Gosling is riding high off of being in a Best Picture frontrunner. He won the Golden Globe for Best Actor — Musical or Comedy for his performance as a struggling musician who falls in love with an aspiring actress in Hollywood.

And ever since he won that Golden Globe, film critics predict that Gosling could upset Washington and Affleck. It's very possible that "La La Land" will win the top five Oscars—Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay—after sweeping the awards season.

Garfield already surprised the Tylt, beating out Denzel in our first round poll. And some hope that the underdog pulls another upset and wins the Oscar for his touching performance as real-life hero Desmond T. Doss. The World War II army medic won the Medal of Honor after refusing to kill or use a gun in the war, but saved lives on the battlefield instead. The biopic is moving, and a win for Garfield would be moving too.
