Predictably, awards season begins with almost every major category either being characterized as too competitive or more wide open then you could possibly imagine. The 2012 best supporting actor field is somehow an intriguing mix of both (at the moment).

On the one hand, there seem to be surefire bets such as Alan Arkin’s entertaining turn in “Argo,” Philip Seymour Hoffman’s monstrous work in “The Master” and Tommy Lee Jones’ acclaimed turn in “Lincoln.” If you are to take those three as expected locks — for argument’s sake, of course — that leaves two slots open and here’s where the fun begins. The competition for these final honorees may actually be more competitive than the battle for swing states on Nov. 6. With that in mind, HitFix’s awards experts have run down these year’s diverse field providing the pros and cons for each possible contender.

Garrett Hedlund – ‘On the Road’

Pro: Taking on Dean Moriarty is a titanic task by anyone’s measure and Garrett Hedlund slid right in and found the right notes. He brought all the allure, enigma and charisma to the character readers of the great novel would have expected and there’s always something to be said for surprising the audience. Not many saw this coming.

Con: But the movie is tiny and IFC Films will likely have a difficult time muscling it into the conversation. Reaction has been interestingly split since Cannes so there isn’t a huge wave of passion pushing it along.
