    I really did not need to be reminded of how robbed Ryan Gosling was for Lars and the Real Girl. One of the greatest performances of the century. Just for freaking Johnny Depp to get nominated.

    What could it be this year?

    C’mon C’mon, Mass or Red Rocket

    I’m starting to think that Pig could be the one as well. Nicolas Cage and the movie are getting a lot of love from regionals and he’s not getting nominated. It’s quite possible that Pig would’ve been nominated in Screenplay if CC hadn’t stopped doing 6 slots for no reason this year. The writers branch could find a way to recognize the movie a la Nightcrawler, First Reformed, Lars and the Real Girl, 20th Century Women, Logan all had performances with Oscar buzz.

    Mike Mills for C’mon C’mon

    Fran Kranz for Mass

    Rebecca Hall for Passing

    Pedro Almodovar for Parallel Mothers

    I am not including any of the foreign films that will likely be nominated for Foreign Film (Drive My Car, The Hand of God, A Hero, The Worst Person in the World) unless any of them miss that category and get a writing nomination only.

    I doubt it would happen but Simon Baker and his co-writer would be great for Red Rocket too. (Even better though: Simon Rex getting nominated for Best Actor!)
