    A movie centered around 2 people is not going to voluntarily put themselves both in the same category in any way shape of form.

    Why not? They used to. In fact a Lead performance going Supporting used to be seen as a demotion and many top stars refused to do it.

    Forcing one Lead into Supporting is a relatively modern trend that has now grown to epidemic proportions in a totally calculated attempt to get more nominations. There is no doubt that today either Sarandon or Davis would be pushed Supporting for Thelma & Louise.

    It’s a disgraceful practice which the Academy should be doing there utmost to prohibit.

    Well I already saw the movie and can say Armie being supporting isn’t category fraud lol. The movie expands stuhlberg’s role and dials down Armie’s, but the lead is Timothee and only Timothee.

    Dafoe and Melissa leo being in supporting is a bigger fraud than Armie lol, if u want to call it fraud.

    Literally everything about this post is bollocks.

    It’s quite possible for a film to have more than one Lead. Just because it’s told from Chalamet’s perspective it doesn’t mean anyone else is immediately supporting him. It’s their story. Hammer’s screen time is almost the same and far in excess of Stulbarg’s who only has one scene of note. Trying to shoe horn them in the same category is ridiculous.

    As for Leo and Dafoe, WTF are you on about??? They are the very definition of Supporting roles. Neither film tells their stories. Both films have very obvious Lead characters who stories we follow from beginning to end. Have you actually seen either?

    Best Actor is the weakest it’s been in years

    No way this year will be weaker than 2015.

    Unless Hanks, DDL and Jackman come along to save the day it’s going to be the weakest in living memory. Currently it’s an absolute embarrassment.

    Chalamet alone makes it better than 2015, and you talk about Hanks, DDL, and Jackman as if we should expect them all to give horrible performances. There’s also Oldman, and Gyllenhaal. I think Franco and Cranston have potential, then there’s some real outside shots like Phoenix and Pattinson. I agree it’s weak but you’re exaggerating a lot.

    Franco will only get a Globe nod while Cranston can stay the fuck away. Either way, Oldman is winning this for being a traditional ham.

    Why don’t you like Cranston?

    Ugh, you’re probably right. I still have hope his previous history with Oscars and awards in general will be indicative of what’s to come.

    His previous dealings with the Oscars are exactly why hes gonna win. Its just a fact at this point. He has the narrative, the role and the movie.

    Cranston’s acting is like Thanksgiving turkey vomit. All the meat is there and yet there’s no seasoning or there’s too fuckin much.

    according to their FYC, they’re pushing Cranston to supporting and Carrell to lead

    He can still be non-existent in this season.

    I’m already dreading the uproar when CMBYN underperforms in nominations and only wins best adapted screenplay and/or best cinematography. I really don’t think the so-called category fraud will be relevant at all, I’m pretty sure established actors are going to give the cast of CMBYN quite a run.

    What the fuck makes you so sure that will happen, that you’re going to use quantifying adverbs like “when”? You don’t know what will happen, chill the fuck out.

    If anything, I think category fraud won’t be much of a problem for the actors in terms of industry support, but the real problem is with the Academy. It all comes down to who is more acclaimed to get a lone lead nod for the film.

    It is possible, but usually people are going to narrow it down to one identifiable, that’s why Chalamet has a much greater chance than Armie getting in.
