    What it says on the title (putting it here because the movie boards are too much of stan-fest for this question)

    Nominees in the last five years for the point of this exercise.

    I’ll go from 2018 onwards because there were all sorts of creeps and weirdos who aren’t relevant these days who were nominated in 2016 and 17.

    Comedy Actress: Jean Smart

    She reminds me of Allison Janney (beloved multi Emmy winning TV veteran who has had a decent amount of “small supporting roles” in film over the past few years, is in the midst of hot buzz and sweeps in supporting when they get a juicy role). Who knows maybe she’ll sweep for Babylon in 2023? Rachel Brosnahan seems to be dipping into cinema recently (although her projects have been unsuccessful thus far) so I guess she’s possible too. I can see Applegate, Cardellini and Louis-Dreyfus also having a chance for similar reasons to Smart/Janney (Louis-Dreyfus probably wasn’t that far off for Enough Said anyway).

    Comedy Actor: Ted Danson

    A beloved veteran like Metcalf/Janney. I can see Bill Hader having a chance if he gets a project or role as juicy as Barry on the big screen. Everyone else has either already been nominated, are multi-hyphenates who would probably have to manufacture their own path or simply won’t get the opportunities. Although Ramy Youssef is going to be in the new Yorgos Lanthimos so who knows?

    ————————————————————————————————

    Drama Actress: Zendaya

    Along with Taylor-Joy she’s one of the Hollywood it-girls of the moment and she keeps getting offer after offer. I won’t be surprised if she sweeps with the right role. Jodie Comer also seems to be getting a lot of offers and is certainly capable of delivering an Oscar worthy performance although she sort of reminds me more of Benedict Cumberbatch than Olivia Colman. She seems to be constantly switching between prestige television (both American and British), big commercial ventures like Free Guy and baity projects from high profile directors like Kitbag. Elisabeth Moss and Claire Foy have developed a lot of goodwill over the years outside of The Handmaid’s Tale/Mad Men and The Crown (especially the former) and seem to be getting high profile offers so I wouldn’t be surprised to see them nominated sometimes soon. Robin Wright is overdue, Jurnee Smollett always seems to be on the verge of a breakout, Jennifer Aniston has garnered some prestige appeal after The Morning Show and she wasn’t so far off for Cake. Sandra Oh (wouldn’t it be funny if she became the next TV actor to win an Oscar before an Emmy?) and Keri Russell both seem possible too. As does Evan Rachel Wood who also probably came close with Thirteen and has been in a few interesting project (both Oscar contending and independent features) over the past few years.

    Drama Actor: Jeremy Strong/Sterling K. Brown/Jason Bateman/Brian Cox/Josh O’Connor/Matthew Rhys(!!!)

    Brown and Rhys have delivered critically acclaimed turns in independent films (and in Rhys’ case an Oscar nominated picture) so really it’s about the right role and right film. The industry seems to be in love with Jason Bateman, Brian Cox is arguably overdue and in the midst of a renaissance off the back of Succession, Jeremy Strong seems to be getting cast in things left, right and centre and Josh O’Connor has been rising in independent and European cinema even before The Crown so I can perhaps see him “pull a Vanessa Kirby” with the right role and circumstances. This is also without mentioning Jonathan Majors who seems to have been having quite a run since Da 5 Bloods although he’s probably got a lot of Marvel stuff that might tie him down for a bit.

    ————————————————————————————————

    Limited/Movie Actress: Anya Taylor-Joy

    Anya Taylor-Joy feels inevitable like Zendaya with how many things Hollywood has been casting her in since The Queen’s Gambit. Sarah Paulson had the perfect role and performance in Carol and if that film came out now (and Mara wasn’t frauded into supporting) she probably would at the very minimum have had a run like Lesley Manville in Phantom Thread. Aunjanue Ellis could get nominated this year for King Richard. Kerry Washington also seems possible at the very least with her status. Elizabeth Olsen has been in the conversation before and I have no doubt that she will be again if she gets a Martha Marcy May Marlene again with this career surge she’s had. The path for Michaela Coel will be harder but if she creates her own path by delivering another auteur driven project but for the big screen I can see her getting a nomination. Like Riz Ahmed she’s done some work in British independent cinema in the past so perhaps with this US exposure she can find her own Sound of Metal.

    Limited/Movie Actor: Ewan McGregor

    He’s been in quite a few projects where his co-stars have been nominated butt he hasn’t (Beginners, Moulin RougeThe Impossible) but with both his win for Halston and Obi-Wan it seems like he could have more directors’ eyeballs on him in the next few years. Ditto with Paul Bettany especially now he’s done with Marvel. I’d probably say the same with Hugh Grant but A Very English Scandal was quite a few years ago now and the most prestigious thing he’s done was The Undoing. Paul Mescal has been cast in some interesting things but the hype behind him seems to have died down from last year and they all seem to be quite niche. Comparatively Daisy Edgar-Jones seems to be getting cast in very baity roles.

    Keri Russell. Do I stan? Yes. But she also strikes me as someone who could easily happen in supporting with the right role. Hopefully she’s getting better offers now after The Americans (and the pandemic lol).

    Ann Dowd and Martha Plimpton are major contenders this year for “Mass.”

    Billy Porter. Just give him a vehicle and I’m sure he will be there.

    I didn’t mention her in my initial post because I was only covering the lead categories but with this career surge Gillian Anderson has been having if she gets a role similar in bait to her First Lady one on the big screen I can see her having a similar path to Regina King.

    Its hard to believe Ewan McGregor and Hugh Grant have never had Oscar nominations. Both consistently good and have been around since the 1990’s.

    Sterling K. Brown feels inevitable.

    I think that given the industry in general seemed desperate to nominate Bryan Cranston in his first major leading role post-Breaking Bad (regardless of the reviews for Trumbo), Dinklage is probably a lock for a Beat Actor nomination this year with Cyrano.

    I agree with everything and I don’t want to be that person but I don’t think Paul Bettany is done with Marvel. His character (Vision) is still alive and well. He will probably be in some more movies/shows this decade I’m sure.
