Absolutely the best performance of the year in any category (maybe the last few years) and it’s a shame it’s being pushed to the side for, let’s be honest, a sympathy vote for an actor in a what could be argued as a supporting performance who the Academy screwed up on recognizing long ago. Everyone knows Hopkins is the right choice and most are even acknowledging that...yet the vote goes in another direction. It’s frustrating.
