    Honestly, just take out Denzel and I’m fine with Peter, Andrew, Brad or Dicaprio getting in. Denzel has been nominated for random roles and  has too many nominations. Freaking for another Shakespeare nomination. Meh. And yet, the Academy loves him.

    At this point I think Garfield is either top 3 or gets snubbed completely.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    Benedict is fantastic in TPOTD and I liked him even more the second time watching it through. But Kodi Smit-McPhee’s performance still makes the movie for me. I’m actually shocked at myself that I prefer Andrew somehow.

    Andrew is great but Benedict is phenomenal to me. So who will win is Will but the one who should win is Benedict.

    Yeah I don’t think Will is as obvious a winner as people are making it out to be. Safe for a nom but where is the passion for him and the movie?

    FYC:

    Best Picture: C'mon C'mon
    Director: Jane Campion
    Actor: Joaquin Phoenix (C'mon C'mon), Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick... Boom!)
    Supporting Actress: Gaby Hoffman (C'mon C'mon), Ann Dowd (Mass), Ruth Negga (Passing)
    Supporting Actor: Jason Isaacs (Mass), Robin de Jesús (Tick, Tick... Boom!)

    Why do people keep asking this question? Will Smith won the NBR and King Richard won a lot of festival audience awards over movies like Belfast. King Richard also has an RT audience score of 98% compared to Power of the Dog with 65%.

    There is a real world out there outside of the Gold Derby bubble…

    NBR win doesn’t translate to Oscar win. Last 2 times they matched were Casey Affleck, (16), Forest Whittaker (06). Like I said, it makes him safe for a nomination.

    And winning an audience award at Heartland International Film Festival, or Will’s home turf in Philadelphia isn’t exactly the Golden Lion.

    not saying it won’t do well but we’ve got 2 months till nominations and people are acting like he’s a lock to win.

    NBR win doesn’t translate to Oscar win.

    NYFCC win doesn’t translate to Oscar win either. What else can I point to for passion when industry awards have not even started yet???

    Will’s a big name star in a high-profile movie where general opinion is that he’s on par with the best he’s been. He’s not “overdue” in my book, but his performance is the easiest to rally around in a world where people agree that all three frontrunners are good. Helps that it’s the least niche movie of the three too.

    I don’t think TTB is particularly niche (outside of it being a musical I guess). On Letterboxd King Richard was watched 41k times, TTB 96k. TTB also has more IMDB votes.

    Being a musical makes it niche, and it’s geared towards an audience that already loves musicals so it can come off a little cutesy to a movie snob. If it wasn’t for Garfield, it wouldn’t be touching the Oscar conversation.

    I would have no problem with Will Smith winning for King Richard as I thought it was an award winning performance. My top three actors, of what I’ve seen so far, are Cumberbatch, Smith and Cage (man, did Pig surprise me in a good way. What an interesting film and performance by Cage.

    My best, so far:

    Film - The Power of the Dog
    Actor - Benedict Cumberbatch
    Actress - Tessa Thompson
    Supporting Actor - Kodi Smit-McPhee
    Supporting Actress - Ruth Negga
