Damn, how i wish it was Johnny DeppApril 30, 2021 at 8:05 pm #1204237451
I wanna say Will Smith for King Richard, but the academy won’t give it to him lmaoApril 30, 2021 at 9:12 pm #1204237519
Willem DafoeApril 30, 2021 at 9:14 pm #1204237523
I think we all know who it’s not.April 30, 2021 at 9:21 pm #1204237540
Johnny Depp is never going to win.April 30, 2021 at 9:27 pm #1204237548
Dafoe is the definition of a respected veteran who has been waiting in the wings forever. If he keeps getting meaty roles he is winning soon, probably in Supporting but possibly in Lead.
Depp is dunzo.
Norton’s way past his momentum for now but Hollywood loves comebacks so you never know.
Smith and Cruise are considered blockbuster stars rather than thespians, even though both are excellent actors. They – especially Smith – could win with the right role but it’s far from a sure thing to happen.
Downey Jr. needs a transformational role to build a narrative. I wouldn’t put it past him, in fact I think it’s more likely than not to happen somewhere down the line. Ditto Damon.
Gyllenhall is winning at some point.
Gosling is a heavyweight – a commercial draw and a widely respected actor. He will win Best Actor, probably during the next ten years.
Poor Jackson is silver screen charisma on a stick and way overdue, but unfortunately my crystal ball tells me he will keep being overlooked until one day he gets his honorary trophy.April 30, 2021 at 9:36 pm #1204237568
Dafoe it’s the obvious answer. He’s really having the greatest moment of his career right now, with three acclaimed performances in a row present in awards season and more exciting work to come. He also reminds me of Laura Dern in a sense that he’s a veteran, but I think he recently has gained a lot of popularity among young people. That may be just my perception but I see people making fancams of him on Twitter and rooting for him on Letterboxd reviews lol
Next I would say Ryan Gosling and Will Smith. Jake Gyllenhaal seems to be more interested in action films nowdays.
Robert Downey Jr and Jonny Depp, big fucking no lolMay 1, 2021 at 12:34 am #1204237740
Hopefully Gyllenhaal. He’s been working hard for it. It’s time.
Also, Depp is dead-done. And he is dead-one since Sweeney Todd. His current scandals aren’t helping either. Other than one or two average projects, his filmography has been the worst in the last 14 years.
Not to sound problematic, but Matt Damon has won his first ever Oscar ages ago 🙂 I don’t think he needs more.

Technically speaking, Damon is an Oscar winner (although as a writer).
Dafoe is the safest pick, but I go with Ryan Gosling. He’s a heavyweight and the recent casting news from Universal, Netflix, Neon and Warner Bros. shows the studios are still with him (prestige and commercial films) and he’s finally comfortable with his star status.
Gyllenhaal may be talented but for some reasons, Hollywood doesn’t show key interest in him and likely he’s not in first tier of the Hollywood chain food like Gosling or Bradley Cooper (As happened with Leonard Bernstein projects for example). The recent decision to make actions films (Closer to Mark Wahlberg films) can be a red alert measure to show BO muscle.
Downey Jr. had a big opportunity but he felt in the Johnny Depp tramp as corporative sellout (As some of his recent projects shows cough Doolitle cough)… Speaking of Depp, he’s done. All the potential comeback is gone (He may return as nominee but we know AMPAS isn’t keen with comeback with guys with messy disasters and bad reputations).
I don’t know if Edward Norton has gained some confidence after burning many bridges.May 1, 2021 at 12:54 am #1204237754
The one who should have won an Oscar for The Lighthouse.
"The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.May 1, 2021 at 1:13 am #1204237774
Edward Norton is no longer a leading man but merely an ensemble player in pieces like Birdman and Wes Anderson films. Anyone remember the complete floppage of Motherless Brooklyn? Norton’s best case is do some baity television role and hope for some Emmys glory.
Matt Damon may be in contention for a win in The Last Duel where he also took place in the screenplay process.
I feel like Will Smith will never get another nomination again after the continuous flop films he’s been in. If Eddie Murphy couldn’t make an awards comeback with Dolemite, I doubt Smith makes a comeback with King Richard.
Jake Gyllenhaal’s best chance is at supporting but the British block seems to like since they nominated him for Nocturnal Animals and Nightcrawler.
Willem Dafoe getting in for that Van Gogh movie no one saw was huge. Auteurs seem to love his acting style as they should. This year alone he has Wes Anderson, Eggers, Schrader, and Del Toro players. He has the best chance at winning and he might this year for whichever player gives him the most juicy role since his character work is extraordinary. I’m expecting him to win in supporting with an awards friendly character role thats loud and bombastic to steamroll the whole season a la Simmons.

Willem Dafoe it is. But I’m hoping for a Jake Gyllenhaal victory. He’s such a talented actor.
If Will Smith doesn’t succeed with King Richard, I won’t think he ever will. Sadly, Johnny Depp is done like other users pointed out

Don’t underestimate Will Smith’s chances of winning this year for King Richard.Not now
