Between his career momentum and The Batman, this feels like the right spot for the young actorA surprise 2021 Oscar nominee, Scorsese can make it happen for Supporting Actors and he seems in the best positionOne of those actors you always notice but never remember, maybe Mendes can help him get all the wayNever had a real chance last year for The French Dispatch, but it’s going to happen eventually, right?If anyone can break through from the White Noise supporting cast, Cheadle feels the most overdue

Very much wanted to predict him, but comedians are so difficult to get serious notice from AMPASThey just gave him his second Oscar, but sometimes the Academy gets on these streaksDe Niro just missed for The Irishman, but how much of a role does he have?Despite getting plenty of scorn for his makeup-heavy appearance, he’s still Tom HanksPeople love a comeback story, and who better than a kid actor who went away and comes back to rave reviews?

Should have had an Oscar nomination 25 years ago, but hasn’t come close since. As good a time as anyThe Oscars love giving a nomination to someone outside the viewpoint of the film, but there are worse options than BraugherSpider-Man did a lot of good for his career. Could be headed in the right direction momentum-wiseProbably closer than most realize to a nom for Hell or High Water. One of the more likeable of the Hollywood Chris groupHis talent is not in question, though his off-screen persona does rub plenty of people the wrong way
