Mahershala Ali is projected to win here, despite a surprise loss to Aaron Taylor-Johnson at the Golden Globes.
Our predictions and further analysis are below:
Mahershala Ali’s Moonlight performance was such a stunning, bright light it almost dulled the rest of the film. Dev Patel won the BAFTA in a surprise turn, leading him to a better chance at taking the statuette.
Bridges has 5 previous nominations and 1 win. His recent win in 2010 will likely lessen his chances at winning again so soon. Shannon also has one previous nomination.
- Mahershala Ali – “Moonlight”
- Dev Patel – “Lion”
- Jeff Bridges – “Hell or High Water”
- Lucas Hedges – “Manchester by the Sea”
- Michael Shannon – “Nocturnal Animals”
