    For this century, 10 young males have won a BFCA award in this category, without any getting an Oscar nom. Who’s the best (or rank the others if you feel so inclined)?

    Dev Patel, even though he wasn’t a child.

    Boyhood wouldn’t have been Boyhood if it weren’t for Coltrane and I have a high sympathy for the character but his performance only would make sense if we learnt that he was a robot.

    ^ Yep. Overly charismatic child and teen actors have caused the movie-going world to collectively forget what most youngsters are actually like. Coltrane is completely authentic.

    So weird that Adèle Exarchopoulos won in this category for a three-hour sex epic.

    Tremblay, in a cake walk. Though Bell and Culkin were quite wonderful too.

    Hmm, so right now I believe the only male under 30 with an Oscar nom is Haley Joel Osment (28). Though the following under-30s got a Sag nom:
    Jacob Tremblay, 9
    Freddie Highmore, 24
    Dev Patel, 26
    Armie Hammer, 29.

    Many think Hammer will get an Oscar nom as a 30-year-old for Birth of a Nation, though that’s older than Haley at any rate.
    So I guess Osment will remain the currently-youngest male with a nom unless Ang Lee repeats his Brokeback magic on young lead Joe Alwyn?

    Only male winners? My favorite is Jamie Bell, but if best, I gotta go with Jacob Tremblay.

    From the nominees, the one is Tom Holland. Plenty of great options though, a lot of them would have been excellent Oscar nominees.

    He didn’t win, but Jaden Smith in Pursuit of Happyness was eight.
