Toronto may also allow discoveries like Swankie, the real-life nomad in “Nomadland,” to put herself in contention for a nomination (she’s THAT good). Awaiting the young newcomers to drop into the fold like Ariana DeBose (“West Side Story”) taking on Rita Moreno’s Oscar-winning role. She’s got big shoes to fill. This race can go a number of ways.
