2023 Oscars Predictions: Best Supporting Actor
CATEGORY COMMENTARY: Barry Keoghan’s shocking triumph over comeback sensation Ke Huy Quan from “Everything Everywhere All at Once” was an eye-raiser at the BAFTAs. Especially even over his co-star Brendan Gleeson.
Although Keoghan isn’t expected to translate to the Oscars (Quan is still favored for SAG), it does point to the overall strength for “Banshees” and why it could be a spoiler in categories like original screenplay and even best picture.
Quan, 51, has received rousing reviews for his turn as Waymond Wang, the delightfully goofy husband in the Daniels’ whimsical multiverse comedy “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Along the lines of past hardworking actors who received their big Oscar breaks later in their careers — such as last year’s winner Troy Kotsur for “CODA” (2021) — Quan’s comeback story is one of the season’s bright spots.
The final SAG predictions are on Variety.
