Here are the nominees for Best Actor in a Leading Role:

Timothee Chalamet – Call Me By Your Name

Daniel Day-Lewis – Phantom Thread

Daniel Kaluuya – Get Out

Gary Oldman – Darkest Hour

Denzel Washington – Roman J Israel Esq.

Who I’m Cheering For: Multiple names I admire on this list, but looking at all the names above, I realized I’m screaming the loudest on Sunday if Kaluuya wins.

Who Should Win: If the critieria is ‘degree of difficulty within the film they’re nominated for’, it would have to be one of the kids: Chalamet or Kaluuya.

Who Will Win: Commissioner Gordon is due for his ‘lifetime achievement Oscar’.  And I’m fine with that.
