The Low Down:

I guess it’s time to call it; this is Mahershala Ali’s to lose. Sam Rockwell’s best bet was with the SAG, which Ali nabbed. With Elliot not nominated at the BAFTA’s, Ali’s second Oscar win feels like an unstoppable freight train, and perhaps the best (and least controversial way) to reward Green Book.

The Nominees:

  1. Mahershala Ali, Green Book++++
  2. Sam Elliot, A Star is Born+
  3. Richard E. Grant, Can You Ever Forgive Me?*+
  4. Adam Driver, BlacKKKlansman*
  5. Sam Rockwell, Vice
