    Yeah, I think itís possible Banshees plays better with the BAFTAs than The Whale (itíll probably appeal to their sensibilities more overall and it helps that the latter has inferior reviews), but I donít get this almost expectation that SAG and BAFTA will split, with Farrell winning the latter. Kinda just seems like because Farrell is Irish, people figure heíll win there. Perhaps itís unpopular, but I think SAG and BAFTA will have the same winner in Actor. Iíd bet on BAFTAs leaning lowbrow/American like they did last year.

    In a fair world, Mescal would be locked in but I honestly can’t see it after watching the movie
    The character and his performance is too far out of an Oscar nomination performance. Unless critics and Trifecta go hard on him Antonio Banderas in Pain and Glory style, I don’t see it.
    Anyway, this is a great addition to establish himself as one of the most interesting young actors working today after the Normal People breakthrough and hopefully he’ll get some critic mentions/wins
    Also Charlotte Wells needs to come for these First Film awards.

    That's what's holding me back too! He's having a great run so far, in good shape, but I don't know... Even someone like Dafoe in Florida Project is more Oscar-friendly. I can't think of a similar type of performance that has been nominated there.

    Wouldn't call using the same gifs over and over again 'killing it', but to each their own.

    On the latest Indiewire podcast, Anne Thompson recently added Mescal to her predictions. She thinks momentum is building for him, but that his biggest hurdle will be the film being seen. And Eric Kohn said that he recently attended an A24 dinner last week in NY that was attended by Charlotte Wells and other critics and he came away thinking that the film will possibly do well with NYFCC. Hold the line!

    I think any slim chance that he has hinges on what the trifecta does.

    LaBelle is very sweet and present in the film, but I'm not seeing it. Mescal needs trifecta for exposure, but I think he'll get it, and be the main beneficiary of a preferential ballot. Hanks' buzz is too mute.
