    It’s kinda hilarious and sad at the same time that Pacino is committing category fraud this year when he was so open about hating it in the seventies. He was so offended by being nominated in supporting for The Godfather he didn’t attend the ceremony. How people change… for worse.

    I’ve literally never heard anyone say he’s a lead in The Irishman.

    People got used so much to category fraud they just don’t fucking care anymore. Last night Deadline mentioned him along with Pitt, Dafoe, Hopkins and others as this year’s category frauds. Last night I watched the newest Papillon and was thinking that people here would fraud Malek immediately into supporting because he’s been missing some parts of the movie when clearly he’s a co-lead. People like Abraham in Amadeus would be frauded too these days. It’s absolutely disgusting how much corrupt people are these days.

    Given the fact that literally every other source seems to think he’s supporting, I’m just gonna assume he’s in the correct category until I see the film.

    I saw the film last week during the Festival Lumière in France (and god I loved it, mostly for its last thirty minutes which broke my heart) and I can affirm that De Niro is the clear and sole lead. He’s the narrator and all the story is told from his point of view.

    And I also have to admit that I thought Pacino gave the weakest performance among De Niro and Pesci. His performance is only a festival of punchline. Pesci is a much more interesting character.

    Do you consider De Niro as lock for a nomination?

    I’m pretty sure if one of Amadeus’ leads got put into supporting, it’d be Hulce.

    It’s a really strong performance and I hope he’s gonna be nominated.
    I don’t consider him as lock given the number of plausible possibilites in this category but he definitely has a better chance than Di Caprio or Pryce in my opinion.

    My prediciton :

    1 – Phoenix
    2 – Driver
    3 – De Niro
    4 – Pryce
    5 – DiCaprio

    He is definitely getting ahead of DiCaprio and Pryce then.

    It’d be neither, even today. Sometimes there is no conceivable excuse, nothing to latch onto that could convince anyone that one of a pair of lead actors is supporting. The movie is called Amadeus yet it is somehow more about Salieri. But fudging the actor playing Mozart into supporting would confuse many, and possibly backfire.

    Meh, my category fraud radar is about as sensitive as yours and I don’t have a problem with Pacino in supporting. He’s entirely absent for approximately the first 45 minutes and the last half-hour, and those are conservative estimates. He has more screentime than lead actors in other movies because The Irishman is so long, but in terms of percentage and narrative I consider his role to be a large supporting one. If the movie was solely from his first appearance to his last he’d be a co-lead, sure, but overall definitely not.

    I don’t yet buy that any of the IRISHMAN men are getting in.

    Really? I thought Pacino was a shoo-in?

    It looks like I’m about the only one who sees Pitt’ s part as Supporting.
    So, come ahead and accuse me of endorsing cheaters.

    Thank you. You I can trust. And only you. When I asked last year if Chalamet was leading or supporting in Beautiful Boy those bitches here assured me he was supporting. Then I saw that pos, I mean movie, and he was a clear co-lead. When it comes to category placement I do not trust GD posters anymore.

    Since when have you trusted GDers?
    lol

    He’s a clear co-lead. There’s no way to consider him supporting. If you endorse cheaters good for you. I’m not that kind of person. Never was. Never will. And if you wanna start a fight join MMA tournament. I’m not in a mood for that kind of shit.

    I get what you’re saying. Category fraud pisses me off too. AKA Alicia Vikander winning SA for The Danish Girl. But until the Academy decides on a time limit for which the actor/actress is in a film to separate SA from actor/actress, there’s nothing we can really do about it. I do know Matt Damon and Christian Bale are both submitting themselves as leads for Ford vs Ferrari which is a start.
