    I think Samuel L. Jackson would benefit greatly from an overdue narrative if he could get a good role to campaign from.

    I’d also be interested to see how the Academy would take Dwayne Johnson if he were to land a baity role and perform great in it.

    I could see him gaining some traction (& being good) in a mentor / teacher role. Something similar to Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting

    I agree with SLJ, but I struggle to see Johnson getting far in the awards conversation. Granted, I think he’s a talented and entertaining actor, but I think he’s too associated with with generic blockbusters and voters will hold that against him.

    I don’t disagree.

    Maybe in Tarantino’s “last” film? That could be a perfect storm for SLJ, and the Academy likes to reward his films in supporting actor.

    Also, I watched “Jackie Brown” for the umpteenth time last night. He was electric from start to finish.

    Dwayne Johnson’s first serious awards worthy role would go down like Sandler’s – good for you but your opus doesn’t scream Oscar (which is what secret AMPAS voters said about Adam). So it’s really that both would have to forfeit their comfort zone easy money and suck it up for couple of years a la McConaissance. It’s doable but wouldn’t happen on the first try unless it’s some uber baity undeniable role a la Lincoln and they knock it out of park.

    SLJ would win on his second try cause he has industry cred and lots of influential friends to back up his considerable talent.

    I’m rooting for all of them.

    I think Kidman second will happen eventually.

    SLJ could easily win with the right performance. I feel like only Tarantino could give him that performance though, and he has just 1 film left.

    Johnson’s best hope is an Oscar nom. I just don’t feel like he can win after starting in so many bad/mediocre movies. It’ll be like Eddie Murphy all over again if he does get nominated.

    Academy-Award winners:

    Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

    Joker: Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix

    Jojo Rabbit: Best Adapted Screenplay
