Dev Patel being campaigned as a "supporting" actor makes no sense to me.
Nothing groundbreaking, but still a profoundly moving and beautiful story that's very worth watching.
@MartCous - think it's just a case of Weinstein magic. Patel wouldn't get the nomination in the leading category, so they lobbied for the supporting role (justifying it that he's sharing the character of Sharoo and isn't in the film for the first 1/3 or whatever).
Same thing happened last year with Carol. Mara had no chance winning the leading statuette, so they took a punt and craftily underplayed her importance in the film.
