Oscars: The Lead Actor race

As the Academy Awards sent out their ballots this past Monday, Oscar Predictions were recently updated, and pundits attempt to wrap their heads around the state of the race, the term “lock” is being thrown around like popcorn. The Lead Actor race, especially stacked with talent has all but one assured nomination for Daniel Day-Lewis waiting in the wings.

As I mentioned on this week’s Power Hour, the category reminds me of the 2005 season when nine of the world’s finest actors were battling for five spots. Don Cheadle, Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood, and Jamie Foxx would fill the Lead Actor lineup with Paul Giamatti, a presumed lock in one of the Best Picture frontrunners, Sideways (2004), being left off.

Other notable omissions were Javier Bardem for The Sea Inside, Jim Carrey for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Liam Neeson for Kinsey, all worthy for citations. This season is bringing up a lot of talk for the infamous “fifth spot,” a term coined for four locks in any respective group of the Academy Awards with one being available to a respective candidate.
