In the Best Actor category, Joaquin Phoenix will look to double up after winning a Golden Globe for Joker, and he’ll be up against Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory, DiCaprio for Once Upon a Time, Adam Driver for Marriage Story and Jonathan Pryce for The Two Popes. Meanwhile, the Best Actress category boasts Cynthia Erivo for Harriet, Saoirse Ronan for Little Women, Charlize Theron for Bombshell, Renée Zellweger for Judy and Scarlett Johansson for Marriage Story.
