Does Woody Harrelson have a chance for the Oscar?


Most awards prognosticators have regarded the best supporting actor race as a done-deal ever since they first saw the magnetic Christoph Waltz’s performance in “Inglourious Basterds” months ago. Indeed,
from the film’s tension-filled opening scene right through its haunting ending, Waltz steals the show right from the biggest movie star in the world, Brad Pitt. But, as phase one of the awards season comes to an end, Scott Feinberg questions whether a man who was virtually unknown a year ago, and whose name still doesn’t ring a bell for most people, can actually engender enough support to beat out a field crowded with beloved veterans like Christopher Plummer (“The Last Station”), Stanley Tucci (“The Lovely Bones”), Matt Damon (“Invictus”), and Woody Harrelson (“The Messenger”).

In this video, Feinberg argues that Waltz’s biggest threat will probably come from Harrelson, a best actor nominee for “The People vs. Larry Flynt” 13 years ago who this year opened two movies at number one at the box-office, won rave reviews for his portrayal of a stern casualty notification officer opposite Ben Foster in Oren Moverman’s small film; and has, like Waltz, already received Golden Globe and SAG nods. For much more on this race, check out this week’s installment of “The Feinberg Feed” videocast.
