Academy Awards 2012 (Best Lead Actor) Predictions

Updated - December 10th


I think if anyone knows the tradition of Oscars, its always too early to guess. but i have my owns favorites, predictions and some surprise ones. there are few actors we haven't seen their movies yet but they are most likely to get nominated some of them are festival winners and critics buzzed so its a mixture of all that.
Also visit my list on IMDB !

Color Scheme:

- Green: Strong Contenders according to me.
- Blue: Good Chance for Nomination.
- Orange: Somewhere in the middle right now.

Here are my predictions for now:

1. George Clooney - THE DESCENDANTS

2. Brad Pitt - MONEYBALL

3. Jean DuJardin - THE ARTIST

(These 3 are perfect locks for the Oscars without a doubt.)


4. Gary Oldman - TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY

5. Michael Fassbender - SHAME

6. Leonardo DiCaprio - J.EDGAR

(Things get a but confusing here, Fassbender is a Critics and Festival loved actor from a Indie movie that might get stucked a bit with Oscars so it would be a fight between him and DiCaprio to get that final spot, DiCaprio is from a movie that got negative reviews.)

7. Michael Shannon - TAKE SHELTER

8. Woody Harrelson - RAMPART

9. Joseph Gordon-Levitt - 50/50

10. Ryan Gosling - THE IDES OF MARCH


Other Possibilities:

1. Peter Mullan - TYRANNOSAUR
2. Ralph Fiennes - CORIOLANUS
3. Michael Fassbender - A DANGEROUS METHOD
4. Ryan Gosling - DRIVE
5. Daniel Craig - THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO
