This year’s Supporting Actor field consisted of a veteran Oscar winner going up against a bunch of newcomers. That may or may not prove advantageous, as all of the first-time nominees are prominent players in the Best Picture nominees, while JK Simmons (“Whiplash”) stars in Aaron Sorkin’s delightful “Being the Ricardos” (Amazon), which received a PGA nomination but missed out on best picture.

Beyond his element of scope, Peter is happy for the couple’s newfound happiness, until George’s odd brother Phil (nominated as Benedict Cumberbatch), a bully , looking to sabotage his new family every now and then.

Also a first-time lead at the Oscars panel was, surprisingly, Belfast-born stage veteran Ciaran Hinds, who shared the screen with Dame Judi Dench as the doting grandparents to young Buddy (Jude Hill) on Kenneth Branagh’s festive hit, ’60s anniversary’ Belfast” (Focus). Hinds and Dench makes us laugh and care and cry in Branagh’s moving testimony about family and loss.
