    He still does more than Elliott.

    Wow imagine comparing Sam Elliott to Adam Driver.

    One is a legend in a small but emotional role in a massively successful film, possibly earning a nomination not only for his decades-long career, but because of the respect he has amassed.
    The other is someone who has, in a matter of a few short years, established himself as an exceptionally talented young actor who has been on the verge of a breakthrough nomination for years.

    I don't know what version of ASIB people here saw, but in the one I saw, Elliott was solid and had some great moments, but hardly enough to earn all this celebratory praise. But that's not the worrying part - that's the fact that people like he's even comparable to Driver. Like surely the screentime difference alone will immediately dismiss the "he did more" argument.

    Love him or hate him, Driver objectively DID do more than Elliott. Whether or not that deserves a nomination is up for debate, but we can't compare a nine minute performance to someone who comes close to being a co-lead.

    So yeah, both will probably get nominated, but for entirely different reasons. Let's not pretend otherwise.

    Frothing is a good adjective, multi purpose too (ie: frothing Lady Gaga stans, frothing Glenn Close stans, frothing Jake Gyllenhaal stans, frothing Nicole Kidman stans...).

And people still referring to Chalamet's buzz as online hysteria when he's out here getting both major and critics noms for a critical and commercial flop will never learn.
    Imagine if he gets the Oscar nom this season... But it was a weak season! they will say.

    It'd be kind of surprising to see both Rockwell and Elliott nominated for such short performances. I'm thinking more and more that Chalamet sticks it out. Although, it could easily be Driver in fifth, not Chalamet.

    How would Driver be below Chalamet if he’s in a best picture player vs. a lone nominee? People on AW also claimed he would miss SAG, yet he didn’t. No matter how much people try to discredit Drivers performance, he has built himself a very nice momentum and with all the factors added he’s indeed very safe for a nomination.

    Chalamet's hot right now and this would be a classic afterglow nod. I'm not saying he is ahead of Driver, only that he very well could be. They're clearly fourth and fifth regardless. Personally don't get the Driver thing at all, but I think it's pretty clear he's happening at this point.

    Which is to say, Ali and Grant are the only locks here. Elliott would be a shock as well, though.

    I don’t get the Driver doubt. I think he’s firmly in and Klansman did very well at both Globes + SAG which is good for its momentum.

    It makes no sense. The guy has a very comfortable spot in the top 5 right now, definitely not below Chalamet.

    Yeah, it’s nonsense. He’s happening.
