    Guys, sorry for the question, I’m a little off on the movie thread, but where does the confidence in Brendan Fraser in The Whale comes from? Asking this because its been a while since I saw his name on any kind of awards prediction. Has there been any screenings for the movie?

    Transformational role + Aronofsky comeback + Lots of goodwill for Fraser who will be having a big comeback between this and Killers of the Flower Moon 

    People are gambling on a Mickey Rourke-like run.

    Oh, okay. Thanks! I didn’t know he also was on KOTFM.

    I’ve been skeptical of The Whale‘s chances for a while, considering it’s prone to either be very polarizing Aronofsky or a clunky stage-bound (that’s the project’s origin) production. A24’s fresh purchase of a strong Best Actor contender in Aftersun (Paul Mescal, shaping up to be a 2022 “It Guy”) at Cannes has only thrown some more fuel on that fire for me.

    Until and unless the category gets completed packed with veterans and past profiled actors, I don’t see how Austin Butler is going to get snubbed. It helps him that he is soon going the be the 1st frontrunner of the season

    Warner Bros. is likely feeling pretty good right now about Butler. We’ll see how the box office responds for this one.

    I’d feel more confident about Austin winning this already if he was Supporting. Yeah, doesn’t make a lot of sense but, there it is.

    I’m not AT ALL saying it is impossible but he’s young for a Best Actor winner.  An age bias in this category does seem to exist. The 5 youngest Best Actor Oscar winners in history are:

    Adrian Brody 29 (The Pianist, 2002)

    Richard Dreyfuss 30 (The Goodbye Girl, 1977)

    Marlon Brando 30 (On The Waterfront, 1954)

    Maximilian Schell 31 (Judgment at Nuremberg, 1961)

    Nicholas Cage 32 (Leaving Las Vegas,  1995)

    He’s 30. By a couple of months, he’d be the second youngest Best Actor winner ever.

    No. He’d be fifth youngest – on Oscar day he’d be 31 and older than Brody, Dreyfuss, Brando and Schell when they won.

    I’ve corrected my post. My original point still stands; he’d be the youngest male lead actor Oscar winner in what— about 20 years, and the second youngest in about 45 years?

    I don’t think Austin will win. He has a lot going against him here.
