Brian Tyree Henry for Best Supporting Actor
Much of the acting attention for If Beale Street Could Talk has been rightfully aimed at Regina King. There’s no need to explain this since the woman has been killing it since 227.
However, one performance has been grossly overlooked by the awards circuit, and it’s Brian Tyree Henry‘s.
In the movie, he plays Daniel, a friend to Stephan James‘ character Fonny. After being released from prison, Daniel shares a hunting tale of life behind bars and though the scene was probably less than ten minutes, it was definitely worth all the Oscar nominations.
