Disney doesn't seem to be campaigning for RDJ.

Yeah I don’t understand that. RDJ was probably out now, mostly because of Jaquin, but they had eleven years of history to play with during the campaign and it was definitely their best chance at a major category. He also got really skinny for that one part and the oscars love that shit.

He was probably never getting in anyways, but RDJ also screams "wouldn't give a shit about campaigning for awards". Maybe in supporting actor (but that category is solid this year too)

Wonder if Eddie Murphy can sneak in, he is getting a lot of praise for Dolmite.

He would normally but I think this year is stupidly stacked, the #4 guy (Pryce) could've been a winner in other years I think, #5 is probably Banderas (I think they will want to nominate him as super classy guy in career best performance and having never been nominated) or De Niro (in a very strong BP film and looks like his best role in a while)

The biggest thing holding Taron back will be... Rami winning last year.

True, I wholly expect a BAFTA win for him, should at least be nominee #5

Adam Driver, Joaquin Phoenix and Leo seem like safe bets.

Taron Egerton was so good in Rocketman, I hope he gets a nom but yeah, seems like a competitive year.

Taron better get nominated, Elton John seems to be campaigning hard for him, he absolutely deserves it.

I think Taron could win Comedy/Musical Actor at the Globes and maybe that could give him a push. He absolutely deserves a nomination, and he blew Rami Malek out of the water lol.

I think Eddie Murphy has a pretty good shot at a nomination. It’s the exact type of biopic role these people eat up.

Joaquin Phoenix, Joker feels like its almost a lock at this point. So universally embraced by audiences and critics.

In the most recent Irishman trailer De Niro has a "I wasn't a good father" scene. No way he misses a nomination after that.

Yeah I don't see how Phoenix loses. Even people who hated the film praise him. The ONLY thing that may hold him back is that Ledger won it for the same role.

I feel more confident in predicting a Phoenix win than I do in predicting 4 of the 5 nominees. My current power rankings are:

1. Phoenix
2. DeNiro
3. Banderas
4. Pitt
5. Sandler
6. Pryce
7. Driver
8. Egerton

but everyone outside the Phoenix/De Niro (who are the only locks imo) could basically be shuffled to any other position.


Way too low on Driver. He is still a potential winner. I think Sandler is also a long shot right now, he is kind of Ethan Hawke of this year where critics will go for Uncut Gems but it still feels like a no nomination movie

And is that Pitt for Ad Astra? Nah. Or did you mean to write DiCaprio

Paul Walter Hauser is a sleeper

Jaquin is a huge favorite right now, but would anybody be that surprised if he was just completely snubbed? It's a fascinating best actor race this year.

So weird Irishman is such a frontrunner and De Niro is getting no noms.

Gut is tellling me he's getting in but it's such a crowded slot.

This is probably the most stacked any category in any awards show in the decade
