A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Tom Hanks

The impossibly nice and genuine children’s TV host, Fred Rogers, is picked to be profiled by a jaded magazine writer, but instead of analyzing him, Rogers ends up having a break through with the writer.

POSSIBLE

Brad Pitt holds the front-runner spot in Best Actor in a Supporting Role, having been sweeping the season. However, when reading how some of the Academy voters were voting, Tom Hanks name was coming up a lot. The fact that he’s playing an actual historic figure and such a beloved one on top of that, this could designate a possible upset. My bets are still on no, but if there is an upset, it will likely be Hanks.
