My pick is Langella, although I haven't seen them all. My predictions:

1. Rourke
2. Langella
3. Penn
4. Jenkins
5. Pitt

Wow, not a year I'm particularly fond of. Rourke and Penn were both overrated, Langella was solid, haven't seen Jenkins (though I have a feeling I'll love him), and Pitt was in a role that everyone can immediately call gimmicky, but I guess he'd be my pick.

Yay! so glad you picked this year, I think Penn or Rourke will get your vote but Jenkins is pretty underrated in his performance

I guess I would go with Rourke or Langella, I was quite pissed about the actual winner.

YES!!!!!!! I like sean Penn personally...

But I'm sure Rourke will win, and I have no complaints, he was amazing as well..

I always remember jenkins dinner table scene with the mother how he talks of having no life.

rourke for the win though!!

Mickey Rourke will probably win this, I'm almost sure you will not pick Penn like the Academy did.
