The 63-year-old superstar has a chance to win a statuette in the best male supporting role category for his role in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Hanks was nominated five times before for the most important film prize in the world. He won the figurine twice, for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump. The actor is competing for the prize this year with two actors from The Irishman (Joe Pesci and Al Pacino), Brad Pitt (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes). All five nominees already have an Oscar in house, but Pitt did not win for his acting but as producer for 12 Years a Slave. According to the film magazine Screen, the average age for the nominees for best male supporting role is remarkably high at 71.2 years. At 44, the age for actresses in the supporting role category is rather low. In this category, Laura Dern (Marriage Story), Margot Robbie (Bombshell) and Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit) have a chance to win a prize.
