For Your Consideration: Best Supporting Actor

While I have not yet finalized any awards season predictions, I thought I’d list some of the performances I feel should be considered for a Best Supporting Actor nod (please note that this is for movies that have already been released; I’m sure most of the actual nominees will come from movies that will be opening soon).  I believe all of these performances were strong enough for consideration.
