    This thread is inspired by Sab227’s series on category placement.

    Delroy Lindo is absolutely phenomenal in Da 5 Bloods. He deserves to win.

    However, let’s settle this now: Will Lindo be nominated in lead or supporting?

    Discuss.

    R.I.P Chadwick Boseman

    In Contention:
    Da 5 Bloods | Judas & the Black Messiah | Lovers Rock | Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom | Minari | Monsoon | Nine Days | One Night in Miami | Respect | Soul | The Trial of the Chicago 7 | The U.S. vs Billie Holiday | Without Remorse

    Netflix has Boseman and the Chicago 7 men to push in supporting. Their only real player in lead is Oldman. Also, Lindo’s role still reads more like a leading role to me, so I’m beating on that.

    I can understand why they could campaign him in Supporting but to me he’s Lead.

    Besides, Netflix has enough contenders to fill the supporting category without him. It wouldn’t make sense.

    Lindo is supporting, and that’s where he’ll be campaigned. Because unlike any of the Trial of the Chicago 7 players, whoever gets submitted from Mank (probably Tom Burke), and (RIP) Chadwick Boseman, he actually has a chance to win. Wheras Anthony Hopkins has already won Best Actor.

    Frances McDormand/Kate Hudson – Almost Famous (Both billed before the main lead. Kate being the only one on the poster, u would think shes the main lead without watching the movie)
    Holly Hunter – Thirteen
    Julianne Moore – The Hours ( at least billed before Kidman)
    Penelope Cruz – Vicky Cristina Barcelona
    Christian Bale – The Big Short
    Dev Patel – Lion
    Jeff Bridges – Hell or High Water
    Willem Dafoe – Florida Project (i think?)
    Anthony Hopkins – The Two Popes

    Lindo is not supporting any other actor in the movie. The rest of the cast are supporting him, which makes him the lead and the rest supporting, by definition. He might well become yet another category fraud casualty, but he is the lead.

    I would say he’s Lead. Since I think his performance is one of the best this year so far, I say whichever category gets him the Academy Award works for me.

    I can’t shake the feeling he is going to be in supporting tbh. Should he be lead? Yes and he probably can win in that catagory. Will it be easier for him to get it if its in supporting? HELL YES and in a cakewalk. This kinda reminds me of Reese Witherspoon back in her Oscar year win. Undeniable and could win in either but will probs go for the easier route

    I don’t think so, Hopkins has actor in his bag.

    Oh I saw the ads for that when it was on Broadway. Looked really depressing.

    Hopkins is supposed to be amazing, though.
