Default And the Oscar goes to...Best Actor



Of the 12 nominations that went the way of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln," only one win is a true certainty. But it's a big one. Daniel Day-Lewis has won essentially every single precursor out there, and it's hard to imagine anyone not voting for his remarkable work portraying the 16th President of the United States -- even if it doing so will help make him the first actor ever to win three Oscars in this category. But if someone is going to manage that feat, why not Day-Lewis, who is largely considered one of the greatest actors of all-time. And, really, who could beat him? The performances of his assumed closest challengers Hugh Jackman and Bradley Cooper seem so very insignificant up against Day-Lewis.

Nominees and predictions below.

The nominees:

Bradley Cooper in "Silver Linings Playbook"
Daniel Day-Lewis in "Lincoln"
Hugh Jackman in "Les MisÚrables"
Joaquin Phoenix in "The Master"
Denzel Washington in "Flight"


Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis
Could win: Bradley Cooper
Should win: Day-Lewis or Joaquin Phoenix

Will win: Daniel Day-Lewis
Could win: Hugh Jackman
My pick would be: Bradley Cooper, although Daniel Day-Lewis was absolutely incredible. Also, I don't think there is a chance in Hell that Joaquin Phoenix wins because of his history with award shows, regardless of his performance (which I haven't seen).
