Will Inarritu earn Cruise his first Oscar?

Inarritu is known for films such as The Revenant, which helped DiCaprio win a Best Actor Oscar, and Birdman, Babel, Amores Perros and Biutiful. Cruise, despite his global stardom and popularity as one of the most money-making filmstars of his era, is yet to win an Oscar. He has been nominated in the Best Actor category for Born on the Fourth of July and Jerry Maguire. He earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actor category for Magnolia.
