Will Win - Sam Rockwell "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"
Could Win - Willem Dafoe "The Florida Project" or Christopher Plummer "All the Money in the World"
Should Win - Sam Rockwell "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"
Commentary - Willem Dafoe seemed destined to win his first Oscar, but ever since the Globes, it has been Sam Rockwell's to lose. Even up against his co-star Woody Harrelson, he has dominated the major acting awards top to bottom. There is an easy explanation for this. Rockwell is a talented veteran actor with so many credits to his name. He is a well-liked in this industry, and his performance, while controversial, is also brilliant as hell, and he will most likely be an Oscar winner on his first, and well overdue, try.
