SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Leading Role

The competition: Bradley Cooper’s temperamental former substitute teacher (Silver Linings Playbook), Daniel Day-Lewis’ Abraham Lincoln (Lincoln), John Hawkes’ curious man in an iron lung (The Sessions), Hugh Jackman’s Jean Valjean (Les Miserables), and Denzel Washington’s alcoholic pilot (Flight).

For your information: Day-Lewis is the defending champ in this category, winning both times he was previously nominated in this race. He also holds the record he might break as the only actor to win two awards in this category. Despite being the recipient of two Oscars, Washington lost both of his previous individual acting SAG bids. Hawkes was nominated two years ago for “Winter’s Bone,” and this is the first mention for Cooper and Jackman, both of whom are nominated along with their ensembles (Day-Lewis is too).

Who should win: Hawkes, especially since he got snubbed for an Oscar nomination

Who will win: Day-Lewis
