    I think Beatty (needed a Globe nod), Driver (tinsy-winsy film), Keaton (nobody’s seen his film), McConaughey (same as Keaton) and Wahlberg (no awards traction at all for film) can all very safely be removed from Oscar contention.

    I know but I put them as potshots just in case. Stranger things have happened.

    If Gyllenhaal surprises Oscar morning it will be amazing.

    I think if we do have a surprise it’s Gyllenhaal taking the 5th slot from Viggo.

    I love Jake Gyllenhaal and I thought I was all for his second nomination, but man, I wouldn’t be happy if it is for Nocturnal Animals. His performance is off – like everyone’s in that movie save Amy Adams (courtesy of Tom Ford’s wack direction). He is seen acting instead of being the character, he misses most of the notes. Weak, indeed.

    From this period I even prefer his performance in Demolition and I’m not fan of that one either.

    Or more specifically, weak at being weak. I never bought Gyllenhaal as someone who would get trampled on, especially by friggin Aaron Taylor-Johnson. Bad casting.

    But Gyllenhaal plays basically 3 characters in the film, the writer from Texas, the weak character at the beginning of the story, and then the broken vengeful character at the end of the movie. Sorry but his work is better then every performance I’ve seen with the exception of Affleck and Gosling (just saw LLL and his character has way more depth then people let on)

    I’d say it goes:
    1. Affleck
    2. Washington
    3. Gosling
    4. Garfield
    5. Mortensen
    6. Gyllenhaal
    7. Hanks
    8. Edgerton

    And everyone else is pretty much impossible. Feel bad for Hanks – incredibly weak field and odds are he’s going to miss his fourth awards bait film in a row. Also, history’s going to think it’s incredibly bizarre that Garfield’s nom was for Hacksaw and not Silence.

    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.
