I missed this part of the Oscar run up. Was he ever considering going lead? As it turned out this year Supporting Actor was more competitive than lead. I think he may have got Denzel’s spot had he gone for the Best Actor award.March 27, 2018 at 6:10 pm #1202520048
Lol no.March 27, 2018 at 6:49 pm #1202520055

No. He was rightfully snubbed.March 27, 2018 at 7:00 pm #1202520060

No. Double leading nods are out of fashion now. Hammer’s best bet was in supporting actor. He wouldn’t have made it in lead over Denzel or James Franco pre-scandal.March 27, 2018 at 9:16 pm #1202520148
Maybe. Prior to James Franco’s scandal, he wouldn’t have had a chance. But post-Franco scandal, he could’ve been a wild card along with Hanks and Washington, the latter who ended up being the lucky one.March 27, 2018 at 10:14 pm #1202520159
Odd how he left Lead Actor to avoid a double nomination and then went into supporting and faced the same problem with Michael Stuhlbarg.March 28, 2018 at 1:32 am #1202520215
If anything we should be talking about how Sebastian Stan should have made it into the supporting actor lineup. Without his great performance in I, Tonya the film wouldn’t have worked. It was his film as much as Allison and Margot and dare I say outshone Margot in my opinion.March 28, 2018 at 1:37 am #1202520220

“Left Lead Actor”? lol? He was never lead, I mean he’s not lead at all in the film, receiving top billing doesn’t make him lead.March 28, 2018 at 2:07 am #1202520240
I’m actually glad he was snubbed. Lead would be even harder to get in.March 28, 2018 at 5:39 am #1202520287
I think he should have gone lead. Why not? It didn’t work out in supporting. People who objected to the performance still would have.
Hammer’s presence wouldn’t have stalled Chalamet the way it blocked Stuhlbarg. If for that reason alone, I wish he’d gone lead.
