    Congratulations, internet. It looks like we have successfully whined and b*tched our way into getting Leonardo DiCaprio an Oscar. We did it with Argo in the Best Picture category, and now we’re doing it with Leo! Because the idea of a good actor making it past his thirties without winning an Oscar is just unprecedented, so thank God we stopped that travesty on our last chance. Where should we head next? Christopher Nolan? Wes Anderson? Johnny Depp?

    Edward Norton. So many of his films are quite popular with the 18-30 male demographic.

    I’m guessing Johnny Depp would be next. I know his reputation has really taken a hit over the past few years, but people still remember him fondly for Edward Scissorhands, Pirates, Fear and Loathing, Donnie Brasco, and even Sweeney Todd. If he turns in a legitimately great performance again (Black Mass was a start I suppose) I could see a narrative building around him.

    I always wonder how much the general public “cares” about directors beyond the really ubiquitous ones like Spielberg, Tarantino, Scorsese, etc. I’d have to think if Christopher Nolan gets a significant shot at Oscar, the masses will support it. It’ll be interesting though what the reaction will be to bait like “Dunkirk” instead of usual Nolan-ish fare (“Inception,” “The Dark Knight,” “Interstellar,” etc.)

    I don’t think the internet stuff will have much to do with him winning. It is more that it is his 5th acting nod without winning so just like Julianne Moore last year…it is time. 

    Kate Winslet lampooned the pressure of being a 5 time nominee without winning in “Extras”.

    Let it be someone who at least can act.

    You all know it’s Amy Adams. Her “overdue” narrative is being written as we speak. And i will not be here for that.
