    Denzel isn’t in the race at at all. It’s Oldman vs. Chalamet and I’m not giving up on Chalamet’s chances even though they seem slim after last night.   Consider this……….Peter O’Toole gave classic performance after classic performance in his first decade in films. And he only got an honourary Oscar. He was overdue. Where do people get off saying Oldman is overdue? On one hand tell me the classics he’s made. It’s ridiculous. Lithgow’s Churchill was the real thing.

    I really didn’t think Oldman could sweep but if he wins SAG he will.

    If Oldman could triumph at the Globes, he’s easily prevailing here.

    ^^^^ It’s a bit more complex than that. I already knew how strongly actors would respond to Denzel’s performance, so seeing voter/social media confirmation, no matter how small a sample, is useful. Critics have no say in this particular race, so you need to use whatever evidence at hand. It’s not getting brushed aside, as critics awards did. There’s passion behind it. Look at this tweet from the veteran character actor Stephen Tobowlowsky about Denzel’s work in Roman J; Stephen Tobolowsky‏Verified account @Tobolowsky 27 Dec 2017 More We all have favorites. Denzel Washington has been mine for years. He makes bad movies watchable and good movies classics. But Roman J. Israel, Esq. @RomanJIsraelEsq is a performance that is beyond anything I have seen. Courageous. Afraid. Lost. Found. https://twitter.com/Tobolowsky/status/946048850799706113 That’s passion. From an actor (Tobolowsky) who has been in the business for over 40 years. You don’t need to change your vote (let’s keep it real. Gary still has every concievable advantadge and I’m still picking him to win). But I’m working the angles. Denzel is going to be a passion pick for many voters because it’s such an actors performance, even with lack of buzz or critics group support going into SAG.

    Have you seen any other passionate responses for the other potential Best Actor nominees from SAG and Oscars voters similar to Denzel on social media?

    Mainly Gary to be honest, which is why he’s probably winning (the Oscar obviously, but SAG as well). It’s the type of performance actors love and think is hard to pull off like Denzel’s, but Gary actually has buzz and frontrunner status to go with it.

    I’m surprised by the lack of actor passion for Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread (still haven’t seen it. Hoping to this week. So maybe I won’t be surprised when I see it). On social media, DDL is almost entirely a critics/cinephile/PTA fan thing. Usually a DDL performance gets actors a lot more hyped. I know Minnie Driver tweeted about the performances in Phantom Thread….but mainly to basically complain that why aren’t people talking about/awarding Vicky Kreips performance.

    I’ve seen no real actor passion behind Hanks in The Post on social media

    @Teridax

    I think if voters (especially male voters) really like Franco’s performance, the current allegations won’t hurt him. They’d have to get more serious and detailed, and I don’t think the full story will be published in enough time to make a difference (and I wouldn’t be surprised if it got more serious). As I said in another thread, it’s very clear a lot of men in the industry view TimesUp and MeToo to be something close to a witchhunt, which could hurt any man at any point. So I could actually see this helping Franco. Some male voters who may have not really cared much about his performance before this stuff came out, might just tick his name down now in the privacy of their home, to show some form of male solidarity.

    At SAG, Denzel might be a distant 2nd, but in the actual race overall he’s probably hovering between 4-6. So he could potentially miss the Oscar nomination. The Franco thing could actually hurt his chances, as I do see many guys as I said, voting for Franco as a rejection of MeToo and TimesUp.

    It surprises me how emotional Gary Oldman gets while recieving this season awards. Same with GG and with SAG, he’s always crying and with emotions that overtake him… and even knowing he’s the frontrunner he can’t help to hide so much emotion.

    So here we have someone who probably desired this recognition so much without disguising it now, he’s truly overwhelmed.

    We all know and he knows he’s going to win the Oscar. I’m wondering if he will try to hide so much emotions… or if he’s going to weep until flooding the theater.
