    Yup, at the time of writing it, it was a toss-up between Farrell and Driver, but now that the trailer for Banshees is out, I’ll probably put Driver in my top five. Nighy is also very tempting.

    Yeah I switched him out in favor of Christian Bale in ‘Amsterdam’ or ‘The Pale Blue Eye’.

    This feels like something that could take off if good. It’s A24 so think they’ll focus on a Fraser win but would love a campaign for them just to get Pope nominated

    I don’t know what it will mean for Song Kang-Ho but I don’t think he has the history/support Penelope had to sail through despite the film not being submitted for Foreign Language. (Parallel Mothers)

    Bill Nighy this year feels less like Willem Dafoe for At Eternity’s Gate and more like Ian McKellen for Mr. Holmes or Michael Caine for Youth .

    I know he’s overdue for his first nomination, but I don’t see it happening for Living.

    I’ve Seen Elvis last night and I didn’t expect to like this that much ! It’s far for perfect (Tom Hanks awkward presence at times, the editing in the first part) but it’s moving and enjoyable ! Austin Butler deserves to be nominated, and maybe to win! He’s phenomenal, probably the best incarnation I have seen in a musical biopic with Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison in The Doors ! 🥰 👏

    Austin Butler is very lucky that it’s a weak field & so many contenders dropped out.

    I bet Warner Bros have developed a campaign strategy to ensure Elvis happens in picture for the statistical advantage it would give Butler.

    I think it’s going to come down to Austin vs. Brendan for their transformative performances. I’m going with Butler because it’s a biopic and you know how much the Academy loves those films but would be more than happy for Brendan coz I grew up on his movies.

    Jackman has to split more screentime with his co-star so he’s third on my predictions.

    Elvis is atrocious but considering what won last time I wouldn’t be surprised if it makes Picture.

    This race already looks tragic. The category really peaked when we had this legendary trio.

    Darling, Hot McCormack held his own against Horny Thompson in Good Luck To You, Leo Grande. It’s a great performance, vulnerable, charming, and hot heartbreaking.

    This category is absolutely in need of fresh new faces, his inclusion, though very unlikely, would be a very inspiring pick by the SlapShow.

    FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

    Michelle Yeoh, Everything Everywhere All At Once
    Tang Wei, Decision To Leave
    Rebecca Hall, Resurrection

    James Hong & Jamie Lee Curtis, Everything Everywhere All At Once

    If only Gary Oldman’s subpar work in “Monk” was replaced by Mads Mikkelsen from “Another Round”, we would have had a perfect line-up. It’s also curious how Chadwick Boseman’s win was supposed to be a foregone conclusion and yet in retrospect everybody agrees on Hopkins. No wonder – it’s a tour de force.
