    This year? Probably not, but he’s still a possibility. Someday? Almost certainly.

    Why? He’s more likely this year more than ever because the Best Actor pool is shallow this year. And Denzel is contending for his 3rd win. They may consider Hanks a viable alternative.

    While Hanks was just good in a just good movie and it was nothing extraordinary, I do feel like he can actually get in this year.

    No, I don’t think so, though I suspect a Globe nod is at least likely. My feeling is if he couldn’t get in for Bridge of Spies or Captain Phillips, which garnered many other Oscar nominations, he won’t make it for Sully, which isn’t really a player in other categories.

    I am going with No too, if I were a betting person (right now) I would predict the following:

    Casey Affleck-Manchester by the Sea
    Joel Edgerton-Loving
    Ryan Gosling-La La Land
    Dev Patel-Lion
    Denzel Washington-Fences

    I think Hanks is out because like others have said he falls into the Bridge of Spies, Captain Phillips territory, and he did not get in with either of these films which had tremendous Academy support.

    I know people will count Gosling out, but I think he is the biggest lock at the moment, but he is a previous Oscar nominee in the BP front runner (at the moment).

    Affleck was nominated for a film no one saw, and something tells me he will sweep the critics awards, I think he is safe too.

    Dev Patel has the Weinstein factor, that helps. I think people are underestimating Loving (from what I am seeing) and I think the film will do well.

    Washington is the only one I am predicting in a film no one has seen, but it makes sense.

    Anything could change, and people can surge. Maybe Jake Gyllenhaal in Nocturnal Animals, Michael Keaton in The Founder or Andrew Garfield in Silence. In a way I am glad this category is more wide open than usual.

    If he can’t get in this year, he is probably won’t ever get another nod. This year is weak as silly putty and Sully is the perfect dad movie box office hit.

    Yes, he’s deserving for it and it’s a “weak” year. Looks like most are going with Affleck, Edgerton, Gosling, and Denzel. Hanks looks good in this lineup.

    It doesn’t hurt that unlike Bridge of Spies or Captain Phillips, Hanks is clearly the best thing about Sully and he’s not upstaged by supporting performances. He’s probably in for this.

    Affleck, Edgerton, and Gosling are fairly safe bets at this point, and Washington’s track record and great role put him in that list too, even though we haven’t seen his movie. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m sure Hanks is great in Sully. The issue is, we haven’t seen Silence, we haven’t seen The Founder, and we haven’t seen any number of other films that could surprise. All it takes is one surprise performance to take Hanks out of that spot.

    I wouldn’t go so far as to say this is a weak year for Best Actor. It’s certainly more full than last year.

    The Founder did screen earlier this year and garnered pretty lukewarm buzz – it is, however, possible they’ve revamped the film since.

    Don’t forget Alwyn.

    Are you sure about that? Sully’s box office is very strong, and its reviews are pretty solid – a couple of MC points higher than American Sniper, in fact. I just don’t think you can easily dismiss Clint. This movie could get nods for Editing, Sound Editing (very likely as the contending duo are Oscar perennials for other Eastwood movies) and even Adapted Screenplay, as the field for that category isn’t all that strong, particularly if Moonlight gets fudged into Original.

    That said, I’m currently not predicting Hanks because of the apparent baitiness of Andrew Garfield and Matthew McConaughey, who respectively lost and gained a lot of weight for their roles. This is the sort of thing that helped Christian Bale edge out Hanks in 2013.

    I hope not. Would be insulting to nominate him for this but shut him out for Captain Phillips. Last year was a weak category too and he couldn’t even get in over a silly performance like Matt Damon in The Martian. I think Garfield is going to be the late breaker here and Sully’s momentum will pass. Also Patel is going supporting and I really don’t think McConaughey is in this race with Gold. Looks really cringeworthy bad.

    Yeah I forgot about that too, Barkhad Abdi and Mark Rylance both got nods as supporting. So they probably took away some of Hanks power. However that is not an excuse for why he didn’t get one in Captain Phillips. That last scene was phenomenal.

    He definitely should. He was incredible in Sully. He makes it look easy. Even though he almost always looks like himself, he just disappears into roles and makes you empathize with him incredibly well. He was robbed of a WIN for Captain Phillips, so yeah they owe him a nod at least. He’s been snubbed way too many times since winning 2. (Russell Crowe in Gladiator over Hanks in Cast Away? LOL)
