
Christopher Plummer, "The Last Station"
Stanley Tucci, "The Lovely Bones"
Christoph Waltz, "Inglourious Basterds"

Christoph Waltz, who's won every major award so far (including SAG, Globe, and BFCA) and Woody Harrelson are the definites here, followed by Matt Damon, who'd earn his first nomination in 12 years. With "Me and Orson Welles' " Christian McKay becoming more and more of a long shot, the last two slots will likely go to veterans who've never been nominated despite decades of strong work: Stanley Tucci (so fabulous in "Julie & Julia" but more likely to get noticed for his villainous role in "The Lovely Bones"), Christopher Plummer (resolute as a dying Tolstoy in "The Last Station"), or "An Education's" Alfred Molina, who may find himself drawing the short straw this year.
