Taron Egerton – Rocket Man

“I’m going to try to contain my ire at the Academy for a certain best actor win last year. I cannot contain my ire at them for NOT nominating Egerton’s wonderful and heartbreaking performance as Elton John. It’s one thing to mimic someone. It is entirely different to take on the iconography and voice of a performer, one that is still alive. Twenty years from now everyone is going to wonder why he didn’t win… honey he wasn’t even nominated.” – Adam Kautzer

Eddie Murphy – Dolemite is My Name

“One of the funniest films of 2019 was Dolemite is My Name. Unfortunately, it always felt like Eddie was on the outside looking in relative to Oscar nominations. That’s a shame. Considering his brilliant role in the central performance holds the whole film together and deserved to be one of the Best Supporting Actor nominees.” – Shane Singletary

Franz Rogowski – Transit

“His face, his posture, his indecision, his determination, his emotion, his stoicism. He’s Ilsa Lund and Rick Blaine combined. He’s amazing.” – Marie O’Sullivan

Adam Sandler – Uncut Gems

“Maybe he’s made too many lazy movies during his career, and it prevented the single best lead performance of 2019 from receiving an Oscar nomination.  Sandler disappears into the role.  I found myself forgetting it was even him behind the teeth and the glasses.” – Scott Phillips
