Analysis:

Of the 15 actors on my list of Best Supporting Actor Oscar contenders, about half have been nominated before, and two have actually won the Oscar: Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) and Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri).

Timothee Chalamet, who should score a supporting nod Beautiful Boy, is now the most brilliant and versatile actor of his generation; last year, he won Best Actor from our group, L.A. Film Critics Association and was nominated for Best Actor for Call Me By Your name.
