Christoph Waltz very easily will win, its not even a close battle everybody, I know it, and you know it, Arkin, De Niro and Lee Jones are fine but nothing special, Hoffman was solid.

1. Christoph Waltz
2. Philip Seymour Hoffman
3. Tommy Lee Jones
4. Robert De Niro
5. Alan Arkin

Waltz wins in a landslide. Hoffman is also quite good. De Niro I feel would grow on me if I were to see him again. Jones was good but not great. Arkin was nothing too special.

My guess:

1. Waltz
2. Hoffman
3. Jones
4. DeNiro
5. Arkin

I'm still debating puting Waltz in leading or supporting on my own ballot.

Also: HAHA IN YOUR FACE PHOENIX HATERS.

Wow that was immature. Still, tough break. For you.

=) I am looking forward to the review of Joaquin Phoenix, I expect him to be destroyed.

I think Louis will love Phoenix, and he was tremendous. Im rooting for Hoffman or Waltz.

I've seen only Arkin and Hoffman (last week). The other three movies haven't yet been distribuited in Italy.
Of the two easy win for PSH. I liked Arkin, but isn't nothing special (I preferred Cranston in Argo).

I'm a little bit sad that Leo wasn't nomineted. One of these actors will return home with a second gold (third for DeNiro, but I don't think)

Hi!

1. Christoph Waltz
2. Philip Seymour Hoffman
3. Tommy Lee Jones
4. Alan Arkin
5. Robert De Niro

I have only seen Waltz and Jones so far. I would easily put either Samuel L. Jackson or Leonardo DiCaprio (or Javier Bardem) in Jones' place. Interesting nomination announcements, I must say. I'm very happy for Quvenzhané Wallis, I thought she was brilliant in Beasts, any thoughts on that? And Benh Zeitlin, while I'm very happy for him, but WTF? :D
This should be a very interesting Oscar night this year.

Aloha

Only seen Waltz. That's all I need to see. He's definitely got my vote.

1. Waltz
2. Jones
3. Hoffman
4. De Niro
5. Arkin

RatedRStar said...

I thought Wallis was great, Riva was too, Im happy tht Zeitlin got nominated, makes the oscars more interesting and unpredictable.

I thought Jones and De Niro were both great, Arkin was absolutely nothing special. I haven't seen Waltz or Hoffman
My predictions:
1. Waltz
2. Hoffman
3. De Niro
4. Jones
5. Arkin

Michael Patison said...

Also, I just wanted to say that I really like the Jones nomination because he's an alumnus of my high school.

Doug Grenier said...

I haven't seen De Niro's performance yet, but the others are ranked as follows:

1. Waltz
2. Hoffman
3. Arkin
4. Jones

Pity DiCaprio wasn't nominated.

joe burns said...

Why is everyone predicting Waltz? I haven't seen him yet, but have you said you've loved him before?

I'll predict Hoffman for fun!

1. Hoffman
2. Waltz
3. De-Niro
4. Jones
5. Arkin

Waltz will win. Of the three I've seen, TLJ is probably my favorite. He's really growing on me just like his movie (save for DDL, I still don't get the fuss about him).

1.Waltz
2.Hoffman
3.TLJ
4.DeNiro
5.Arkin

houndtang said...

interestingly all 5 of these actors have won this award before (well Hoffman won best actor but still)
