Best Supporting Actor

Here's a category that's had a front runner since before the film even came out. I think it's the only category this year with an absolute shoe in for the award.

Josh Brolin for Milk
Robert Downey Jr. for Tropic Thunder
Philip Seymour Hoffman for Doubt
Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight
Michael Shannon for Revolutionary Road

Heath Ledger. No explanation necessary.

What Should Win:
How many people would freak out if I didn't say Heath here? I'm not going to, but I'm just curious. Heath should definitely posthumously take this award, though I've said before that I wish I could have known how his performance would have been received if it wasn't for his untimely death. My biggest beef was with who did and didn't get nominated with Heath, and my second viewing of Milk hasn't changed my mind that I wish Franco was up there instead of Brolin.

It was so predictable. Anyone else would have surprised the heck out of me, but I would have also relished an upset, with no offence to Heath. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Timing is Everything

I picked Heath in the Sugar contest because my husband told me to, but I'm half expecting this to be the big upset of the year. :shrug:

I totally agree about Franco. And Emile Hirsch would be my third choice. Brolin's nom was a make-up for last year.
