    I know this is probably not the most important category to most people but as I look at peoples’ predictions and overall odds it is really surprising me how he is always top by a reasonably large margin.

    That award is voted for by British public no a non-British person has won every year but 3 – Kristen Stewart (in the heat of twilight – one of the biggest franchises at that time), Shia Labeouf (just after the first transformers movie) and Eva Green (Who had just been a bond girl (which kinda has the British factor going for it anyway). I always say its going to be a British person and if it is not it will be the person in the biggest movie. Chalamet is in 3 movies this year and none of them are even close to blockbusters.

    Get Out made a ton of money and Kaluuya is British so I would say he has a really good shot. If they don’t go for somebody British surely Tessa Thompson is more likely because Ragnarok was a huge movie?

    Anyone who is predicting Chalamet could they share some reason why because I really don’t get it. Or is it just that people don’t understand what this category is?

    Because he stole every gay man’s heart on this blog. Plus he was outstanding in his role as Elio.

    People mistake obsessed twitter fans with wider public support. Kaluuya is indeed winning.

    On the BAFTAs, I can’t believe more people aren’t tipping Hugh Grant. I would have him second favourite to Rockwell.

    Is he beating an established British actor playing one of the most famous British politicians?

    There is a very big difference between critics and the general public. How much of the general public has even seen CMBYN and Lady Bird? Especially in Britain.

    I understand that on these blogs CMBYN fans are everywhere (I am one of them) but seriously, in the general public people don’t even know what it is. And Lady Bird is much bigger in America than England.

    Who are his other supporters then? CMBYN is a very small movie. So is lady bird.

    Kaluuya is British and was in Skins. Of course he’s winning.
