    He should’ve picked a dead celebrity to play.

    This line-up feels thin without Domingo or DiCaprio in play. I feel confident Butler and Jackman are safe. Likewise, I think Fraser is going to have a McConaughey-esque rise. Not sure if that will ultimately translate to a trophy, but he seems to have the perfect narrative and having Sadie Sink as a co-star with significant industry momentum post-Stranger Things, I don't see him getting ignored. Cacho has precedent to support the expectation that he makes the lineup. I am almost certain that final slot will have to go to a veteran. Too many new faces in this group for AMPAS to not be predictable and nominate someone like Pitt or Bale if they're in a Best Picture contender. Kang-ho, Ward, Harrison, Nighy, and Farrell could all throw this into a tailspin though. Here's to hoping things get crazy!

    I was thinking, usually when we have this kind of weak year, usually means two scenarios: a. A full frontrunner since the beginning of the race or b. An overdue star came late into the party. So considering this and the current Netflix slate... What about if Bradley Cooper enters later in the race?

    Yeah, Variety said the film is 2023, but the film has been in post-production since late July. "Maestro" is the kind of film which doesn't require a proper festival route and can perfectly enter in the race as a late newcomer with the names behind - Bradley Cooper, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Todd Phillips... And being honests, this is the current race which Bradley Cooper could wish to win given the competition. Crazy Heart didn't enter in the proper race till early November 2009. And considering this is Netflix, it can be shown for the different groups before the platform release.

    If "Rustin" isn't done yet (or worse) and no one from the current Netflix films came as a strong contender, who knows. Netflix may not think twice about sending "Maestro" if the postproduction is done by October.

    Not happening. And you say "late July" as if that wasn't only a few days ago

    The stars are aligning for Chris Hemsworth for Thor: Love and Thunder.

    But in all seriousness, Paul Mescal (Aftersun) could break in if he becomes the Critical Darling.

    No no I was referring to the postponement of The Killer which will release next year. And also David Fincher is an actors' director after all
