John C. Reilly (‘Chicago’)

Best Supporting Actor

2003 wins: Las Vegas Film Critics Society Awards

Nominated: Golden Globes

Oscar pedigree: None

Reilly on his vocal delivery: “It’s instinctive. I throw everything I have at it and hope it lands in the right place.”

What we said: “Reilly is sweetly touching as the trusting sap.” — David Rooney, (Dec. 10)

What the others said: “Reilly is the movie’s conscience … and his baggy-pants ‘Mr. Cellophane’ number is rueful and angry.” — Elvis Mitchell, New York Times

This could be the night: With no one expecting Reilly to belt out a show-stopping tune, the surprise factor works in his favor.

Then comes the rub: His four performances this year might distract from a single one standing out.
