    Fincher's track record of getting acting nominations for his films is over a decade strong now, but The Killer feels probably the closest to Zodiac which boasted a starry cast but didn't ultimately merit any acting nominations. Although, the fact is that Zodiac did happen before the big, big Fincher boom with The Social Network that I think ultimately affected films like Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl and so on and so forth in a very positive way. My point is, who's to say that Zodiac wouldn't have gotten acting nominations had it been released in 2011 or 2012 after the Fincher boom with The Social Network.

    Next Goal Wins is a biopic performance so that is that, and the industry does have a certain affection for Taika Waititi as much as this forum hates that, and I don't really ultimately love it either. The Armie Hammer erasure of it all could hurt it and the fact that the film has been so delayed, but I look at something like All the Money in the World and Plummer ultimately going all the way to a nomination for one of the most prime examples of replacement casting we have to go off of. Although the fact is that Plummer is also a beloved, industry veteran and Oscar winner, which is not the same situation for Will Arnett who replaced Hammer. So again, who knows.

    The Killer could result in a Tilda Swinton nomination to fill the "Fincher acting nomination" precedent that's been going strong. I'm saying that as someone who hasn't read the book and doesn't know the role or how meaty it is. However, both Fassbender and Swinton feel like they could earn another nomination since it's been a while since their last nomination for each of them, and the industry does like them. In the case of Next Goal Wins, there does feel like there is an industry contingent that is hoping for the ultimate chance to nomination Elisabeth Moss for something, so maybe that ultimately translates into something there. This is all just to support either of the films based off their other aspects that could be in play for a nomination or Oscar recognition.

    It'll be a good year for Fassbender, though.

    Based on a gut feeling, I'd personally say Next Goal Wins because of biopic and I feel like it'll be a showier, funnier performance, and something we haven't seen from Fassbender. And I personally think the replacement casting and the "we've been waiting to release this" nature of the film, and the industry contingent that loves Waititi, will all be good things in it's favor.
    Yeah, I think the fact that they delayed the movie to replace Armie Hammer actually works in its favor just like it probably did for Plummer. Its also likely going to be released in the lead up to the World Cup where football will be on everyone's minds.

    Yeah I think Next Goal wins will be a player, specially now Armie Hammer is out. It looks the type of feel good movie that will sustain good buzz / word of mouth

    Hoping for Egerton . He’s wayyyy too young to pull a Malek anyways, so I doubt he wins.

    Define way too young cause Butler will be 31 this August. Not that young comparing Daniel Day-Lewis' first Oscar or Nicolas Cage.

    The point ^ your head. Comparing Butler to movie star Cage and legend DDL to one-up me is a flop in the making, when Redmayne would probably be the better comparison because of the young winner in the basic biopic and low brow of it all.

    I don't think Butler's age will be a barrier for him tbh. What matters for his type of film is if the GP eats it up, which I can see happening.

    If I had to pick a cheesy musical biopic to win I would still back I wanna dance with somebody. Baz Luhrman hasn’t been popular with anyone for a while? And I don’t think both are winning unless it’s the apocalypse lol

    There’s like zero chance of Butler getting in when Egerton couldn’t for Rocketman. Egerton got in at SAG, Bafta, and won the globe and still couldn’t get nominated. He also had a way bigger transformation than Butler. Butler will get a globe nom and that’s it.

    It all depends on the competition. Egerton faced some really tough competition. Bale/De Niro missed too while being leads in big BP nominees.

    "And there on top of his head were faces like she had seen only in a dream, almost too beautiful to be recognized as people at all:
    the most beautiful woman and the most beautiful man in the world, she the female version of him, and he the male version of her
    "

    This year looks pretty stacked on paper although we know that might mean nothing by the end of the year..
