Ben Affleck is going to win this year’s Supporting Actor Oscar. You heard it here first.

ForThe Tender Bar. His competition is all over the place with not a single strong front runner, and not a single well known competitor. Kodi Scot-McPhee in The Power of The Dog maybe today’s front runner but I don’t think Hollywood is giving that kid an Oscar.

The Tender Bar was just released, Ben is getting raves George Clooney directed it and Ben is everywhere in the press right now.

People feel sorry for passing him for even a nomination for directing Argo.

I think all the positive momentum is building at exactly the right time. .

Getting raves for playing himself. It's his Good Will Hunting character 20 years later. I thought the movie was kind of stock and boring. It doesn't deserve any awards, but I'm sure Clooney will manage to schmooze it into contention anyway.

I think he will get nominated, but I’ll be surprised if he wins.

I watched The Tender Bar yesterday and it was a forgetable piece of trash. Ben Affleck basically played himself...I would love for someone to point me to a scene where he does anything particularly amazing.

It required no talent to do that role. Is J Lo helping fund the campaign? Maybe she feels bad about that movie they did together.

Kodi deserves it, that was an amazing performance.

I see JLo has joined us here on DL at OP! Welcome!

I enjoyed the movie. Ben was certainly watchable and even if he's playing a version of himself, albeit a LongIsland one, it's a good performance.

PLUS, Ben's hot again. Yay!

His new wig is very attractive.

I don’t get the people who think he’s hot now. His face looks like beef jerky.

I don't think he'll win, but he was very good.

He was great at...playing himself? Wow, yeah. Give him an Oscar for that!

One of the worst movies of the year. It would be a crime if he got an Oscar for THAT.
