Watch Matthew McConaughey Win an Oscar in the First Trailer for ‘Dallas Buyers Club’

Matthew McConaughey’s return to A-list status appears to reach its zenith with his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, playing a withered down AIDS patient who’s not ready to throw in the towel. The first trailer for the film shows off the incredible weight the actor shed for the role – something Oscar loves – as he dropped down to 135 pounds for the role. McConaughey’s return to glory should really help his awards push (who doesn’t love a comeback story?), with performances in films like Magic Mike, Bernie, and Killer Joe last year, as well as his outstanding work in this year’s Mud.

Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner also star in Dallas Buyers Club, which will be in limited release November 1. Do you think McConaughey is the favorite to win Lead Actor this year?

When he’s not ranking just about everything or dominating boardgames, Mark is breaking down the Oscar race 24/7 with Rain Man-like stats and knowledge. In his downtime, you can find him commiserating with other Northeast Ohio sports fans because a hero isn’t complete without a little heartbreak. If Game of Thrones, Lost, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, and Survivor are your style, then congratulations, you have something in common with this inglourious basterd.
