Between his career momentum and The Batman, this feels like the right spot for the young actorGoing Supporting might seal his nomination, especially after the recent festival runPeople love a comeback story, and who better than a kid actor who went away and comes back to rave reviews?American faces in International films get a standout and by all accounts, Woody has the goodsIf anyone can break through from the White Noise supporting cast, Cheadle feels the most overdue

They just gave him his second Oscar, but sometimes the Academy gets on these streaksOne of those actors who is always great may finally get his first nod in a film where he is the lone sympathetic maleSpider-Man did a lot of good for his career. Could be headed in the right direction momentum-wiseApparently only has one scene, but it is a killer. He’s been doing consistent work since his lone nominations in 1980Very much wanted to predict him, but comedians are so difficult to get serious notice from AMPAS

Despite getting plenty of scorn for his makeup-heavy appearance, he’s still Tom HanksHe’s been on the cusp of breaking through for a while. Is this the right role for it to happen?He is having a blast in the trailer, but is he just fun or is there drama?The Oscars love him and he has been called the standout along with MonaeA solid track record and Atlanta goodwill will eventually translate to Oscar success. But will it be for this gentle film?
