    Provided it gives us ‘naysayers’ everything we’ve been wanting from him, then, yes. I think he tends to go too big and grand rather than more naturalistic.

    althgouh many think of him as one of the greatest actors of today, i believe it’s too soon for the academy to give him a third oscar. however, is still daniel day-lewis and the academy loves him… 

    my prediction is still Phoenix in a great comeback role.

    I think it could. Lewis has been nominated 4 times for an Academy Award, all of those nominations for Best Actor, and has won twice. I think it is still too early to say who will win, Joaquin Phoenix or Lewis. Right now, my money is on Lewis. We’ll have to see if I change my bet once the critic awards start rolling in.

    This is going to be a tough race to predict. Joaquin Phoenix and DDL are the frontrunners, but it doesn’t mean they can necessarily win. Here are the potential Best Actor winners for next year:

    • Daniel Day-Lewis wins for playing a real-life character in one of his best performances to date and makes his Oscar total a lucky 3.
    • Joaquin Phoenix wins for a power-house performance in “The Master” by Paul Thomas Anderson, one the greatest living filmmakers
    • Denzel Washington wins for a power-house performance in “Flight” which will also make his Oscar total 3. He will further solidify the theories that he is one of th greatest African-American actors and will receive much support and possibly a win for a film that will quite frankly be underrated. And as Tom has pointed out, alcoholics go down well with the Academy.

    My best bet is that it is down to Lewis vs. Phoenix vs. Washington. I would be happy with any of these men, but I’m rooting for Day-Lewis just because There Will Be Blood has the greatest performance in film history.

    Streep took “forever’ to win a 3rd oscar
    giving great performances over the years..
    DDL might give the best performance of
    the year but i think PHOENIX AND HAWKES
    will be the front runners..The Academy tends to
    eat up roles with afflictions or characters who are
    flawed…so a biography, although of our greatest
    president, might not do the trick for DDL..

    I agree, taking merit out of it (similar to the Academy) I think Phoenix and Hawkes will come out the frontrunners.. With SO MUCH being made about crowning Streep with three last year, I find it difficult to think they will put another one in her company so soon.. Field, Lange, Washington, Day-Lewis may have to settle with two (how awful!)

    Could he? Absolutely he’s DDL. But i dont think he will though. Alot depends who has the momentum right before votes are to be turned in. I think John Hawkes could easily surprise people and take this years best actor oscar out from under DDL and DW. Phoenix like The Master is fading, plus polozaring opinions don’t help his chances either. He can win all the critics awards and i still don’t think he’ll win. Because critics arent the ones voting for the oscar winners.

    If Day-Lewis deserves a third Oscar for the performance, then he should get it.

    BTW, not a fan of Joaquin Phoenix, although I did enjoy him as “Victim of Gruesome S&M Murderer” in 8MM.

    No, if it took Streep and Nicholson over a decade(s) to win their 3rd Oscar, what makes people think DDL will win his when he just recently won 5 years ago?

    Phoenix, Hawkes, and Washington stand a better shot at winning.
