    1. Joaquin Phoenix, Joker
    2. Adam Driver, Marriage Story
    3. Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood
    4. Taron Egerton, Rocketman
    5. Timothée Chalamet, The King

    Hopefully Rhys can score a nod. Pattinson could also get in if the buzz is there.

    I’m sorry but what? DiCaprio deserves a RAZZIE award for his poor performance in OUATIH.

    This boiled my blood ngl,my BP went upto and 300/300 then I suddenly remembered this the a guy who stanned Rami in BO Rap and things got better from there on.It is true that in a world where Rami’s performance in BO Rap can win Oscar,Leo in OUTIH deserve Razzie.Things have gone opposite I guess.

    Darlings, DiCaprio isn’t winning anything for Once and Always Trash in Hollywood. The hype will die in a month. He will get a nod for the Globes and that’s it. That’s what he deserves based on his average performance playing himself

    Over these past 5 yrs I have been on interent,typical Leo haters or haters of movies he make will say mostly say “pLaYiNg HiMsElF”,that is the typical thing they will repeat on and on and on.I have seen it in past on ImDB message boards,Reddit,Twitter.They also will say this without even seeing the movie just like this person.The country this person lives,movie havent even released and he/she is passing this judgement because that’s hate.I am not saying he was unbelievably DDL in TWBB level good but he was sure fantastic.Acting within acting is never easy and he effortlessly played a bi-polar insecure failing actor and most of those who have seen OUTIH lauded his performance.I am not saying it is compulsory for him to win because imo this wasnt an Oscar winning type of mega performance especially the bar this guy has for himself adding to the fact this is a comedic performance but yeah he certainly is looking a worthy nominee and about hype factor,OUTIH will have a re-release once award season begins so there is that.

    Current Favourites

    1. Banderas, Pain & Glory
    2. Phoenix, Joker
    3. Pryce, The Two Popes
    4. Driver, Marriage Story
    5. DiCaprio, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

    Strong Possibilities

    1. De Niro, The Irishman
    2. Egerton, Rocketman
    3. Pattinson, The Lighthouse
    4. Kaluuya, Queen & Slim
    5. Norton, Motherless Brooklyn
    6. Driver, The Report

    Banderas has a lot of buzz, and I’ve heard several people say he’ll be a strong contender, so he’s my favourite at the minute.

    Phoenix is a close second – he looks excellent in the trailer and is guaranteed to be good in it, he could be a Malek style win in that Joker will likely be a crowd-pleaser and I think his performance will be popular with audiences.

    Pryce has the potential to win I think – I could see a scenario where he’s the firm favourite, he could also just not be involved at all depending on how Netflix market the film. I think Driver is a good bet for a nod, Leo I think is unlikely to win but very likely to get a nod.

    If the Academy buys into The Lighthouse, buzz I’ve seen on here and heard around suggests Pattinson could be a major player.

    I’ve not seen many of the films I’ve predicted but, just for fun, the list I’m hoping to see is something like:

    1. Pattinson, The Lighthouse
    2. Driver, Marriage Story
    3. Phoenix, Joker
    4. Banderas, Pain & Glory
    5. Kaluuya, Queen & Slim

    Those brave enough to predict The Lighthouse elsewhere should seriously consider Pattinson in this category: ‘Pattinson gives a performance of such audacity and muscle that he recalls Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood.’ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/0/lighthouse-review-film-will-make-head-soul-ring/ ‘Forget Batman: Robert Pattinson proves himself once more to be a fearless character actor who brings a layered understanding to Winslow and does not hold back when the shit almost literally hits the fan.’ https://cine-vue.com/2019/05/cannes-2019-the-lighthouse-review.html ‘Pattinson spends the first half sulking around, his eyes darting every which way as he attempts to make sense of his dreary surroundings. But when the material calls for him to unleash his fury, his eyes bulge and his body quakes in a pure show of physical intensity. It’s the sort of showboating the actor tends to avoid, but this histrionic material gives him the ideal excuse to lash out, and with winning results.’ https://www.indiewire.com/2019/05/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-cannes-2019-1202142861/ ‘[…] when [Pattinson] spits out a speech about how sick he is of listening to the old man, it’s the most ferocious acting of Pattinson’s career […] As the movie goes on, his eyes begin to burn in their sockets.’ https://variety.com/2019/film/reviews/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson-willem-dafoe-1203220127/ ‘Pattinson portrays with deep seeded frustration below the surface until he slowly reaches a passionate roar. The 33-year-old actor has simply never been this raw on screen before. There are moments where Pattinson is so transformative it’s jarring. You simply never thought he had it in him.’ http://collider.com/the-lighthouse-review-robert-pattinson/

     

    Next year it could be between Pattinson and Phoenix. I’m excited!

    I’m not sure I would go so far as to say that DiCaprio deserves a Razzie, though I would not give him the Oscar, either.

    If anything deserves a Razzie, it’s that damn acronym. OUATIH?? Gross and offensive.

    My guesses thus far:
    1)DiCaprio, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
    2)Hanks, It’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood BUT if Hanks goes supporting I am going with Zac Efron, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
    3)Pitt, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    4)De Niro, The Irishman
    5)Driver, Marriage Story or Driver, The Report

    I like Dicaprio a lot, but he did nothing exceptional in OUATIH and consequently, he will win nothing.

    It really is time for Joaquin Phoenix to clench his long overdue Oscar. I’d also love to see Adam Sandler put up a good fight for Uncut Gems and Robert Pattinson finally score a nom.

    Could win Lead Actor-Comedy but yes no chance of Lead Oscar

    the win here is between Driver and Phoenix, with Pryce being an unknown possibility. I don’t see any of the other contenders being win-competitive

    Driver winning on his 2nd nomination would make sense but neither of his roles (The Report, Marriage Story) seem flashy enough to me. So, we’ll see.

    I mean it definitely won’t be Winston Churchill/Freddy Mercury level flashy, but I expect Marriage Story will give a lot of emotional material to work with. He’s an indie darling that’s headlining Star Wars and two awards-season movies, he’s got a banner year and it feels like it’s his time. I’m also betting on Marriage Story having a similar reception/awards trajectory as Manchester by the Sea, thus I’m betting on it taking actor and screenplay.
