Did They Get it Right? – Best Actor – Oscars 2021

Here are the five nominees: (Winner in Bold)

Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos)
Benedict Cumberbatch (The Power of the Dog)
Andrew Garfield (Tick, Tick… Boom!)
Will Smith (King Richard)
Denzel Washington (The Tragedy of Macbeth)

Biggest Snub:

Peter Dinklage – Cyrano

My Overall Thoughts:

This is a mediocre year for this category and Smith seems to have been in the lead from the beginning despite this not being his best performance.

My Rankings:


5. Denzel Washington
4. Javier Bardem
3. Benedict Cumberbatch
2. Will Smith
1. Andrew Garfield


5. The Tragedy of Macbeth
4. The Power of the Dog
3. Being the Ricardos
2. King Richard
1. Tick, Tick… Boom!

Do I agree with the Oscar winner? – Yep!  This was Smith’s award to lose and not surprisingly, he took it home since there wasn’t much competition for him here even if Garfield was slightly better.

Let me know what you think about these films and my rankings!
