    I’m reasonably confident Hanks no longer has a prayer here. Affleck, Washington and Gosling are the shoo-ins, with Garfield and Mortensen looking pretty good for the last two slots, though Edgerton and Reynolds are still lurking.

    I mean it’s absolutely a long shot, but never underestimate a well-received Clint Eastwood pic. Reynolds would need a Melissa McCarthy level groundswell of support to get a nom. He hasn’t had that.

    Doesn’t GoldDerby have moderators anymore? Can’t they correct the titles of the threads? Way too many threads and titles with mistakes on them.

    Affleck isn’t winning. This might end up being Denzel’s third Oscar. If the performance is there, the press, bloggers and public in general will carry this all the way to the end. Can people really see the Globes rewarding Affleck? Will SAG snub Denzel after what also looks like a great directorial effort? And that he’s helping Davis win her own Oscar and getting other black actors nominated the year after #oscarsowhite? Which was the only reason Idris Elba won this year at SAG (twice…). You can see all the televised awards going to him. And you can expect him to campaign hard as this is his own movie and passion project. If all goes well critically, it’s pretty much over. It might be too much to handle for other actors and their campaigns.

    I can’t imagine Affleck beating this, or Silence suddenly appearing, exploding on the scene with such strength that it gives an Oscar to Andrew Garfield.

    There’s really nobody else in this race. Hanks might not be nominated, Edgerton looks like he’s gone, Keaton and McCounaughey (second Oscar so soon? yeah right) look like they’ll never arrive, Gosling looks like a wave rider, Patel isn’t even in this category, there’s nobody else. It looks like it’s done. Affleck vs. Washington, and Washington wins.

    Why quote a post that I made so long ago (in november) that Fences wasn’t out, Gold and The Founder were still in the race, Mortensen wasn’t even considered that much, Patel was a lead contender to some people and Edgerton was still a possibility? Is it really that hard to imagine and understanding anybody who back in november didn’t think Affleck was winning when Fences had just screened and those attending were going crazy for Denzel and confirming Viola?

    That would be like me quoting some comments below me back then still thinking Beatty was going to happen, including the person who said “understimate Warren Beatty in Hollywood at your own peril”. He ended up showing his power, sure, but for the wrong reasons.

    Anyway I was Team Affleck months before the Oscars.
