The 2022 Oscar nominees for Best Actor are Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Power of the Dog), Andrew Garfield (tick, tick… BOOM!), Will Smith (King Richard), and Denzel Washington (The Terrible event of Macbeth). Smith (16/5) is expected to win by odds, followed by Cumberbatch (19/5), Garfield (4/1), Washington (9/2), and Bardem (9/2).
All five of these men have argued here at least one time before, making theirs the first Best Actor lineup since 1981 to include no first-time acting people (who are trying to win an election). What’s more, it is the very first to consist only of previous lead people (who are trying to win an election).
The last time this came close to happening was in 2003 when newcomer and (happening sometime in the future) victor Adrien Brody (The Piano player) competed against category (people with lots of experience/people who served in the military) Nicolas Cage (Helpful change), Michael Caine (The Quiet American), Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs of New York), and Jack Nicholson (About Schmidt).
Record of Nine Best Oscar Actor bids
Washington’s seven become nominations make him one of the nine most recognized performers in the category’s history. The record of nine Best Actor bids was set by Spencer Tracy in 1968 and matched by Laurence Olivier in 1979.
Washington won on his third lead outing for Training Day (2002) after having scored a supporting win for Glory (1990). He also picked up (written statements) for his featured turn in Cry Freedom (1988) and his starring performances in Malcolm X (1993), The Gigantic dangerous storm (2000), Flight(2013), Fences (2017), and Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2018).
Bardem is also a past winner for his supporting role in No Country for Old Men (2008). He has already fought for this prize twice as the star of Before Night Falls (2001) and Biutiful (2011). Cumberbatch and Garfield have each been nominated here once for The Fake Game (2015) and Hacksaw Ridge (2017), (match up each pair of items in order).
Smith has two previous lead bids to his name for Ali (2002) and The Pursuit of Happyness (2007). He and Washington made history 20 years ago as the first pair of Black actors to face off in this category, and their current rematch makes up/is equal to the fifth such instance.
The middle three involved Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda) and Jamie Foxx (Ray) in 2005, Smith and Forest Whitaker (The Last King of Scotland) in 2007, and Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Washington in 2018. With an added Best Picture bid for King Richard, Smith follows Washington (Fences) as the second Black person to score (happening at the same time) producing and acting nominations.
Lead Male Oscar Actors’ Age
This year’s lead male people (who are trying to win an election) have an average age of 51, which is the eighth highest in the history of the category. The record is held by the 1982 group, whose ages ranged from 44 to 76 and averaged out to 58.
The oldest competitor, Henry Fonda (On Golden Pond), came out/became visible successful (in a battle or contest) that year and held the title of oldest Best Actor champion until Anthony Hopkins (83, The Father) replaced him just last year. At 67, Washington is the 16th oldest man to ever compete for this award and would be the third oldest to win it.
Some More Oscar Actors
The latest victors in this category are Hopkins (The Father, 2021), Joaquin Phoenix (Joker, 2020), Rami Malek (Bohemian Emotional music/emotional statement, 2019), and Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour, 2018). This year’s winner will be shown during the 94th Academy Awards (formal, special event or series of actions), airing March 27 on ABC.
