    No.

    It’s not about that he’s a first-time actor. He’s just not good enough.

    Neither was Mark Ruffalo in The Kids Are Alright. Yah, he was servicable but he didn’t really have anything to do save for that scene in the car, but that felt more scripted than truly “acted”….

    If you already know the answer, why are you polling others for their opinion?

    PS: What does “this time next year” mean?

    I don’t know the answer, just asking for an opinion. Simply saying someone isn’t “good enough” isn’t a valid response especially when you  consider a few people who do slip into a nomination seemingly by accident…

    Also, in a year’s time…(and certainly less), will we be referring to him as Oscar-nominee (or -winner) Dwight Henry? That’s all.

    I have seen the movie so I can say that he wasn’t good enough because he wasn’t. He was fine but not Oscar-worthy.

    He deserves the nomination but will probably not get it. Even if he was eligible at SAG. The category is packed with veterans (PS Hoffman, Alan Arkin, Robert De Niro), other previous winners (Christoph Waltz, Russell Crowe) and major actors who have yet to win an Oscar (Leo DiCaprio, Hal Holbrook). Ain’t no way does the unknown Henry in a small, barely seen indie that’s not even eligible at SAG get in.

    No. I’d rather see Jude Law take that spot.

    I was so impressed with Dwight Henry. He kept surprising me in Beasts, he is so good, as good as the guys who are going to get those coveted nominations.
    He wont get one this year, but I’d love to see him keep working. Then again, Demian Bichir received that nom last year, and imo, he was better than everyone else.

    Probably not. Beasts will fade as Fox Searchlight boosts Hitchcock and The Sessions. It may get Screenplay and Cinematography nods, but anything else is probably out. Which is good. It’s a charming film, but certainly not the masterpiece people trumpeted it as. Also, the race is about to be full of old veterans.

    This is my fear, that Beasts wont get the campaign it deserves from here on out. But, I’m never going to be convinced that it isnt a gem of a film and as good or better than most of what I’ve seen this year, including “Argo”, a much costlier, splashy, crowd-pleasing film. And imo, Beasts is as technically well made as the leisurely “The Master”.
