Oscars 2019 was a major event in Hollywood that took place just a while back. The awards show has been a staple ever since it started the trend 91 years ago and very little has changed over the years. A lot of categories have been added but other than its more modern format, the Oscars is still unchanged.
This year, we see a plethora of new faces that grace the screen and surprisingly, many of them are that good (which is a really good thing); like for example, the Oscars Best Supporting Actor nominees are equally good at their craft; it’s really hard to compare them at this point. Although only one was awarded, the rest were just as amazing. Here are the nominees for Best Supporting Actor in the 91st Oscar Awards:
Mahershala Ali in Green Book (WINNER)
Mahershala Ali isn’t the most familiar name in the industry but rest assured he’s doing his job right. He won the ‘Best Supporting Actor’ category in his role as Dr. Donald Shirley, an African-American concert pianist who befriends a white working class bouncer who ultimately drives him to the south during a 1962 tour.
Adam Driver in BlackKKlansman
Adam Driver is a much more familiar personality but this is Driver’s first Oscar nomination. He portrays a Jewish cop named Flip Zimmerman in the movie BlackKKlansman. He teams up with an African-American officer as they infiltrate a local chapter of the KKK.
Sam Elliott in A Star is Born
Sam Elliott plays Bobby, a weary road manager who has had enough of the antics that his problematic younger brother, rock star Jackson Maine, comes up with.
Richard E. Grant in Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Jack Hock is played by Richard E. Grant, a condoning alcoholic who advocates her friend’s scheme in forging letters supposedly written by famous authors.
Sam Rockwell in Vice
As George W. Bush, Sam Rockwell is the brusque Texan whose second-in-command, Dick Cheney, is the person behind many of his policies during the duration of their term in the office.
