Sure, “The Florida Project” can win Best Picture and Willem Dafoe can yet again win for his supporting role in that film. Sure, “Get Out” can win another screenplay award and Laurie Metcalf can continue to clinch her Oscar nomination. And sure, even Roger Deakins can win for Cinematography and “Baby Driver” can win for Best Film Editing. Even Margot Robbie can grab another Best Actress award. But Andy Serkis winning Best Actor for his motion capture performance in “War For The Planet Of The Apes” is unequivocal and could be the best part of this entire awards season. If he could get nominated for an Oscar for all he’s done, the world would be right again.
