The nominees for the 2014 Oscar for Best Supporting Actor gave a wide range of performances, from dramatic to comedic. The contenders for this year’s award are Barkhad Abdi, Bradley Cooper, Michael Fassbender, Jonah Hill and Jared Leto. With so many talented candidates in the category, who do you think should win the Academy Award?

It’s no easy feat to hold your own in a movie when you’re playing opposite Tom Hanks, but Barkhad Abdi was up to the challenge. The actor made his cinematic debut  in ‘Captain Phillips,’ playing the pirate who hijacks Hanks’ ship. He received Golden Golden, BAFTA, and Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for the role.

Anyone who can rock hair curlers like Bradley Cooper is worthy of an Oscar nom. The actor played an FBI agent in the period piece, ‘American Hustle.’ This is the second year in a row that Bradley’s been nominated for an Academy Award.

Michael Fassbender deftly played the part of a cruel master ’12 Years a Slave.’ It’s the first Academy Award nomination for the actor, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the part.

Jonah Hill earned his second Oscar nomination for his role as a salesman who befriends Leonardo DiCaprio’s character in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ The wild role was outlandish, even for the comedic actor (his character ate a goldfish!).

‘Dallas Buyers Club’ scored major buzz from the critics, especially for Jared Leto’s performance. The actor scored an Oscar nod for his role as an HIV-positive transgender woman working with Matthew McConaughey’s character.

Who do you think should win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor? You can vote once an hour until the polls close on March 2 at 7:59PM ET.
