    1. Austin Butler, Elvis

    3. Hugh Jackman, The Son
    4. Colin Farrell, Banshee
    5. Bill Nighy, Living

    6. Colman Domingo, Rustin (I’m just not feeling this movie; I blame Dustin Lance Black)
    7. Leonardo DiCaprio, Killers (I dunno; I guess I’d have to see the performance first)
    8. Daniel Cacho, Bardo

    I can see a sophomore slump with Zeller. Perhaps the slump will be not winning anything? The Father overperformed, but the director didn’t seem to attract any backlash.

    I think Farrell and Nighy have compelling narratives. Enough to keep voting for them until more persuasive scenarios come along. On paper, Farrell makes a lot more sense than people are giving him credit for.

    I hope Cooper Raiff at least manages a Globe Comedy nom, he's so charming in "Cha Cha",
    but I guess they do kinda fill out those comedy slots with bigger names who have whatever project

    If it manages it way to a screenplay nom (or at least stay in the conversation) he’ll probably happen at the Globes, similar to Fisher, Feldstein, de Armas, Elgort, Samberg.

    After seeing Broker I'm removing Song from my predictions. I love him but it's a subtle co-lead/ensemble role and most of the emotional weight is from IU's character instead.

    The odds of The Son repeating The Father success are very low, because it's just unlikely to have two films back to back with such a success even for the biggest film directors. Zeller is not of the greatest european filmmakers and it feels like he would have to be to pull it off so soon again. You have no idea how hard it will be for him, there are so many aspect of it: expectations, ability to make different film, not to repeat himself etc. And then there is aspect of SPC campaign and how everything clicked together at the end of the season for the Father. There was a lot of luck involved too. What are the odds of the Son following its path?

    Look at Barry Jenkins, Damien Chazelle. Everybody expected their follow ups to be big players and they just werent, they got some noms, but it just go to show how hard is to followup big succes. And they are much bigger names than Zeller. Any nomination for the Son will be huge success and oscar for lead actor or BP nomination would be fairly stunning

    If October really is the release month, being out early could make it easier for them. 'The Father' had a lot of visibility issues.

    Hmmm. Audiences seem to be in agreement with the reviewer consensus on Butler being very, very good. He seems like a lock for a nomination now, and a possible winner.

    Yeah, regardless of what everyone feels about Elvis as a whole, Butler seems to be universally praised. I mean in the event that he manages to take it all the way, it is a much celebrated win already than let's say the Redmaynes and the Maleks.

    I agree re: the upper few comments about Butler. With Dune 2 coming eventually and the near-raves concerning his performance in Elvis, I think he’s on a good path for a nomination.

    I wouldn't mind a Butler nom simply for the fact that without him, I probably would've thrown my popcorn at the screen.

    There're exceptions on that rule. Just recently Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird-Little Women BP consecutive noms.
