    Rylance was my favorite, but Yahya was phenomenal in what little screen time he had. He did incredibly well with the material, and was miles ahead of any other cast member (other than Rylance). I also didn’t think Langella’s role was nearly as vile or hateful as many people are claiming… I mean, yeah, the judge was supposed to be one of the old guard, unfair, bad at his job types (with some possible mental deficiencies), but I didn’t see him as “evil”? Just completely misunderstanding his purview, position, and limits.

    I feel pretty sure Baron Cohen is getting in at populist SAG.

    My ranking of the Chicago 9 –

    1. Rylance

    2. Abdul-Mateen II
    3. Langella
    4. Baron Cohen
    5. Carroll Lynch (who would have thought Mr Jingles?)
    6. Keaton
    7. Redmayne
    8. Strong
    9. Gordon-Levitt

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    Did you watch the movie? Yahya was given too litte material to do anything worth praising.

    Did you sleep through it? Yahya wasn’t given that little to do.

    Is this a joke? It’s a 10 character ensemble, 2 hours long, did you expect them to dedicate a hour each to every character? Yahya left an immense impact on the movie, regardless of how long he was on the screen.

    Y’all have become so accustomed to supporting performances being co-leads & 2nd billed that an actual supporting performance like Abdul-Manteen’s is now considered little screen time.

    The way some y’all describe it you would think his screen time and role size was comparable to Harrison’s, Fitzgerald’s, Sharp’s and Robbins’.

    1. Abdul-Mateen II

    2. Redmayne

    I’m surprised to see Rylance as the most popular on here. He was good but nothing outstanding. Even though Redmayne is my second favorite performance he will probably not be nominated even he is Lindo is superior than him.

    Just finished it. Definitely Mark Rylance stood out the most.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    I re-watched it before writing a review.
    My TOP 5
    #1 – Mark Rylance
    #2 – Sacha Baron Cohen
    #3 – Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
    #4 – John Carroll Lynch
    #5 – Frank Langella (his one-note character started brilliantly, but then he became too “one-note”… I don’t blame Langella, but the character’s real-life one note actions)
    .
    NOTE 1: Eddie Redmayne is the clear lead
    NOTE 2: I didn’t find Jeremy Strong award worthy at all
    NOTE 3: Michael Keaton and Kelvin Harrison Jr.’s cameos were brilliant

    Just watched the film. Rylance and Langella left an indelible impressions. All cast are good, even Keaton in a few scenes was memorable. I expect SAG nominations (maybe win.) But I highly doubt about SBC. He was portraying an American person yet there are times he was pronouncing words in British.

    Only Rylance and Langella were good. But I wouldn’t nominate any of them.
