Wolf of Wall Street producers Riza Aziz and Joey McFarland think Matthew McConaughey deserves a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his five minute scene.

Speaking about the 44-year-old Dallas Buyers Club star to Bang Showbiz Aziz said, "If you could have a Best Supporting Actor nomination for a five-minute scene, he would definitely have to be a shoe-in for that."

McFarland then continued to say, "Martin Scorsese and Ellen Lewis, our casting director, one of their strongest points is bringing the right actors to the roles. Matthew's had an amazing year with Mud, Dallas Buyers Club and now Wolf of Wall Street... he was the perfect fit. What he did for the Mark Hanna role was larger than life and more than anyone expected."

Wolf of Wall Street is set for release on January 17 while Dallas Buyers Club will hit cinemas on February 7.
