WHO WILL WIN
Mahershala Ali – Moonlight
What a year for Mahershala Ali. The talented actor has broken out with roles in Luke Cage, Hidden Figures and Moonlight. His name must be at the top of casting lists everywhere with good reason. Ali is intense and focused in any role, whether he is playing a menacing character or, as he does in Moonlight, a shockingly compassionate one. To call him compelling is a significant understatement. He is typically the best thing on the screen and the actor an audience cannot help but respond to. He is going to win the Oscar.
WHO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE WIN
Jeff Bridges – Hell or High Water
I loved this movie. Loved it. And I love Jeff Bridges. Was this the finest performance of his career? No, but it was very, very good and he elevated every scene he was in. The Cinnamon Girl suggests that Bridges has a clause in every contract he signs that says he gets to say whatever he wants on screen whenever he wants to say it. That’s how good his performances are: he seems as though he’s making them up as he goes along.
