With the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama already in his hands, The Revenant’s star is ready for his acceptance speech; and the world is right behind him. However, looking at the field that’s in competition for the Best Actor honors at this year’s Oscars, it’s not going to be an easy victory for everyone’s favorite upset.
