    I know he’s apparently the runner-up, but could/should this happen?

    And for those who have seen the nominated performances, if based on the acting alone without the overdue sentiment, is Chalamet’s performance more deserving than Oldman’s?

    Seeing CMBYN today, so I have no idea if it should happen. All I know is that it will not happen.

    Personally, I’d give the Oscar to TC but Oldman (while great as well) seems to have some reward the veteran kind of vibe to it.

    In my dream world, Timothee would be winning the Oscar but Gary Oldman has it locked up. And not to take anything away from Oldman, because he was very, very good in “The Darkest Hour.” So, I will be disappointed come Oscar night, but Oldman is also Oscar-worthy here. Maybe a tie? Not happening.

    What is some folks want to give DDL a goodbye present and takes enough votes away from Oldman 🙂

    I’ve rewatched it today and my god, it’s gonna be a robbery of epic proportions. If he was a woman he’d be winning every single televised award. But because he’s a man, he’s fucked. I wish older women would be winning leading actress and young men leading actor but unfortunately that’s not how Oscars work. I have a feeling he’ll pull Heath Ledger and win in supporting category later in his career for (another) undeniable performance.

    In my opinion no. I do think Chamalet’s performance is impressive and deserving of his nomination, though. I also think that if Oldman’s film wasn’t released he would be the front runner, likely winner and record breaker for being the youngest Best Actor winner in history.

    I also think he benefits from more or less being in a dead category this year with only two phenomenal performances in his category. Denzel’s performance is middling and frustrating, Day-Lewis is strapped in a terrible script, and Kaluuya is a non-starter. Comparing his performance to other years makes this even more prominent as a controller. In 2017 he likely would have been in third or fourth place with his performance. In 2016 he likely would have been fourth, In 2015 – third at best, In 2014 fourth and so on.

    All in all I think Oldman had the harder role and I think he gave the better performance – that doesn’t take away from Chamalet – but it does put his performance in perspective. For what it’s worth I would have probably placed him last in the list of exceptional performances this year:

    1. Sally Hawkins
    2. Frances McDormand
    3. Gary Oldman
    4. Laurie Metcalf
    5. Saoirse Ronan
    6. Timothee Chamalet

    Chalamet is a major threat to win this as far as I’m concerned. His performance, while less showy and less showcasy, is equally worthy and he does not carry any “baggage” unlike Mr. Oldman.

    I’m surprised so many seem so certain of many of the races this year. This is not that kind of year but if Gary wins I’ll be very happy for him. His Churchill is a dream. Love that portrayal.

    I liked Chamalet’s performance but a win ain’t happening…close to zero chance, barring an Oldman scandal.

    The way the media is covering Gary Oldman’s past kind of confuses me. Watch them come out with articles like a conveyor belt the day after he wins the Oscar. It’s definitely Casey Affleck all over again.

    Could Oldman get Stallone’d? Possibly; he’s had a decidedly up-and-down career and has undoubtably pissed off his fair share of people (see The Contender). But he’s also been pretty well insulated this awards season so it’s his to lose.

    Agreed. Been very interesting to watch.

    Chalamet’s performance will be remembered. It will resonate well beyond these silly trophies.

    He deserves the nomination but not the win. Daniel Day Lewis was the best this year with Oldman second.

    As much as I’d like to see it happen, after BAFTA announced Oldman a few minutes ago I’d say it looks pretty impossible. Maybe there’s a 10% chance pending some Oldman related scandal others have mentioned above, otherwise this would count as one of the more justified yet most shocking upsets in Oscar history.

    Do you see it that way because you feel that Oldman’s performance is soo far superior or is it something else?
