    Dicaprio was excellent as Calvin Candie, but hands down the best performance of the movie was Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz, he stole the show and deserves the Oscar for best supporting actor.

      he deserves the oscar. This is Dicaprio's time. When I saw the film he blew me away. I felt like I wasn't watching Dicaprio. I felt I was watching Calvin Candie. Amazing performance. If he does not beat out Jones or Hoffman ima call it robbery.

        After seeing the film, I don't see him beating out Philip Seymour Hoffman in the Supporting category, but he's definitely deserving of a nomination.

          Is a Great Film, Waltz, Dicaprio and Jackson are Amazing, even though Jamie Foxx is the lead, he didn't give a memorable performance, when he is in the same room with Dicaprio and Waltz, you think of him as a supporting character, not the lead, I hope he does better in The Amazing Spider-Man 2
