I'm surprised Mahershala Ali didn't sweep through the major precursors. He won SAG and Critic's Choice but lost the Globe to an un-nominated Aaron Taylor-Johnson and the BAFTA to Dev Patel. I still think Ali is going to win but he's not a lock. I think a Dev Patel upset is possible since Lion apparently is starting to pick up steam and Uncle Harvey is behind it.
Don't understand what's so great about Ali's performance. Bridges and Shannon are the best in this bunch.
I totally agree with you
