Golden Globes 2021: Best Lead Actor — Who Will Be Nominated?

With the 78th annual Golden Globe nominations approaching soon, Variety Awards Editors Clayton Davis and Jenelle Riley examine the contenders for the best lead actor category for both drama and comedy or musical in the latest Variety Awards Circuit video.

Kicking things off on the drama side of the category, Davis said there’s no other name to be more passionate and excited for than the late Chadwick Boseman, who plays trumpeter Levee Green in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” “It’s everything that Chadwick ever would do, could do in film,” Davis said. Riley said that Boseman will have to stave off some tough competition from the likes of Anthony Hopkins in “The Father,” which she said could a stealth contender all across the board.

Other top actors mentioned for the best actor in a drama category were Delroy Lindo in “Da 5 Bloods,” Riz Ahmed in “Sound of Metal,” John David Washington in “Malcolm and Marie” and Denzel Washington in “The Little Things.”
