WE'RE GONNA FIGHT!
This weekend...one last chance to save Halle's career from complete oblivion. Oh, wait...
"...it's already done."
I don't think Henry would have had a viable chance to win if he had been nominated, simply because his film is too small and he's too unknown, but I do think he was probably either sixth or seventh in voting, considering how Beasts over-performed and Wallis was nominated with little precursor support.
Actually, I chalk Wallis making it + Henry not making it up to campaigning: while they both campaigned pretty equally in the beginning, he stopped campaigning in recent months, while she attended parties and functions left and right, which may account for why she got in but he didn't.

if Henry did get the nom, then yeah. He'd be a major threat as the only non-winner in the group.
Will Oscar have Riva Fever?
I don't really want Jones to win, but it would be better than De Niro winning so I guess if/when he does I'll at least be happy it's not De Niro.
The other 3, I'm fine with.
Ang Lee - The only 2x Bafta/DGA/Oscar-Winning Director!
Meryl on Oscars: Y’see these little babies? These are my best f***ing friends
and they never let me down. Try to get ‘em away from me and I’ll eat you alive.
Best line-up in years but I miss Leo DiCaprio. If I have to choose one from Django he is Leo. Or replace Alan Arkin for him sounds algo good.
De Niro it is.
1. De Niro
In my ranking of the nominees, I'm not sure who I'd rank last: Tommy Lee Jones and Philip Seymour Hoffman.
I have predicted Waltz to win and I hope he does, although Jones gives an incredible performance in Lincoln (my second favorite of his just behind Woodrow Call in Lonesome Dove). The only thing that makes me feel that Jones could win is that if he can win for his performance in The Fugitive (which I think was rigged) he's got it hands down.
I really have no pony here. Hoffman or Jones would probably be most deserving but I kinda want Arkin just for the WTF of it all. Who even knew he would eventually be a 4x nominee?
Jones I think. As daft as it seems to me I think DeNiro has a real shot if they love the movie, even though for me it's my least favourite.
I also don't think Waltz should be underestimated, as weird as it would be. He might win BAFTA.
I know I've got a big ego, I really don't know why it's such a big deal, though.
lol, the hate for De Niro is unjust. He's actually wonderfully sensitive in a way he hasn't been in a long time (maybe ever).
question- are any of them really showing they want it? Like are they out making the rounds and talking to people?
So even if he does win, it may not be a reliable Oscar predictor because of that variable. Still, I think he was terrific and more deserving than half his competition.
I think DeNiro takes the SAG on the weekend and then I don't know what happens from there on in. BAFTA cannot answer any questions in regards to DeNiro, but it may give us an indication of who else is in this race. Tommy Lee Jones seems to be the most likely given his role and performance, but he's failed to gain traction and I really think that his Globes sour-puss face may prevent him from gaining traction in the next couple of weeks. I don't think Arkin has much of a shot, but if Argo takes lead in Best Picture this might be a place to reward it.
