Top 10 early-bird Best Actor Oscar predictions: Leonardo DiCaprio (‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’) rules for now

Top 10 early-bird Best Actor Oscar predictions: Leonardo DiCaprio (‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’) rules for now
Frontrunners are already forming for the Oscar Best Actor race, according to early predictions at Gold Derby. While most films in contention have not yet been released, enough teaser trailers are out there, ranging from “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and “The Irishman” to “Joker” and “Ford v Ferrari” to provide some sense of what at least feels like a worthy contender. We’ve confirmed category placements with studios or campaigners, but — as awards season veterans know — such labels can change later. And once the fall film fests commence, the standings will likely rapidly shift.

Here are the current top 10 lead actor picks on the Gold Derby site, in order, as of Aug. 11:

1. Leonardo DiCaprio (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) — Little wonder why this never-tarnished leading man is the king of this list right now. Both he and first-time co-star Brad Pitt earned the most critical bravos

Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci Wage War in Martin Scorsese's The Irishman

  • Popsugar
This is not a drill, folks: Netflix's latest drama features a combination of talents that may in fact blow your mind. Academy Award winners Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci star in the streamer's upcoming film The Irishman, directed by the one and only Martin Scorsese. The film, which uses digital effects and makeup to de-age the actors to a dark witchcraft-like degree, follows De Niro as Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, a World War II veteran and labor union leader who allegedly became a hitman for the Bufalino crime family and played a role in the disappearance of union activist Jimmy Hoffa. Pacino stars as the notoriously mob-connected union boss Hoffa, with a supporting cast that includes Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale, Ray Romano, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Harvey Keitel.

Robert De Niro Currently in Talks to Join Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese's Adaptation of Killers Of The Flower Moon

It looks like Martin Scorsese may have his dream team in his next movie. After having worked with Robert De Niro on many of his classics like Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Casino, they reunited to make the upcoming film The Irishman after not having worked together in nearly twenty-five years. And they might make it two in a row with Scorsese’s upcoming adaptation of Killers of the Flower Moon. Another Scorsese favorite, Leonardo DiCaprio, is already cast in the film, so the two together would make a pretty special film for the director. DiCaprio and De Niro have worked together before in films such as This Boy’s Life and Marvin’s Room, but have never collaborated under Scorsese’s direction.

The film is based on the nonfiction book by David Grann, with a script by Eric Roth. The publisher, Penguin Random House, describes the book as

Bruce Dern Sympathizes With Rick Dalton in ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood': ‘I’ve Been There’

Bruce Dern Sympathizes With Rick Dalton in ‘Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood': ‘I’ve Been There’
Minor spoilers for “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood” below.

There’s a moment midway through “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood” where Rick Dalton, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, finally loses it. While describing the plot of a book he’s reading to his young co-star, he breaks into tears as he realizes that the book’s story of a past-his-prime gunslinger hews too close to his own life. All the missed opportunities, bad decisions, and regrets that have plagued him since the film’s start finally overwhelm him.

Bruce Dern knows exactly how that feels.

“That moment where he freezes and chokes up…I’ve been there,” Dern told TheWrap. “I was there much earlier in my career because I had such a hard time getting out of TV and into movies, and I was by no means a TV star.”

PETA Pressures DiCaprio and Scorsese to Help Save ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ Chimpanzee
Nearly two years after first contacting Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, PETA has reached out again this week to the film collaborators calling on them to help free the chimpanzee that was featured in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” PETA obtained new video of the chimpanzee being tied up and forced to perform in a circus show. A PETA representative told IndieWire the organization sent letters to Scorsese and DiCaprio asking if they will help in the animal’s release.

“Dear Mr. Scorsese and Mr. DiCaprio,” the letter reads. “Our team recently obtained this footage of Chance, the chimpanzee used in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’ As you’ll see, he’s still being used in a circus sideshow, tethered and forced to perform in front of frightening crowds. There’s still time to help him. Will you? Please let us know.”

Scorsese Begins Scouting ‘Flower Moon’ Locations, Film Reportedly Unites DiCaprio and De Niro
With “The Irishman” almost locked and set for a world premiere on opening night of the 2019 New York Film Festival, Martin Scorsese is moving on to developing his next feature. The legendary director spent the July 26 weekend posting photos to his Instagram page from Osage County, Oklahoma, the setting for his upcoming serial killer drama “Killers of the Flower Moon.” The 1920s-set drama is based on David Grann’s historical book and centers around the Osage Nation murders, in which members of the Native American tribe were killed after the group became rich after discovering oil at their reservation. The murders attracted the attention of the newly-created FBI.

Scorsese confirmed in October 2018 that “Killers of the Flower Moon” would be his next film after “The Irishman,” with Paramount Pictures boarding the project last month. Paramount’s deal brings Scorsese back to the studio after making both “The Irishman” and his
