Critics’ Choice + Golden Globe + SAG + BAFTA – here’s who’s got ’em

With the BAFTA nominations just announced this week, we now have the list of actors nominated for all four major precursors: Critics’ Choice, Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA. Being a combination of industry and critics’ groups, the combination of these four are about as secure as you can be as an actor in the hunt for an Oscar nomination. But don’t get too comfortable, history is littered with high-profile performances and actors who have gotten the sought after quadrants only to be left at the alter. Last year, Amy Adams hit all four and was in a film with Best Picture and Best Director nominations and got snubbed. Oscar winners Tilda Swinton, Emma Thompson and Marion Cotillard have all been snubbed, too.

 

Best Actress looks the closest to solid right now, with four actresses securing all precursors. Sitting right on the outside are Meryl Streep, Judi Dench and Jessica Chastain. Best Actor has three solid contenders and two open spots. Those fighting for it are Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington and James Franco.

The supporting categories are really open. Only two performers in each category have locked in the four. That means there are three slots completely up for grabs and over a dozen possibilities to fill them.

Last year, 13 performances hit this mark. This year, only 11 did. Here they are.

ACTOR

Timothée Chalamet – Call Me By Your Name
Daniel Kaluuya – Get Out
Gary Oldman – Darkest Hour (GG winner – Drama)

ACTRESS

Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (GG winner – Drama)
Margot Robbie – I, Tonya
Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird (GG winner – Comedy)

SUPPORTING ACTRESS

Allison Janney – I, Tonya (GG winner)
Laurie Metcalf – Lady Bird

SUPPORTING ACTOR

Willem Dafoe – The Florida Project
Sam Rockwell – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (GG winner)

Last year, we got Oscar nominees from outside this group in Lucas Hedges, Ruth Negga, Denzel Washington, Isabelle Huppert, Meryl Streep, Viggo Mortensen and Octavia Spencer from there. The last 6 years had at least one acting contender that got in with no GG/SAG/BAFTA nomination. In fact, there are only four years (2001, 2002, 2006, 2010) without a nominee of a GG+SAG+BAFTA snubbed performance. Meaning, we might find at least one potential nominee in the Critics Choice Only section. Then there’s always Michael Shannon, who leapfrogged over his co-star in Nocturnal Animals (Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who actually won the Golden Globe) to end up Oscar-nominated. Can he do it again?

Here’s how the rest of this season’s contenders break down and where we might find the nominees to fill out the four acting categories.
