2. Tommy
3. Viggo
4. George
5. Johnny

Finally! Thank you Louis. My predictions are...

1) Daniel Day-Lewis

2) Viggo Mortensen

3) Tommy Lee Jones

4) George Clooney

5) Johnny Depp

I hope I get at least one of those right. The only ones I really care about here are Daniel and Viggo.

A good year:

1. Daniel Day-Lewis.
2. Tommy Lee Jones.
3. Johnny Depp.
4. Viggo Mortensen.

5. George Clooney (I know you don't like him very much and he wasn't remarkable at all in this also unremarkable film).

Really enjoy your blog. Have you decided to pass on supporting actors for the time being?

Viggo is my pick.

I think I'm going to revise. Louis, you usually don't like over the top performances, and love very subtle ones, Robert Duvall in Tender Mercies being the most recent example. Therefore, I'm going to let my heart overrule my head, and say Viggo will get the win.

Not really sure, but Day Lewis is impressive, as is Clooney and Depp, haven't seen the others.

I've seen DDL, Clooney, and Depp and am not a huge fan of Day-Lewis' performance and find him quite over the top, and kind of similar to his role in Gangs of New York, which I also didn't love. Clooney is solid, and I sort of relish Depp's performance for it's sense of fun. I don't have any huge opinions any which way, though.

Houndtang: Yes I will be just focusing on Best Actor, I will not come back to Supporting until I finish this category.
