Kaluuya winning for a movie with so much social commentary would be legendary. The actor is literally starring in instantly classic black cinema for the masses (including "Black Panther"). USA Today's Andrea Mandell writes:

"When I heard about the Daniel nomination, that's the one that really broke me. That's the one that made me cry," says Get Out director/screenwriter Jordan Peele, whose film earned four Academy Awards nominations, including best picture. "I can't overexaggerate how much kinship I feel with that guy."
Kaluuya says he simply makes movies he wants to see, which has invariably led him to directors of color. “I just want to tell stories that empower people around me,” he says. “That are actually around me that I see today, people that WhatsApp me and text me; people in my life."

Chalamet could become the youngest winner. Golden Derby's Joyce Eng writes:

If Timothee Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) somehow upsets Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), the “youngest Best Actor winner” badge won’t be the only age-related title he’ll get. At 22, he would also become the current youngest living Oscar winner. Put it another way: All other living Oscar winners’ current ages are older than 22.

Watch a clip of his performance below.
