Oscars: The prospect of Matthew McConaughey sneaking in

HollywoodNews.com: Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike received some of the most surprising and welcoming reviews of 2012 so far. At first, the film emotes a trashy, boy-stripper film with no brains and the distant cousin of Paul Verhhoeven’s Showgirls (1995). However, this sensitive and smartly written film has been one of the most profitable films of the year based on its mere $7 million budget. The film raked in over $112 million and with a well-placed DVD release, the film can only add to its domestic total.

E-mails, comments, and badgering from some of my colleagues have brought the prospect of Matthew McConaughey sneaking in, and being named among the Best Supporting Actor nominees this year. Along with Soderbergh’s film, McConaughey also had roles in Richard Linkater’s Bernie and William Freidkin’s Killer Joe. The presumed narrative being discussed is that McConaughey has finally transitioned himself from a supposed eye-candy lunk that “al-right’s” himself through all of his movies into a respected, character actor. Is the proposal a stretch? To some it may. On top of the three performances delivered thus far, he also has roles in Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy and Jeff Nichols’ Mud later this year. The  latter is said to be his best turn yet but no release date or distributor has come to fruition as of yet. In a crowded Best Actor field already, a career-defining turn in Nichols’ film would only highlight and add to the campaign for his supporting turn in Mike, if, this possibility is in fact, a feasible possibility.
