    With the last couple of weeks taken into account, my predictions are:

    Christian Bale, The Big Short
    Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation
    Mark Ruffalo, Spotlight
    Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies
    Jacob Tremblay, Room

    Before I get hate from people…yes, I know Tremblay is a huge longshot. But I’m gonna stick with my gut on this one. There is clearly a lot of passion for Brie Larson and, to a lesser extent, Room as a whole, so it puzzles me why there wouldn’t be the same level of support for Tremblay. His SAG nom indicates that he’s definitely still in the race, and I’m just not convinced that any of the other competition in this race is strong enough to get that last spot. In fact, I really think the majority of this race is a toss-up. The only definite, right now, would appear to be Rylance (my predicted winner at the moment). I think Bale and Ruffalo will make it in because of their respective film’s status as a potential Best Picture frontrunner. I was concerned about Elba at the kickoff of the season, but Beasts has had a decent enough showing that I don’t think Elba will be forgotten. For that last slot, I’ve seen Sylvester Stallone, Michael Keaton, Michael Shannon, Tom Hardy, and Paul Dano thrown around, and with Tremblay in that mix as well, there’s really no one that’s had a strong enough awards season for me to say, “They’re probably gonna make the lineup.” Keaton and Hardy just seem like passion picks at this point, and I can make some kind of an argument for Stallone, Shannon, and Dano, but I have just as many reasons not to pick them. But because I loved Room and loved Tremblay’s performance, I’m gonna use that last slot to do some wishful thinking. I’ll be thrilled if I’m right.

    Stallone is making it in. But I’m willing to bet that Tremblay is as well.

    So, I finally saw The Revenant and I not only believe Tom Hardy could be nominated, but I strongly feel he should win. I’m not just saying that as a big Tom Hardy fan. He is win-worthy as the main villain. To me, he was very three-dimensional as he exudes a brooding and tough exterior, yet when you look into his eyes, you see his sly deception as well as his cowardice. Also, the guy had an awesome year with The Revenant and Mad Max, so the guy deserves something.

    Good to hear some positive ink on Tom Hardy !! Ol I read is him being 1
    Dimensional. Totally overshadowed by his costars in either movie.

    Stallone and Creed were never getting in at BAFTA and his buzz picked up only after SAG released their nominations.

    I’ll say it again: he’s getting in. I may eat my words, but I believe it.

    With a Golden Globe and BFCA nomination?

    He is considered one of the worst actors of all time, in a buzz-dead film, with zero support by either the SAG or the BAFTA. He’s done.

    This is hilarious for many reasons including that you harp on Jennifer Lawrence getting a “4th to 5th” spot when she has THE SAME NOMINATIONS. Also, Stallone actually did have support hence his critic wins and constant mentions of him being the standout in the film. No buzz? Are you kidding me? A buzz dead film is Joy. Nobody is raving about that shit. Matthew McConaughey and Bradley Cooper (fucking ew) were considered horrible actors once too, so this argument is not good.

    Jennifer Jason Leigh has a BAFTA nomination in addition to the other two.

    I have Tremblay in Lead which opens up room for Mark Ruffalo in Supporting.

    I really like that BAFTA lineup and think we’ll see the same. Possibly Tremblay as a spoiler but I’m not sure how much support Room has.

    I don’t think Elba is getting nominated, the academy love for Del Toro is just too much, and he was way better than Elba and way more deserving, so was Dano.

    I would be really disappointed and upset if Jacob Tremblay doesn’t get nominated in one of the categories –  He belongs in lead and he should have been campaigned there. I think he would have gotten nominated in that category.

    I’m not convinced enough people have seen Idris Elba’s moive for him to get in.

    Sylvester Stallone is definitely getting in.

    My current predictions are: Emory Cohen, Mark Ruffalo, Mark Rylance, Sylvester Stallone nad Jacob Tremblay. I honestly dont’ have any idea what the final five will actually be! (; Whoever gets all five right deserves a special prize! (I got all five right in this category last year; it wasn’t as competitve last year. There are 15 viable actors contending for those five slots this year).
