    Why would Brad Pitt do that?

    I wonder if he will pull off a Mo’Nique or Mark Rylance type of situation.

    He’s been in the business for a long time – I suppose it’s possible he’s just ‘over it’. Even without campaigning, he’s still very likely to get in, he probably realises this and wants to avoid all that comes along with it.

    Could be
    Also could be he wanted a “lead” billing in OUATIH.
    Afterall he is as much of a lead in it as DiCaprio is if not more.

    It’s possible, but I figure that by not campaigning the studio would have final say in placement. They’d easily go supporting on his behalf as he’s the assumed front runner, at least for a nomination. If he wanted recognition in lead, it arguably makes more sense for him to actively campaign. I just don’t think he cares (good for him!).

    Pitt is easily the favourite to win even without campaigning. He’s one of the few people in the business who don’t have to kiss any asses.

    Well that’s unexpected. I actually feel like Hanks might have a chance to win this now if he campaigns hard. Still predicting Pitt for now though.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I really can’t see Hanks winning a third, even if supporting. After being overlooked several times he’d probably just be happy to  receive a nomination this time round.</p>

    Please not another Oscar for Tom Hanks. It’s enough

    You say that like Hank’s prior two wins weren’t wonderfully deserving.

    People forget that Hanks doesnt campaign either. He would campaign for Rhys first before himself.

    Well if that’s the case then Pitt’s still sweeping, unless someone else emerges as a surprise contender (Dafoe or Pacino perhaps).

    Fine, I’ll do it: they weren’t. Those Oscars should have gone to Hopkins and Newman/Travolta.

    If anyone should’ve beaten Hanks those years then it’s Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman. Both of them would’ve been fantastic winners (I get the feeling Neeson was a close runner up), but Hanks earned those Oscars. I’m happy with both wins, and I believe most people are too.
