This category is such a mess I'm only confident in Jones and Hoffman at the moment; hopefully SAG and GG help resolve it.
Yeah I totally think Leo can and will miss SAG, and he will still be nominated for Oscar and maybe even win. If MGH could do it then the biggest Hollwyood star with three prvious nods and already rewarded competitors can. But he needs to win the globe, that's for sure (not that he won't, I'm pretty sure he will).
More like LOL DeNiro, but let's not get into that again...LOL, McConaughey?
Let's remember that TLJ isn't some sort of steamroll. So far, he has failed to win anywhere big, while Leo hasn't. If TLJ was sweeping I'd agree, but he's very far from it.
Jones (Winner; You KNOW they would love to give him a SAG).
I'm assuming they didn't see Django in time.
