I want Brad Pitt to win, but everyone is saying this is George Clooney's year, but it would of been nice to see Ryan Gosling nominated.
Mhope, I agree with you about Ryan Gosling getting nominated. I didn't see Drive but it sounded like a unique concept. However, I guess some of the voters still want a little more. I don't think Brad Pitt will win. Sports films don't do that well during Oscar season and this one was even more unconventional so I'm not sure about that. I think if he wins it will be for a more traditional Oscar friendly film in the coming years.
I think Brad Pitt should get the Oscar this year! He has done some amazing movies over the last few years that the Academy has past him up for other notable actors. I think it's time to acknowledge all the accomplishments of Brad Pitt both on screen and off screen with all the humanitarian work he does for other countries and New Orleans. This is Brad's year!
I think I agree with you on this. Pitt gets passed over because he's so good looking. I know this sounds off the wall but to whom much is given, much is expected. He came from nowhere, midwestern boy, whereas Clooney comes from Hollywood royalty. Not saying I don't love Clooney, too. But Brad needs a win because his rolls are so diverse. He takes chances. I think it's time for Hollywood to get over the Pitt Anniston breakup bias.
Can't resist this thread.
I hope Gary Oldman gets it for George Smiley in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. He is a screen veteran, and it is the first time he has been nominated.
Other notable films are: (I haven't listed all 72)
Sirius Black in Harry Potter
Lt Jim Gordon in The Dark Knight/Batman Begins/The Dark Knight Rises
Dr SMith - Lost in Space
Ivan Korshunov - Air Force One bad guy
Drexl Spivey - True Romance
Dracula - Dracula
Lee Harvey Oswald - JFK
Joe Orton - Prick Up Your Ears
Sid Viscious - Sid and Nancy
He is always a solid performer, and George Smiley truly brought him out. Though you will mostly remember him as Sirius Black I expect. On a similar note, it would be nice to see Alan Rickman get a look in one day. Another super actor.
Gary Oldman is a gifted actor. Every since I saw him in Sid and Nancy, I've been a fan. I also loved him in Rosencrantz and Gilderstern (sic) are dead...But I still personally believe, after seeing Moneyball, that Brad Pitt really should get it this year. George Clooney already won an Oscar, does he really need another one?
I go for the underdog: Jean Dujardin. But I'd be very surprise.
Yeah good point. The French hardly ever get a look in, despite coming up with some interesting cinema.

It will be Oscar time soon. Should Obama receive a nomination?How about “Best actor in a leading role” for his performance as President?He is undoubtedly a talented salesman and actor, but other actors have to learn...
