    What I've heard from The Son (the play, that is) is that it's apparently Zeller's magnum opus, so as much as DiCaprio has the hype, I'd love if this is finally Jackman's year.

    Maybe if he can act for once.

    Are we sure DiCaprio is the lead? Isn’t Plemmons the lead?

    DiCaprio was spotted on set way more than Plemmons, and it sounds like Scorsese inverted the story more to the perspective of the villains and Osage rather than the investigators.

    Variety confirmed he's lead (at least he'll be in that category).

    May predictions...

    Tier I
    Leonardo DiCaprio, Killers of the Flower Moon
    Colman Domingo, Rustin
    Colin Firth, Empire of Light
    Brendan Fraser, The Whale
    Hugh Jackman, The Son

    Tier II
    Diego Calva, Babylon
    Adam Driver, White Noise
    Colin Farrell, The Banshees of Inisherin
    Viggo Mortensen, Thirteen Lives
    Bill Nighy, Living

    Gosh I have no idea what to do here outside of DiCaprio. Not sure if Colin Firth is the lead opposite Olivia Colman? I could see him swept in if there's a lot of love for that film.

    IIRC, Variety didn't/can't 'confirm' he's lead, they quoted an exec from Apple Original Films that he would be and Plemons would be supporting but we're still far from actual campaigns (although no one has been brave enough to push to same-gender leads for decades).

    After Emancipation getting moved I feel like it will be, regardless of Scorsese's past post-production timelines.

    I'm not sure why Farrell rates so low (x3-tie for 10th presently). He's reteaming with Gleeson and McDonagh post-Billboards (who has directed two Oscars for acting) in a seemingly more personal story that will be focused on acting with an all-Irish cast. He works with auteurs when he can, leaned into character work as of late, and gave an unrecognisable performance in a popular movie this year. He'd also probably campaign hard, considering he just did a baity Ron Howard movie. The twice-nominated (for screenwriting) McDonagh won't have to deal with any Billboards backlash, as it ended up falling short of where things seemed to be headed at one point during the 2017 race.

    I have no idea what the film will be like, but, at least on paper, he carries more potential than Bale. The race doesn't seem to be particularly competitive atp and would be ripe for someone with Farrell's resume to break in. He might even win the British Independent Film award and get another Globe nod.

    I'm predicting Farrell and I feel like he's being underestimated too.

    Empire of Light is still filming and Searchlight already has so many films this year, it's probably gonna be pushed for a Cannes 2023 premiere instead.

    Farrell and his film could be Searchlight's main push this year instead.

    1. Austin Butler - Elvis (attention-grabbing, FLASHY performance that will win SAG, Bohemian Rhapsody redux, televised precursor sweeper)
    2. Leonardo DiCaprio - Killers of the Flower Moon (has The Film)
    3. Hugh Jackman - The Son (great narrative, Oscarless, has The Role)
    4. Bill Nighy - Living (locked to win BAFTA)
    5. Paul Mescal - Aftersun (perfect age to get a Welcome to the Club nom, mental illness role, will sweep the critics and win the trifecta)

    6. Brendan Fraser - Fantastic narrative, loved by everyone, great comeback role
    7. Christian Bale - Amsterdam (DOR film)
    8. Colman Domingo - Rustin

    Yeah I think Farrell should be higher than Fassbender at least until we know which of his roles will actually be the buzzier one.
