CASEY AFFLECK, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES
HAL HOLBROOK, INTO THE WILD
TOM WILKINSON, MICHAEL CLAYTON
JAVIER BARDEM, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
TOMMY LEE JONES, NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
My predictions: Proud to say 5/5.
I am happy that I correctly predicted the inclusion of Tommy Lee Jones, guessing that SAG would think like they have in the past with Chris Cooper ("Seabiscuit") and Don Cheadle ("Crash"). Hal Holbrook is now officially in the running, which is great. Besides Wilkinson, who I usually like but not in this role, this is a pretty great list.
Who will win? I think Affleck takes this one because two actors from "No Country" are up and that gives ihm an exciting boost to win the Oscar.
Oscar lineup? I think this only solidifies my earlier predictions, where Jones gets replaced by Philip Seymour Hoffman for "Charlie Wilson's War". Though I really would love to see Ed Harris for "Gone Baby Gone" instead of Wilkinson.
