Will Gary Oldman take home the Oscar for his performance in 'Darkest Hour'?

Oscar experts are unanimous in their prediction that the March 2018 Academy Awards will favor Oldman. He played the role of Winston Churchill in Joe Wright's 'Darkest Hour'. The film follows Churchill through his first months of his tenure as British Prime Minister and his decision between a negotiated peace with Nazi Germany or prolonged war.

The second choice, according to the experts, was two-time Best Actor winner Tom Hanks for his role as Ben Bradlee in The Post.
