    Something interesting I noticed:

    Youngest performer last year in each longlist
    Best Actress: Bukky Bakray
    Nomniated: yes

    Best Actor: Adarash Gourav
    Nominated: yes

    Best Supporting Actress: Helena Zengel
    Nominated: no

    Best Supporting Actor: Alan Kim
    Nominated: yes

    This year, the youngest performers in each category are Emilia Jones (there’s less than a year between her and Zegler), Cooper Hoffman, Anya Taylor-Joy and Woody Norman. I’m a bit hesitant to predict Anya because of the reception her film got and she’s not really an unknown like the nominees were last year. However, I think I will predict the other three.

    Johnny Depp is a wifebeater.

    I don’t think Cooper Hoffman happens here. Whilst Licorice Pizza strikes me as something that could do decently with a jury there doesn’t really seem to be much passion behind his performance. He may be a newcomer but so was Helena Zengel last year and she had a performance that had more standout notices.

    I do agree about Jones and Norman though. I have the latter in my predictions.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Doing both Zegler and Norman atm. While I wasn’t looking at it statistically, I did think diversity in terms of age is something the juries keep in mind.

    Who do you think will get Best Supporting Actor nomination? I have Smith-McPhee and Kotsur (top 2) and Ciarán Hinds, Woody Norman, Mike Faist and David Alvarez as jury picks.

    In particular, do you think that the jury will pick Alvarez for diversity over someone else?

    I don’t think Kotsur was top2 when Marlee Matlin couldn’t even crack the Supporting Actress longlist. I think Ciaran was to2 with Kodi. Then I have Troy Kotsur, Mike Faist, Benicio Del Toro and Woody Norman as jury picks.

    What I think really helps the West Side Story boys here is that whilst their film isn’t exactly something I can imagine a jury going over the top for, both Alvarez and Faist are essentially newcomers with showy performances.

    I don’t think I’d even have considered either of them in a field like last year’s but considering how eight of their competitors for the nomination in this category are Hollywood stars with cameo performances or mixed received performances in big studio films and failed Oscar baits… I think the chances of at least one of them making it in with a jury are looking quite strong at the moment.

    Top2 at BAFTA is obviously Smit-McPhee and Hinds. As for the WSS boys I don’t think both of them are getting in but with the jury I would bet on Alvarez I guess.

    I need to watch West Side Story, to have a better opinion on Alvarez. Cause, right now, I have no idea what to do with him. Especially when Faist is the one sucking up all the acclaim and buzz of the suporting guys.

    My instinct is like ‘go with Faist’ but at the same time…that JURY. So I don’t know either.

    Just seen that Critics Choice have put themselves on the same day as this. Really hope all the nominated talent picks this instead as a big fuck you because honestly how ridiculous.

    I think top 2 is pretty obvious in Actor and the supporting categories but what do you think about Actress. Colman and… ?

    They really liked HoG could be Gaga. I don’t follow the british film industry closely and I only know her from TV but could Joanna Scanlan be number 2?

    I don’t think Supporting Actress is that obvious tbh. And the second Actress in the top2 will only be known on nominations day.

    I thought Alvarez was just as good as Faist.

    I feel like the Jude Hill snub confirms DeBose and Dunst are the top 2 for supporting actress.

    Johnny Depp is a wifebeater.
