    Best way to predict Lead Actor Oscar is to see who can and cannot win Best Actor in Drama at Globes.

    Right now there are 3 names who can win it and they are
    -Joaquin Phoenix
    -Adam Driver
    -Antonio Banderas

    The winner at Oscars will be out from these 3 actors.

    I’m really looking forward to seeing them too. I wasn’t really into Star Wars, actually my introduction to Adam, was his performance in Paterson and since then, I’ve seen his entire filmography. My favourite role of his is in Hungry Hearts.

    I was completely overwhelmed by his performance in Hungry Hearts. That scene in the doctor’s office blew me away. I mean, he didn’t do trembly lips or watery eyes, but you could literally see/feel his heart breaking, the guilt and pain he was going through. It was just breathtaking.

    I’ve been a SW fan my whole life practically, but I adored The Last Jedi and the writing of his Kylo Ren in that film paired w/his performance not only slipped me into obsessive state with SW, but made me an uber-fan of his. I hadn’t seen him in anything (well, I had watched Lincoln) prior to that. But since, yeah, I’ve watched literally EVERYTHING he’s done.

    However, Joker is already a HUGE hit. That will help him win the Golden Globe, which is the most populist awards (like when Malek and Bohemian Rhapsody won). And the Golden globe for Best actor drama tells the Oscar who is gonna win best actor.

    The Globes doesn’t necessarily predict who will win the Oscar. All the precursors count. And, you can’t compare a mainstream box office type of film with a small budget indie type of film. And on that note, MS is not your normal indie type of film. It may not be big in theaters, but it will be streaming on Netflix, and be much more accessible than Roma (a black and white Foreign Language film) and The Irishman (a nearly 3 hour long drama). MS has an average running time, is a dramedy and stars two actors who have starred in the two largest franchises on the planet right now.

    Best way to predict Lead Actor Oscar is to see who can and cannot win Best Actor in Drama at Globes. Right now there are 3 names who can win it and they are -Joaquin Phoenix -Adam Driver -Antonio Banderas The winner at Oscars will be out from these 3 actors.

    Oh, I agree that those are the three front-runners at this point. But I don’t think that the Globes is the only key. It’s all the precursors with the Globes being a big indicator. (But, I don’t think we can count out Leo, though.)

    I’m sorry that I have exquisite taste, an ear for an excellent script, an eye for brilliant direction, a keen sense for wonderful characterization and the ability to see when a writer/director who is also a fan is able to take that love and use it to take the established reins of a story and infuse it with heart and creativity, subverting expectations in the best way possible while staying true to the essence of the creator.

    Throwing Luke Skywalker and his entire characterization under a bus is exquisite and creative storytelling to you? Lol.

    Adam Driver is winning this. Y’all are hyping Joaquin way too much.

    Three previous nominations. Regarded as one of the best of our time. Popular movie. Front and center of the one man show. Transformative performance with an illness. How are we hyping Joaquin too much?

    Hah! Luke has the second best character arc in the entire movie. But, this isn’t the thread to go into it, and two years later, I’m not going to try and change someone else’s mind. You have your opinion, I have mine. Have a nice day.

    Darlings, this category is already locked. Joke is SWEEPING for that disgusting movie. I think he was so over the top and Clownery was horrendous, but Nose isn’t going to upset for a movie about a divorce. Not against Joke at least. We are not in the 70s anymore, dear citizens.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    Joker is absolutely destroying BOXOFFICE.

    It is getting BP nomination now for sure.

    Joaquin’s performance is universally acclaimed by both critics and audiences.

    Oh My God,Joaquin really coming close to a sweep.

    He is ticking all the boxes as of now.

    I do think that the performance merits repeat viewings.

    Seen 3 times already at IMAX.

    The more I see Phoenix,the more I realise how perfect he was.

    Just saw Joker. Phoenix was exceptional. He’d be a very deserving winner. I’ll have to see more contenders before I choose him as my horse in this race, but even if I find another performance I prefer, I can’t imagine being upset over Joaquin taking the Oscar. Absolutely wonderful work (though no one will ever top Ledger).
