Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

The competition: Timothee Chalamet’s vacationing teenager (Call Me By Your Name), Daniel Day-Lewis’ dressmaker (Phantom Thread), Tom Hanks’ bold editor (The Post), Gary Oldman’s Winston Churchill (Darkest Hour), and Denzel Washington’s ethical lawyer (Roman J. Israel, Esq.).

For your information: This is the ninth career nomination for Hanks, who has won four trophies, three of which were for this category. This is also the ninth nomination for Washington, a nominee last year who has won twice and received the Cecil B. DeMille Award two years ago. This is the eighth nomination for Day-Lewis, who has two previous wins. Despite earning an Oscar nomination in 2011, this is Oldman’s first nomination here, as well as Chalamet’s. Only Chalamet and Hanks have their films nominated for the top prize.

Who should win? I have yet to see Day-Lewis’ performance but for now would vote firmly for Oldman.

Who will win? Even though his film isn’t nominated in any other category, I think that Oldman will still blow the competition out of the water.
