      Juno Temple deserves it for having the balls to star in Killer Joe.

      i agree, Temple was excellent in Killer Joe - and she had to do some intense stuff - she deserved a Best Supporting Actress nom

      Can someone answer me if Cummberbatch has been up for this award already ? It just feels with the way 2013 is going to turn out for him you'd think this would be the type of award he'd be up for.
