Is it Bale's trophy to lose ?

I just read earlier that Christian Bale has won another precursor best supporting actor award. He's already won a few and has been nominated in several others that haven't chosen their winners yet.

A few months ago I felt the supporting category was going to go to Geoffrey Rush for his fine portrayal as speech therapist Lionel Louge. But now I am sensing the tide shifting over Bale's way. Many are calling his portrayal as Dicky Ekland a career best in a already impressive filmography, basically transforming himself into Ekland physically and emotionally.

It's surprising and a little shocking that Bale has never been nominated for a Academy Award before, but that's starting to look like that will change soon enough when they announce the Oscar nominations later on.

Question is, could there be another person that could cancel Bale or Rush out ? I don't see it this year. You have Andrew Garfield ( The Social Network ) Mark Ruffalo ( The Kid's Are Alright ) Sam Rockwell ( Conviction ) Michael Douglas ( Wall Street 2 ) Bill Murray ( Get Low ) John Hawkes ( Winter's Bone ) Jeremy Renner ( The Town ) and Ed Harris ( The Way Back ) left for the other three slots in that category.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
