Best Supporting Actor

Awards Nominations:

Gotham Award Nomination

Predictions (10/9): Could this finally be Sam Rockwell’s year? After building a portfolio of beloved work and coming very close in past years, the actor seems to have his best shot yet in Three Billboards, winning best in show reviews alongside Frances McDormand. The category starts to get a bit thin when you look beyond him though. Can both Call Me By Your Name men make it in? Hammer has been on the rise for awhile now, but its Stuhlberg’s performance that’s winning raves. Willem Dafoe looks like The Florida Project‘s best hope for a major nomination (at this point), with Richard Jenkins looking like a possibility for The Shape of Water
