Annette is pretty much confirmed for Cannes 2021 so will probably come out in the fall of next year. Which means that depending on when Yankee Comandante comes out, Adam Driver could have three big baity roles for 2022 season (Annette, Yankee, The Last Duel)August 2, 2020 at 4:11 am #1203621738
I think Yankee will come out a year later, so:
2022: Best Actor contender (Annette), Best Supporting Actor contender (The Last Duel)
2023: Best Actor contender (Yankee Comandante)
I think he will be nominated for Annette and Yankee Comandante, and he could possibly win for the latter.August 2, 2020 at 4:25 am #1203621744

Also entirely possible! I suppose Comandante could be a lengthy production process so it may fall that way.
Personally I’d prefer that as I think if both came out the same year he’d be more likely to get in for Comandante, but I want to see Leos Carax get that Academy recognition. If he gets in for either of course, 2022 is going to be stacked so nothing is guaranteed for any movie.August 2, 2020 at 11:04 am #1203622279
I’ll personally be very interested to see who are the biggest contenders in Trial of the Chicago Seven are. There’s a lot of great actors there with roles that sound pretty meaty. I’m pretty sure that they’ll end up submitting someone as lead just because it’ll be best for their chances overall. Also, as long as Sorkin delivers on the quality, which he usually does, I expect this film to be big, as it feels very timely what with the focus on protests, abuse of power, and the fact that one of the main characters is a black man dealing with extreme prejudice.
I think the five highest contenders for a Supporting Actor role (assuming everyone [except maybe Redmayne] goes Supporting) would be Sacha Baron Cohen, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Mark Rylance, Jeremy Strong and/or Frank Langella. I currently have both Cohen and Absul-Mateen in my predictions but could easily see a lot of other people from that cast getting momentum.August 2, 2020 at 12:27 pm #1203622340

Adam Driver the greatest actor of his generation, as Scorsese said.August 2, 2020 at 2:52 pm #1203622510This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.August 2, 2020 at 5:44 pm #1203622678
The only cast member of The Trial of the Chicago 7 I am somewhat confident predicting if his role is big enough is Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and think he could be competitive for the supporting actor win. Bobby Seale’s story is particularly relevant because of how he dealt with racism and how he was treated.
With the other actors, the nominations and category placement are up in the air but I think Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne might go lead and the rest supporting.
Also, it probably won’t happen but there’s a chance that two performances of Fred Hampton get nominated this year. Kelvin Harrison Jr’s in The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Daniel Kaluuya’s in Judas and the Black Messiah.August 2, 2020 at 6:01 pm #1203622688
Yahya coming for the Emmy and the Oscar in the space of a few months we love to see it.

It’s crazy how big Yahya is getting. In those first several episodes of Watchmen, he was little more than window dressing, but the man’s got chops, and I’d love to see him pick up some more award buzz this year. And I didn’t even know he was playing Candyman. I guess Jordan Peele saw something in him for his small role in Us.
Anyway, from what I saw about Trial of the Chicago Seven, it seems like Baron Cohen, Redmayne, Yahya, Strong, and Langella have the best roles. Might want to look out for Keaton and Rylance as well, I think Sorkin singles them out alongside those others. I feel like we can definitely see two supporting men get in for this one.August 3, 2020 at 8:28 am #1203623447
I think if the movie is received pretty well, MAYBE only Baron Cohen and Redmayne get in Supporting, the rest won’t make the cut.August 3, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203623498

I think at least one of them is going lead. It looks like they could have several contenders, and they’ll likely want to spread out their chances.August 3, 2020 at 2:42 pm #1203624889
Netflix is trying to buy The Woman In the Window. But it’s not clear if Netflix has plans to release it this year.

I think Daniel Kaluuya is a real strong contender for supporting actor this year and maybe even end up pulling out the win. In his film ‘Judas and the Black Messiah’, he will be playing Fred Hampton who was the leader of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panther Party, and deputy chairman of the national BPP. Based on the synopsis though, I think Lakeith Stanfield will be the lead because the film will take a look at the rise and demise of Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya) through the eyes of William O’neal (Lakeith Stanfield). This film will be directed by Shaka King and produced by Ryan Coogler. Keep this on your radars people!
