    This category is so weak that A24 might as well push Ke Huy Quan as Lead (Not that they would)

    If someone at A24 is foolish enough to do that, they deserve to get sent to the everything bagel. Quan has a giftwrapped narrative for the Supporting category.

    So does Michelle Williams

    It’d be nice if the Supporting winners didn’t already feel locked in August.

    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.

    Mads or Tahar Rahim and it would have been the perfect line-up. Even so it’s one of the best set of nominees this category had in a long time.

    Especially when they already have Fraser, and to a lesser extent, Pope and Mescal competing in Lead.

    Is Mescal really in this? I feel A24 is dropping the ball with Aftersun given how open this category is.

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

    The Chadwick erasure on here is…telling.

    Telling of what? There’s two POC in there. Chadwick deserved his nom but he wasn’t among my favorite performances from that category. Still a legendary year with three POC nominated, two of which made history (Yeun as the first Asian American and Ahmed as the first Muslim).

    Probably not but I think he’s still a contender for right now. The jury at BAFTA will ate up his and Corio’s performances and don’t think he can counted out entirely for the Globe yet.

    Do they even have a US release date scheduled yet? Mubi are handling its international distribution (theatrical mid November) so one would imagine A24 would want a similar time frame.

    And only taking it to NYFF seems like a misstep, wasn’t it one of the most liked audiences films at Cannes this year? TIFF and/or Telluride would’ve been great additional platforms for it.

    What caused the sudden surge for Bill Nighy in the odds? He was like 23rd a week ago and is now top 5.

    Don’t know for sure— he’s currently 6th in GD combined odds— and I don’t think he’s all THAT influential, but I was struck that in his updated Variety Awards Circuit predictions column, Clayton Davis listed him at 3 behind only Jackson and Fraser.

    The film currently has a great rotten tomatoes score, so enough critics have seen it. They reckon Nighy is top notch in it, I suppose that’s why the sudden surge.

    Why are you reporting this post? (optional):
    Not now
