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)?February 28, 2016 at 4:39 pm #219335
1) Jacob Tremblay, Room
2) Jamie Bell, Billy Elliot
3) Freddie Highmore, Finding NeverlandFebruary 28, 2016 at 5:03 pm #219336
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.February 28, 2016 at 9:28 pm #219337

^ 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.February 29, 2016 at 11:51 am #219339
1. Jacob Tremblay
2. Jamie Bell
3. Freddie Highmore (Finding Neverland)
4. Paul Dano
5. Ellar Coltrane
6. Freddie Highmore (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory)
7. Dev Patel
8. Thomas Horn – just bad, really bad
I haven’t seen the rest.February 29, 2016 at 11:52 am #219340
So weird that Adèle Exarchopoulos won in this category for a three-hour sex epic.February 29, 2016 at 12:14 pm #219341
Tremblay, in a cake walk. Though Bell and Culkin were quite wonderful too.February 29, 2016 at 12:16 pm #219342

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?June 15, 2016 at 2:56 pm #1201851495
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.June 15, 2016 at 3:19 pm #1201851504
He didn’t win, but Jaden Smith in Pursuit of Happyness was eight.
