We really can’t wait till the Academy Awards! If you want to know who could be running for Best Actor nomination honors keep reading as we reveal the greatest contenders for the Oscars 2021!  

  • Anthony Hopkins won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his incredible performance as the cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs” in 1991.
  • Bill Murray was nominated for Best Actor in “Lost in Translation” in 2004. He was considered a favorite to win the golden stattuete, but Sean Penn won the award at the end for his excellent performance in “Mystic River.”

“The Father” starring Anthony Hopkins, who gives his best performance ever as a man suffering from dementia opposite Olivia Colman as his daughter. The movie was launched at the Sundance film festival with fantastic reviews.

Delroy Lindo plays the leading character in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” streaming on Netflix. The actor received amazing reviews thanks to his role as a traumatized vet who returns to Vietnam. This could be Lindo’s first Oscar nomination!

Returning to the Oscar hunt, Bill Murray as a playboy father and suspicious marital detective working for his daughter, Rashida Jones in Sofia Coppola’s “On the Rocks” which was very well received at the New York Film Festival.

Ben Affleck is a new face in the Best Actor’s predictions, because he was never before nominated for his acting skills. Critics applauded Affleck for his role as an alcoholic coach in “The Way Back”.

We believe Chadwick Boseman certainly deserves to win a posthumous Best Actor nomination for his outstanding role as a jazz musician backing singer Ma Rainey, played by Viola Davis in George C. Wolfe’s movie “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”
