SAG Predictions: Best Male Actor in a Leading Role

Last year’s nominees: Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari), Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Adam Driver (Marriage Story), Taron Egerton (Rocketman), Joaquin Phoenix (Joker)

I’m making predictions for SAG, which will announce its picks on Thursday, February 4th, just after the Golden Globe nominations being unveiled on Wednesday, though I may revise them then if there are some big surprises. The sure things are Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom), Anthony Hopkins (The Father), and Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods). I think that Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal) will also be included, and it gets quite competitive after that. Strong possibilities include Gary Oldman (Mank), Steven Yeun (Minari), Kinglsey Ben-Adir (One Night in Miami), Tom Hanks (News of the World), and John David Washington (Malcolm and Marie).

Current predictions:
Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)
Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom)
Anthony Hopkins (The Father)
Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods)
Gary Oldman (Mank)
