Prediction: Brad Pitt
My Pick: Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth is a perfect roll supporting Leonardo DiCaprio and it shows in every scene — whether they’re together or not. He holds his own as not only supporting, but as the second strong lead in this film. Not taking anything away from Pitt, but both The Irishman nominees cancel each other out and while Tom Hanks & Anthony Hopkins are top-notch actors, it’s not enough.
- I don’t think there is a sleeper for this category.
