Frontrunners are already forming in the Oscar race for Best Supporting Actor, according to early predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, many were recently seen by film critics and industry insiders at the Toronto, Telluride and Venice Film Festivals. We’ve confirmed most category placements with studios or campaigners, but some decisions aren’t yet final. Meantime, Gold Derby lists Brad Pitt
(“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) as well as Christian Bale
and Matt Damon
(“Ford v. Ferrari”) in both lead and supporting categories in our prediction center.
Here are the current top 10 supporting actor picks according to racetrack odds based upon our users’ predictions as of Sept. 17:
1. Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”): Pitt doesn’t have a designated category yet, so he appears both as a lead and supporting candidate on the Gold Derby site.
