    I am certain Michael Keaton will win best actor for several reasons

    -Keaton is a veteran actor who starred in many films but then has been off the radar all of a sudden years later he makes a comeback with his Birdman performance and has his time in the spotlight again

    -Keaton is the oldest out of the best actor nominees at age 63

    – Keaton has never won an Oscar

    -It is Keatons last chance

    -Keatons character has a relatable back story

    -After all these years It feels like it is Michael Keatons time to be honored

    – Keaton will never get a role like this ever again

    -Redmayne and Cumberbatch’s votes will cancel each other out because they are both british also there’s controversy behind Cooper and Carrels characters which makes Keaton the safest

    -Keaton gave a good performance

    -Keaton was in superhero/batman movies

    -Keaton has been winning more critics group awards than redmayne,cooper,cumberbatch,and carrell Including BFCA. If Keaton wins SAG that will propel him to winning the Oscar.

    So do you think I hit the nail on the head?

    You don’t know that. People said the same thing for Christopher Plummer (2009) and Jacki Weaver (2010) and they both earned another nomination.

     

    For all we know this ends up being the only nomination for Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Eddie Redmayne.

    This is how the race is going to go. Keaton’s got this locked down. He’s winning the whole thing. If Eddie wins SAG then he’s going to win the race. That’s final. Cooper has no chance, Cumberbatch has no chance, Carell has no chance. And it’s not because he has the best peformance it’s because of his story.

    Cooper is coming on very strong and has made this category up-for-grabs.

    Keaton gave a VERY good performance. However, he’s never been on Oscar’s radar (a darkhorse for CLEAN AND SOBER), while this is Cooper’s third consecutive nomination, even though he lost twice to practically sure things. Keaton has a whole lot going for him, but I think, ultimately, actors will decide this race according to whose performance they liked the best. Based on that, he has an excellent chance of winning, but it’s not a lock.

    And if you’re going to play the age card, here is who would win if they just gave it to the oldest people each year

    2013- Bruce Dern
    2012- Denzel Washington
    2011- Gary Oldman
    2010- Jeff Bridges
    2009- Morgan Freeman
    2008- Frank Langella
    2007- Tommy Lee Jones
    2006- Peter O’Toole

    So no age is not a plausible argument in this category and “he played Batman” yeah cause Val Kilmer is winning an Oscar someday soon.

    All Batman actors must contend for Oscars. Val Kilmer needs to compete with Adam West for the next shot.

    Yet none of them were the frontrunners, kemosabe  Michael Keaton is undeniably the frontrunner, with Redmayne runner-up and Cooper a slight potential spoiler. So let’s steer away from age with this, because I don’t think Keaton’s age will affect him winning, but his narrative and performance (although I absolutely agree with OP)

    Too much topics on Michael Keaton. Why couldn’t you just post your opinion to Machbeth’s topic or the Best Actor topic? I know we supposed to let people make new and new topics, but it’s annoying to see new and new topics about the same thing.

    It’s amazing to me that people still have Michael Keaton as their
    prediction choice for best actor (Oscars) after that SAG win for
    Redmayne. There seemed to be this huge push for Keaton months on end,
    but I think he’s done. There’s no way he’s getting the BAFTA. I mean,
    not only is Redmayne a brit, so is Hawking! Redmayne is one of their
    own, what can Keaton provide to them? Nothing. BAFTA is Redmayne’s or
    Cumberbatch’s to win. It always has been. After no SAG, Keaton doesn’t
    stand a chance.

     

    Huh? What does Julianne Moore and Patricia Arquette provide them? They can’t possibly vote against one of their own . . .

     

    It’s funny how people wanted one of the favorites to lose an award so there would be a race. Now that someone new won they’re just calling the race over anyway. One can’t win.

    Redmayne has major actor and actress support, this site’s support (cool that he checks this place out and called in),

     

    Anybody else have an issue with this? I always thought goldderby was neutral.

    I see what you’re saying and I agree with the principle, but since when has any one of  us been neutral as a collective bunch of film goers, cheerleaders, and detractors?

    We’re not exactly a pitch team either. Were that the case, we might as well team up with Harvey and his ilk.

    I don’t think Eddie calling to say Thank You to Tom qualifies as GDerby leaning toward him.  Most of the GDerby editors were predicting Keaton.

    And if Gderby were “favoring” him than it would at least balance out the a$$ kissing Kris Tapley and Jeff Wells have been doing to Keaton all season.  Tapley’s Keaton fetish has turned HitFix into a Keaton shrine for 4 months now.  He has made Sasha Stone’s David Fincher obsession seem tame in comparison.

    Still hoping Bradley and his fake baby snipe past both of them!

    And People Magazine? That bastian of factual “information” suited for voters who fill out their ballots with crayons? Do they count too?
