SAG Nominees: Best Actor in a Leading Role

My predictions: 5/5
Who’s missing: Golden Globe nominees Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine) and Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter), Javier Bardem (Biutiful)

After their mysterious absence at the Golden Globes, Jeff Bridges (True Grit) and Robert Duvall (Get Low) join the list of frontrunners Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Colin Firth (The King’s Speech), and James Franco (127 Hours). That complicates matters because the Globes had made it seem like Bridges and Duvall might not be as strong as they initially seemed and that maybe Gosling could take one of their spots. That’s still true now, but the Oscar race is definitely at least six wide, and we haven’t even seen Bardem anywhere yet.

Who could win? I’d say Firth takes this.
