You can never tell the future. Today’s promising star could be tomorrow’s tabloid flame-out on TMZ, and today’s bratty child star could grow up into an unexpected master thespian. But who do you think is coming up right now who is on track to be an Oscar nominee or a winner within the next 10 years?
A few off the top of my head: Miles Teller, Shailene Woodley, and Michael B. Jordan. They’ve all come pretty close already — Teller in “Whiplash,” Woodley in “Descendants,” and Jordan in “Fruitvale Station” — and they all have the benefit of the kind of mainstream popularity that could keep them going long enough for them to find that one perfect Oscar vehicle that pushes them over the line.August 19, 2015 at 7:26 pm #192192
Ah, you already mentioned Miles Teller (my favorite)! I’ll add Mia Wasikowska to the list. I think her receiving an Oscar is inevitable.August 19, 2015 at 7:50 pm #192193
Hopefully Emma Watson, Brianna Larson, and Elizabeth Olsen.August 19, 2015 at 8:06 pm #192194
The three you mentioned (Teller, Woodley, and Jordan). I’d throw in Emma Watson, Brie Larson, Elizabeth Olsen (all three also mentioned above), and I’ll add Keith Stanfield, Alicia Vikander (who very well could achieve that this year), Elle Fanning (also could do it this year for ‘About Ray’), and Chloe Grace Moretz.August 19, 2015 at 8:09 pm #192195
I believe Woodley will pull of a Jlaw and at least gets nominated for an Oscar. Jordan could get nominated for Creed this year ( Unless it sucks like Sucktastic 4)August 19, 2015 at 8:51 pm #192197
Michael B. Jordan

See: avi.August 19, 2015 at 9:25 pm #192199
Mia Wasikowska is a big one. If Jennifer Lawrence can win an Oscar, I don’t see why Shailene Woodley can’t do the same. And considering how close Emma Stone was this very year (most likely the runner-up), I think it’s just a matter of time for her. Some other television names that I hope make the Oscar cut eventually are Alison PIll (also wrongfully snubbed for “In Treatment”), Lauren Ambrose (a shining light on “Six Feet Under”), and Kiernan Shipka (one of the best child actors out there who stood toe-to-toe with Jon Hamm for the entirety of “Mad Men”).
For the dudes, it’ll be a tougher climb. One name that immediately comes to mind is Dane DeHaan (another screwed Emmy snub for “In Treatment”). MIchael B. Jordan more than proved his awards worth in “Fruitvale Station.” Same goes for Chadwick Boseman in “Get on Up.” Miles Teller has racked up an impressive run of performances in a short period of time (“Whiplash,” “Rabbit Hole,” “The Spectacular Now”), and being notable in films clearly beneath him (“Insurgent,” “Divergent,” “Footloose”). Let’s hope his cocky attitude and the generalized awfulness of “Fantastic Four” don’t derail him too much from Oscar’s path.August 19, 2015 at 9:37 pm #192200
Miles Teller would be at the top of my list, just for Whiplash alone (despite that absurd ending). However, he has an attitude to work on. It’s simmering just beneath the surface.August 19, 2015 at 11:09 pm #192201
Hoping for Maika Monroe! I think she’s terrific, and if I’m being honest, I don’t see Shailene Woodley winning an Oscar. Perhaps a Golden Globe in 5-6 years.August 19, 2015 at 11:20 pm #192202
Does Daniel Radcliffe count as up and coming? I could easily see him winning an oscar in the next 10-20 yearsAugust 20, 2015 at 3:30 am #192203

Ill stick with these 3 that ive been touting for

Despite the egregious TSN snub: Andrew Garfield. Miles Teller. Tom Holland. Michael B.Jordan. Dane DeHaan. Brie Larson. Shailene Woodley. Maika Monroe. Alicia Vikander. Emma Watson. Amy Schumer. And Emma Stone of course.
