    Since 2003 (when the Critics Choice began choosing nominees), there have been eight actors who didn’t make it in at any major precursors (Golden Globes, Critics Choice, SAG, or BAFTA) but still slid into the lineup on Oscar morning. Which of these surprise nominations was the best?

    Emmys FYC: Maya Erskine in PEN15, Paapa Essiedu in I May Destroy You, Keeley Hawes in It's a Sin, Carl Lumbly in TFATWS, Cristin Milioti in Made for Love, Elizabeth Olsen in WandaVision, Billie Piper in I Hate Suzie, Hailee Steinfeld in Dickinson, William Zabka in Cobra Kai

    Max von Sydow in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close. I’d also like to add in Willem Dafoe for At Eternity’s Gate, because despite nominations from the Golden Globes and Critics Choice, he was still considered a longshot for an Oscar nomiation.

    Lucas Hedges for me.

    You guys think Hill’s nomination was a shock?

    Shannon (who should already be an Academy Award winner).

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Same.

    Max von Sydow was a waste. Terrible lineup.
