    So I’ll stick with my predictions: Jared Leto for the win, my beloved
    Fassy (who was just a tad too indulged by McQueen), Bruhl and Hanks and
    Farrell.

    The digusting excuse for filmmaking called Saving Mr. Banks will be luckly to get a single nomination in any category this year, let alone two in one.

    Also, double nominees in this category hasn’t happened since the 90’s. The last film to pull it off was Bugsy, and that was a huge co-frontrunner for Best Picture at the time. 

    I already think Hanks is getting snubbed, and I don’t think Farrell has a shot whatsoever.

    Chris Cooper in A:OC could be the under-the-radar contender to be Oscar nominated.  This category is always ripe for surprises.  He has the #1 votes of A:OC Supporters and sizeable Cast & Crew.  He has low profile but could be campaigning on the sideline.  Chris recently got a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Capri Film Festival.  Watch out for this guy … just saying !!!

    I don’t particularly even like Farrell – though In Bruges IS one of my all-time favorite films. But his work with the solemn little actress playing Emma Thompson as a child was surprisingly powerful. He made the relationship (and his daughter’s adoration of him) believable. Farrell managed to make the character so compelling and so charming (despite his fatal personal character defects), it made Emma Thompson’s motivation as an adult understandable – and THAT was a helluva stretch.

    I think Hanks’ll get in also because I think he’ll be excluded for the Best Actor nom.

    I never would have thought any of that possible if I hadn’t seen the film. Based on the reviews alone, I would never have guessed how affected I would be by Farrell’s relationship with the little Emma – and I’m no sentimental pushover either but a cynic through and through.

    Yeah, I loved Saving Mr. Banks, but if anyone gets in from that movie it will be Emma. Even though Farrell was arguably the best part of it. As of right now, I predict:

    1. Leto
    2. Fassbender
    3. Abdi
    4. Bruhl
    5. Cooper  

    What I think it should be:

    1. Leto – Dallas Buyers Club
    2. Hill – The Wolf of Wall Street
    3. Fassbender – 12 Years A Slave
    4. Cooper – The Place Beyond the Pines
    5. Abdi – Captain Phillips

    TPBTP was my personal favorite of Cooper’s roles this year. Miles ahead of Hustle for me, where I felt like the other four principals way outshined him. And I’d put Dane Dehaan in that lineup too for TPBTP but I know there’s no chance in hell of that.

    I also think that Hanks is out, but he can stay in conversation same as Jonah as someone who might have a slight chance if situation is better than excepted for his film. Im going with Leto, Fassbender, Barkhan, Cooper and Bruhl but i can switch any second to Gandolfini. I think that Cooper is going to be driven by popularity of his film and he looks safer to me than Bruhl an Gandolfini even though he missed the SAG.

    Bradley Cooper looks to me like classic “slap the stud” case. I don’t think he’ll be nommed. He might have just come off a nod, but it was for a performance that also had a lot more support. I also don’t know how much late release is really what kept him off SAG. Hustle did get Ensemble nod and something for Jennifer. Maybe his performance just didn’t cross over? He doesn’t have the precursor attention and acclaim he had last year (he actually even has a few mixed reviews). I think he has a better chance than hanks, but I think his chances are, at best, at the same level of Hill’s.

    “Snubbed” is not the word choice I would use when Tom Hanks is not nominated for Saving Mr. Banks.  It’s simply a performance that doesn’t deserve to be nominated and really shouldn’t be in the conversation.  If it happens, I will be very disappointed in the voters; their lineup for this category last year was another example of lazy and easy voting.

    How odd that Franco won NSFC & LA (and was a NY runner-up) when he was critically ignored for 127 Hours.

    I wonder if there’s any chance he’ll be nominated. Gandolfini and Bruhl don’t look all that strong to me. Of course, the subject matter, the type of character he plays, the box office, and the overall reviews don’t help him.
    At least the critics’ wins could maybe help him eventually land an Oscar win some other year?

    I actually liked the majority of last year’s nominees in this category. Perhaps with the exception of Alan Arkin (pardon me but that performance was passable). PSH and DeNiro gave brilliant performances and Tommy Lee Jones was the strongest link of the Lincoln’s cast (sorry Daniel Day-Lewis). Waltz was exceptional but did not deserve that oscar.

    To me Barkhad Abdi should take this Oscar. His was a co-lead role. I would love to see him nominated at the Oscars as a Leading Role (as he deserves) taking Hanks spot. Dreams apart, if Abdi is not the Academy’s taste I would love to see Cooper taking this for American Hustle. He’s so great in it.

    I can see Franco happening. He may be that ‘shocker’ nominee that takes one of the last two spots without any precursors. I mean…the critical support for him is baffling and a little surprising.
