    Cotillard is supporting in Annette? I feel they may fraud her in Lead anyway, she’s a household name in that category at this point I don’t how big Toni Collette’s role in Nightmare Alley will be, but she’s soooo overdue for some awards love, and feel everybody realised about that after the big moment she had with Hereditary

    If we take the plot synopsis at face value it’s entirely possible that she’s Supporting, yes. But given that the movie is likely to take an unusual approach to storytelling it’s impossible to really know.

    No one has won Lead Actor for a straight-up musical since 1964. It’s a huge ask. And I don’t think anyone has ever won at Cannes for a musical.

    I feel quite confident about him winning Cannes? Isn’t Lee the jury president there?

    I understand your pessimism but I think whilst there is no precedence for him to win that precedence can be broken in the correct circumstances and with the right campaign. During the 2019 Oscars people went on about how there was no precedence for Phoenix and then he won. Same this year with Mulligan getting a nomination. I think if Amazon drives a similar “underrated actor who is incredibly talented” narrative that WB did with Phoenix and Focus did with Mulligan that he could win.

    Yes Spike Lee is the jury president, and we do know he’s a huge Driver fan. I’m sure he’ll jump at the chance to reward him.

    It’s not that I think he can’t win – based on what’s been said so far by Sparks etc I am fully expecting this performance to blow my mind, and it’s a high work rate type performance that the Academy enjoys rewarding (and the possibility of being in prosthetics for even part of is another box checked). Plus Driver arguably has an overdue narrative already despite the fact he’s only been working for a decade.

    I just think there are definite hurdles.

    Oh absolutely. I don’t think it’s going to be an easy win at all (I apologise if it came across that way). Especially considering the competition.

    I hope Driver wins but in a way I want Bradley Cooper to win because his thirst for an Oscar is getting irritating and coming across as patronising at this point.

    The way Adam Driver’s entry for lead and supporting are both win competitive.

    We have no choice but to stan 😌

    The Lost Daughter is starting to appear in people’s predictions very similar to how The Father was this time last year (underrated). The directorial debut of Maggie Gyllenhaal is alike to Florian Zeller, considering her name is already established I think it could reciprocate similar buzz around the father, if the quality is considered consistently very good. Olivia Colman & Dakota Johnson have the acting talent and names to carry it to the Oscars if the source material, script & direction is strong enough I think.

    I think the Cannes win then building momentum to wider awards narrative/path for Driver for Annette is a strong shout. He also has a back up supporting bid for TLD or category fraud for Gucci as options. I also think he has a stronger “overdue” narrative than Cooper because despite Cooper’s many noms, there isn’t a single one where anyone thinks he should have won, whereas you could easily make that argument for Driver from Marriage Story.

    My biggest concern that’s holding him back from being  the frontrunner in lead or supporting is there’s still a big question mark over how good or well-received Annette, TLD and Gucci will be. I mean he could still win on a singluarly great performance, but he’ll need at least one of these films to receive widespread critical acclaim and another big nomination to get to the Oscar.

    Although that said, this thread has now talked him into my predicted winner slot now as well.

    Is Dakota Johnson really going to be the main supporting push for The Lost Daughter? I always thought it would be Jessie Buckley for some reason.

    I’m not too sure, they’re both established in very similar ways in their careers right now so I assume it’ll come down to whose performance is stronger or who has more screen time.

    Wait till we get to Maestro. Once he lose for Nightmare Alley, I can only imagine the irritation by that time. But I do wonder if he’ll get both Lead Actor and Director at the same time for Maestro.

    This.

    That’s why I am undecided on who to put between them in my predictions. But I am inclined to believe that Jessie Buckley may be in flashbacks with a lesser screentime than Olivia.

    Haha same – part of me wants him to never win because I don’t particularly rate him as an actor but the other part wants him to so he dials back his intense thirst because I just can’t take the cringe. I also think he deserved a maximum of one of his previous acting noms. I have him missing for Nightmare Alley too.

    Driver is a significantly better actor IMO, which also makes it interesting to me that Lady Gaga is going from having Cooper as a scene partner to having Driver. Very intrigued to see how they do together (and not just because she’ll probably have to stand on a box for most of it).

    Good point. Buckley’s role sounded more interesting on paper and she has more going behind her at the moment (more prestige, more buzz, rising faster in attention from the industry and her peers in the US). But who knows?

    (and not just because she’ll probably have to stand on a box for most of it).

    Lady Gaga should ask Gillian Anderson if she can borrow her box from The X Files.

    LMAO I saw Driver in Burn This and he’s a genuinely huge dude in person. His hands and feet are absolutely outrageous.

    Just Googled it and Gaga is apparently somewhere between 5’0 and 5’1.

    I also have Cooper missing for Nightmare Alley, which means that by the time Maestro comes around I may have to skip an awards season to avoid second-hand embarrassment.
