I make no bones about sharing that I haven’t seen all of the anticipated nominees – that’s what Oscar Binge is for – but I do have a few picks for the pics based on other major nominations, what I have seen and the buzz that’s out there. So here goes… and in no particular order.
- Ryan Gosling, La La Land
- Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea
- Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge
- Denzel Washington, Fences
- Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, January 24.
