    I don’t see a Rami Malek path for Austin Butler, but a nomination is certainly possible, because this field is not exactly overflowing with contenders. The leads in “Bardo” and “Babylon” are two unknown Mexican actors who aren’t playing Elvis and a few Oscar movies have female leads only (“Women Talking”, “She Said”, “Poor Things” and “Everything Everywhere All At Once”).

    women talking they all supporting , it’s an ensemble movie i think

    Either way, there are no male leads in the movie.

    Clearly, Austin Butler is coming – this is no Rocketman, which came far too soon after BoRhap conquered the world, and Eggsy’s film suffered for it. Elvis, Elvis!!! – he’s in the building.

    Has there been a test screening of My Policeman or something, or is your Styles prediction just a feeling/speculation? Just curious because you’re the first person I’ve seen mention this film in any awards predictions.

    There actually has been a test screening a while back and I believe the reactions were pretty positive, but my prediction here is mainly based on intuition. Personally speaking, I’m actually somewhat surprised Harry Styles isn’t more predicted for My Policeman. I believe all the film has to achieve is generally positive critical acclaim because I’m rather confident fans of Styles will tune in, in droves, to watch the film on Amazon. Additionally, the screenplay is done by Ron Nyswaner, who is an Oscar nominee for his screenplay for Philadelphia, a movie that won Tom Hanks his first Oscar. It also stars Emma Corrin, a recent Emmy nominee for The Crown. If Harry Styles is even remotely raved, I can foresee audiences (and eventually, pundits) getting behind him with a “Wow, who knew he could act this well? He should receive something for this!” narrative. Styles is an enormously popular celebrity and with that comes the benefit of awards publicity if he gives a good performance in a prestige project. It also helps that his character is pretty meaty, too (I believe he plays a gay policeman hiding his sexuality from his wife).

    TLDR; I’m not ultimately predicting Styles to make the final five, but I am seeing a path for him due to his star power, baity character, and the pedigree and distributor behind the film.

    and distributor behind the film.

    Amazon last season got 3 filler acting noms for past winners and nothing else of note, while its rival streamers tangled for BP.

    Amazon this season purchased five contenders in one go with the MGM buy, two of which star past nominees Timothee Chalamet and Viggo Mortensen – the latter of whom leads a potential BP nominee.

    Nothing on Amazon’s own slate this year so far indicates it is planning a full-throated awards season like the last one. It has no Rustin, no Killers of the Flower Moon, no Bardo, no Cha Cha Real Smooth.

    No Viggo predix. Do you think his film is just too weird? But..they do admire Cronenberg.

    ETA Are we certain he’s supporting?

    I think Diego Calva is the lead of Babylon and Pitt is Supporting, and Leo is an absolute lock even if he’s probably not coming close to a win

    1- Colman Domingo – Rustin
    2- Colin Firth – Empire of Light
    3- Hugh Jackman – The Son
    4- Leonardo DiCaprio – Killers of the Flower Moon
    5- Michael Fassbender – Next Goal Wins

    I forgot to add my note about Killers of the Flower Moon‘s exclusion from my predictions above. Sorry about that!

    I think Diego Luna is the lead of Babylon and Pitt is Supporting

    I haven’t read the script so you could be on to something. I just assumed Pitt and Robbie were co-leads as most of the trades have dubbed them as such following the CinemaCon preview.

    reshuffle, prompted by A24’s purchase of Aftersun, presuming it is added to the studio’s 2022 release slate:

    1. Hugh Jackman, The Son
    2. Leonardo DiCaprio, Killers of the Flower Moon*
    3. Austin Butler, Elvis
    4. Daniel Giménez Cacho, Bardo

    I thought Viggo was supporting and Cronenberg can some times be too out there for the Academy. Viggo may have a stronger chance for the movie Thirteen Lives

    Yes, i’m elevating Mortensen for Thirteen Lives in my predix as i figure he’ll catch some added momentum from Crimes of the Future.
