I hope Joel Edgerton manages to squeeze in the race, especially over Hanks and fucking Sully. He's incredible in Loving - it's a very difficult role and he was making me cry by the end.

No clear one but I'm leaning Denzel taking this one, Affleck seems like it could be a case of the great but subdued ending up losing at the end

The statue is going to Affleck or Washington. Gosling is going to be firmly in a distant-but-respectable third place.

I didn't dig into it, but I saw there was a hit piece going around re: potential sexual misconduct on Affleck's part in the past. Oscar campaigns are becoming so brutal.

This does come down to Washington and Affleck, yes. I am not sure the Academy is ready to give Washington his third, but he does have a strong case.

Brad Pitt should probably get more credit overall and with his great role in Allied I think he deserves a nomination here at least.

As much as I love the film, I don't think Pitt gave an Oscar-worthy performance in Allied.

Viola not winning much shows how much Fences is a no show at critics awards, so I guess Denzel never had much of a chance to beat Affleck in them, the test for him will come later

This seems most likely now. Though Garfield could also get in for Hacksaw Ridge OR he splits the votes between the two and doesn't get in, making room for Joel Edgerton.

I think Andrew Garfield will get in either for playing the war hero or Silence. Either will be satisfactory for me.

... what if Ryan Reynolds gets in for Deadpool? lol

it'd be good for the ratings. Academy Award Nominee Ryan Reynolds, that'd be gold for Deadpool 2 marketing

Garfield actually makes films worse. I haven't seen Silence though.

I wouldn't count out an upset win for Ryan Gosling. He has made a lot of friends being in same movies with other big stars over the years. If actors vote for friendship over performance:

Actors who would vote for Casey Affleck if based on personal acquantaince/past movies:
Ben Affleck
Michelle Williams

Actors who would vote for Ryan Gosling if based on personal acquantaince/past movies:
Emma Stone
Harrison Ford
Brad Pitt (maybe, though he was in Assassination of Jesse James with Casey Affleck)
Christian Bale
Steve Carrell
Russell Crowe (maybe, if he doesn't vote for Denzel Washington)
Sean Penn
Josh Brolin
Bradley Cooper
Eva Mendes
George Clooney
Paul Giamatti
Marisa Tomei
Julianne Moore
Michelle Williams
Anthony Hopkins
Rachel McAdams
Ewan McGregor
Naomi Watts
Sandra Bullock

With Denzel losing at star driven Globes and not getting BAFTA nom his chances look done. I think only way Casey doesn't win is Gosling riding La La Land domination
