    His performance requires you to be invested in his looks for it to be affective.

    Gary Oldman will be winning a lifetime achievement award cause The Darkest Hour was horrible. Bored outta my mind.

    Gotta be Willem Dafoe for me. Really critics? This is the only supporting male performance worthy of winning?

    I’m watching this before the Globes tonight, hopefully I won’t be as disappointed as I was with The Darkest Hour.

    Mary J Blige (of everyone in Mudbound, why is she being singled out?!)
    Laurie Metcalf (even though I love her, doesn’t feel like a frontrunner performance)

    booo! Dafoe was great and Hammer was very good, though I want Stuhlbarg to happen over him.

    I found Dafoe and Rockwell to be decent in their roles, with Rockwell edging out Dafoe a bit.

    I haven’t seen The Shape of Water or Call Me By Your Name yet, but I have a feeling that I’ll prefer Stuhlbarg and Jenkins over our two frontrunners.

    Stuhlbarg and Jenkins are more deserving of “career wins” over Dafoe and Rockwell, anyways.

    Umm Stuhlbarg hasn’t really done a ton of memorable film work to be considered for a career win lol.

    This.

    Stuhlbarg was passable in Call Me By Your Name, forgettable in Shape Of Water, and worth an unlisted cameo at best in The Post – but everyone will likely name check him just because he was cast in three big academy films this year, regardless of what he actually committed to film.

    For all the flack Hammer gets about being pretty I found him to more or less encapsulate and expand on Aciman’s book version of Oliver who is a sketch lined character at best. Oliver is supposed to be mysterious and a masculine steel trap you can’t get anything from. Hammer managed to turn that narrative ploy into a flesh and blood human being even if at a glance, and committed to quite choices that symbolized vulnerability, longing and regret (or at least tried to). He fulfilled what the narrative gave him and then some.

    Sthulburg has one speech that everyone on the queer spectrum longs to hear, but no one ever said to them and everyone in the critics circle loses their minds and pushes him to the front and center. It’s almost meme-able. But what does one expect from the Golden Veteran Watch Actor category.

    Dafoe did absolutely nothing awards worthy. He was just there. He’s got no arch, nothing.

    Thank you for articulating so succinctly my absolute abhorrence of Three Billboards.
