George Clooney-THE DESCENDANTS
Leonardo Dicaprio- J.EDGAR
Gary Oldman-TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY
Jean DuJardin-THE ARTIST
These are my predictions for now. Clooney and Dicaprio are sure bets for a nomination. Fassbender is still up in the air, but I included him at least for now. We will have to see how well MONEYBALL does before considering Brad Pitt. The many differences of opinions on DRIVE probably leave Ryan Gosling out, but IDES OF MARCH could put him on the list. Christopher Plummer in BARRYMORE could be a dark horse.
