    Anthony Hopkins has what, like 16 minutes with of screentime in The Silence of the Lambs, but based on history you just assume he’s the lead actor.

    I just watched Creed, Sylvester has a ton of screentime, one could argue that Michael and Sylvester are the leads, but not one person is calling for that because Rocky is SUPPORTING Creed.

    Anyone that thinks Paul Dano is a supporting actor in Love and Mercy is foolish. HIS FACE IS EVEN ON THE POSTER NOT CUSACK’S 

    Ummm…(I’d post pictures to prove you wrong, but we can’t add pictures for some reason)

    How about Supporting Actor winner George Clooney in Syriana? His face is pretty much the only thing on the poster

    Or maybe Supporting Actor nominee Ben Kingsley, whose face is roughly 70% bigger than his co-stars on the poster for Sexy Beast?

    Or perhaps Supporting Actor nominee Willem Dafoe, whose face took up 90% of the promotional material for Shadow of the Vampire

    There are many other examples, but these are just some that come to mind off the top of my head.

    Honestly, Dano was borderline lead, and Cusack was borderline supporting. Neither were very good either, so its a moot point. Dano won’t show up anyway, so we shouldn’t worry too much about where he is place.

    Just saw “The Revenant” and though that it was very medicore movie. It was way overlong and its slow tone didnt help. There was not much to Dicaprios performance it was very physichal and i imagine very hard to film but i wasnt moved by it. Tom Hardy was standout for me, though i wouldnt really call him nomination worthy. Cinematography was great though.

    This has by far been the hardest category to predict this year – anyone who gets all five right I will wonder if they have more than one account on here (; I believe there are still a whopping FIFTEEN actors who have a shot at a nomination:

    Christian Bale, The Big Short
    Steve Carell, The Big Short
    Emory Cohen, Brooklyn
    Jeff Daniels, Steve Jobs
    Paul Dano, Love & Mercy
    Idris Elba, Beasts Of No Nation
    Walton Goggins, The Hateful Eight
    Tom Hardy, The Revenant
    Michael Keaton, Spotlight
    Harvey Keitel, Youth
    Mark Ruffalo, Spotlight
    Mark Rylance, Bridge Of Spies
    Michael Shannon, 99 Homes
    Sylvester Stallone, Creed
    Jacob Tremblay, Room

    I am predicting: Bale, Cohen, Ruffalo, Rylance, Stallone, and Tremblay could be moved to Best Actor – if not, then sadly I think Ruffalo will be snubbed ):

    My picks: Bale, Cohen, Daniels, Ruffalo, and Stallone with Tremblay nommed in Lead Actor.

    I haven’t seen Elba’s work; didn’t like Hardy or Keaton all that much – the latter was solid but not Oscar-worthy for me. I thougth Hardy was dreadful.

    Just saw Spotlight. Oh how I want Rufallo to take this. He was just fucking electric. Nobody else comes close this year. The whole movie blew me away. It was the most thoughtful, engaging, heartbreaking and stressful two hours I’ve spent at the movies in a long time. Give it all the awards already.

    Gosh, I hope this is not correct. I was knocked out by Dano. In a role where a lesser actor could have chewed scenery, Dano conveys the terror and loneliness of mental anguish quite believably.

    After strong performances in There Will Be Blood, Little Miss Sunshine, 12 Years a Slave and Prisoners, Dano is due for a nomination.

    Its odd, because I absolutely agree that he is most definitely overdue for a nomination, and I have probably been his biggest fan here on GD since I joined, defending him in everything, but the one time he gets close to a nomination, I don’t like him much – its very bizarre. He was good, but I am not sure I actually found him deserving.

    I have no idea why people continue to bring up Love & Mercy in Oscar conversations.  Paul Dano is ninth at best.

    Well, he may be ninth (I think he’s more 6th – 8th), but he is in a category with 11 potential nominees, so your statement is actually not that contrarian!

    What a strange response.  I have no problem with people discussing movies obviously and maybe I will be lamenting his snub once I see this one too.  I just do not think that he stands much of a chance at an Oscar nomination this year and people (on this board and elsewhere, not necessarily just you or even you at all) keep saying that he does.  I was responding to predictions for him, not opinions of his performance.  Enjoy feeling high and mighty.

    Well, if there is one user who deserves to feel high and mighty, it is OnTheAisle, who is one of the most knowledgable users here, and he’s true. We weren’t talking about predicting him, we were talking about his performance, so that doesn’t matter that you are wondering why people are predicting him, because we weren’t talking about that…

    I was very moved by Harrison Ford as Han Solo and because this is such open field witouth a single lock except maybe Ryalance, does anyone else think that he might sneak in on the wings of Star Wors momentum?

    I think it’s possible, but highly unlikely.
