- MAHERSHALA ALI Green Book 1/20
- RICHARD E GRANT Can You Ever Forgive Me? 9/1
- SAM ELLIOTT A Star Is Born 16/1
- Mahershala Ali (Green Book) – In the weakest category of this year’s awards season, Ali takes the title for his poise and presence. However there are better supporting actors that should have been on the list (such as Timothee Chalemet in Beautiful Boy) and could easily have beaten him to the line.
The Academy Award Winner
- Mahershala Ali (Green Book)
|A Star is Born
|A worthy remake that grew on me as it went. Both lead roles were played very well and the songs were good, but I didn't buy some of the emotional bits and the British manager was just awful.
|Despite its wewighty subject matter Spike Lee has crafted an engaging film that works as both history and entertainment.
|As funny as it is powerful, as thrilling as it is harrowing, Spike Lee's film delivers an incredibly strong message in the most entertaining way possible, with an ending that is both shocking and necessary. A film the whole world should see.
|Can You Ever Forgive Me?
|True story of a down on her luck author who forges literary correspondence to make ends meet. I can't agree with Oscar nominations for McCarthy or Grant, but it is a nice film that has enough humour without becoming the kind of farce both are usually in.
|if you take it as a biopic of the driver and not of Don Shirley or an exploration of the Green Book itself, then it is a great film. Viggo was brilliant in his lead role and the chemistry with Ali worked well.
|Initially Vice appears to be just an excuse to re-do the Big Short formula and for Bale to dust off his Batman voice, but in fact it is another fascinating docu-dramedy from the master of this new genre, Adam McKay.
