Golden Derby's Joyce Eng agrees this is an easy win for Rockwell. She writes:

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” ended a 26-year drought in Best Supporting Actor, producing two nominees, Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, from the same film for the first time since “Bugsy” (1991) stars Harvey Keitel and Ben Kingsley lost to Jack Palance (“City Slickers”). By all appearances, it’s smooth sailing for Rockwell for the win, which would be the sixth time a Best Supporting Actor winner defeated a co-star in 18 dual duels.

Dafoe was considered the early Oscar frontrunner, though Rockwell ended up winning a bulk of the precursor awards. Dafoe carries the small, but praised "The Florida Project," especially as the film's sole nomination. He may get a resurgence and win in the end. Entertainment Weekly's Nick Romano writes:

Dafoe, who received an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actor for The Florida Project on Tuesday morning, seems more excited for the awareness he can bring to the indie film that could as opposed to his own recognition. “I don’t know what to say except for this movie is a movie I’m very proud of,” he says. “And it’s a movie [that] resonates with people, and they responded to my performance.”
Though he’s the only member of The Florida Project to receive an Oscar nomination this year, Dafoe will keep reminding you that this isn’t his film. “I was a little disappointed he didn’t get some love ‘cause this is very much his movie and he made a beautiful movie,” Dafoe says of Baker. “I was hoping either the film or him or one of the other performers would get recognized but it didn’t happen.”
