    Can users add potential nominees to the prediction lists.  Jason Bateman was great in “The Gift”.  Seems like he deserves recognition for that performance.

    His performance was very good in overall solid movie. Nomination worthy? I don’t think so, but if he keeps getting role like this he will eventaly be on the Oscar radar.

    I thought he was amazing in it.  Many of the nominees currently on Gold Derby are for movies that haven’t even come out yet. Maybe there have been advance screenings…but if not, how do they know all of those performances will be great if they haven’t seen them yet.  And, what’s the harm of throwing Jason Bateman into the mix.

    Yes i agree with that. It is one the best perfromances this year in terms of what we have seen and i wouldn’t mind him being added to prediction center. However best actor race looks crowded as always, and though based just on trailers im rooting for Johnny.

    I just saw this movie over the weekend and enjoyed it much more than I expected to. I’m not sure I would say Bateman’s performance was Oscar-worthy, but I definitely thought it was a nice change of pace for the comedic actor. I was quite impressed with Joel Edgerton (who also wrote and directed the film). I haven’t seen too many films with him, but he seems to have a vast range as an actor.

    He gets my vote for best actor at this point.  I would love to see the scene where he is on the verge of breaking down as he defends himself in a speech to his wife when she finally confronts him as an Oscar clip.  Jason Bateman should have gotten a Golden Globe comedy nomination for This is Where I Leave You when he gave us a preview of his dramatic chops.

    Let me put it this way: Christoph Waltz was nominated for Big Eyes.
