Anne Hathaway, Philip Seymour Hoffman Lead Best Supporting Actress / Actor Categories

Anne Hathaway Les Miserables Best Supporting ActressAnne Hathaway, Philip Seymour Hoffman have the leads in the supporting categories

[See previous post: "Jessica Chastain vs. Jennifer Lawrence: Best Actress Favorites."] Anne Hathaway, who suffers horrors in Tom Hooper's Les Misérables, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, who creates a new philosophy / religion in Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, are the two favorites in, respectively, the Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor categories this awards season.

Anne Hathaway leads the Best Supporting Actress category (bad pun intended) by a wide margin. Philip Seymour Hoffman, however, is only slightly ahead of Tommy Lee Jones in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln. See below.

Best Supporting Actress omissions

Among the actresses in supporting roles that have been all but ignored this awards season are Melissa Leo and Kelly Reilly, Flight; Noomi Rapace, Prometheus; Shirley MacLaine, Bernie; Penélope Cruz, To Rome with Love; Scarlett Johansson, Hitchcock; Anna Kendrick, End of Watch; Kristen Stewart, On the Road; and Jacki Weaver, Silver Linings Playbook.

Also: Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried, and Samantha Barks, Les Misérables; and Susan Sarandon for a quartet of movies: Robot & Frank, Cloud Atlas, Arbitrage, and Jeff, Who Lives at Home. And finally, somewhat paradoxically, top Best Supporting Actress pick Anne Hathaway, whose Catwoman in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises has been totally eclipsed by her Fantine.

Best Supporting Actor omissions

Among the "forgotten" performers in the Best Supporting Actor category are Jude Law, Anna Karenina; Paul Giamatti, Cosmopolis; William H. Macy, The Sessions; Tom Hiddleston, The Avengers; Michael Fassbender, Prometheus; Tom Cruise, Rock of Ages; Woody Allen and Roberto Benigni, To Rome with Love; and Hal Holbrook, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Spader, Lincoln.

Also: John Goodman, Flight and Argo; Irrfan Khan, Life of Pi; Viggo Mortensen, On the Road; Ian McKellen, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey; Ben Whishaw, Cloud Atlas; and Michael Caine and Tom Hardy, The Dark Knight Rises. Hardy is perhaps the year's biggest disappointment of all, as his Bane was to have been TDKR's grandiose equivalent to Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight.
