Oscar Buzz: Who Will Get Nominated?

Best Actor Buzz

By DAVID WEINER

December 30, 2012

The Buzz: It looks like previous winner Daniel Day-Lewis has a lock in this category as Lincoln, but John Hawkes just may pull off an upset with an Academy-fave performance as a handicapped individual in The Sessions, which is also based on a true story (you know, like that hilariously un-PC diatribe by Robert Downey Jr.'s Kirk Lazarus in Tropic Thunder).

Who Will Get Nominated: Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln), Denzel Washingto (Flight), Hugh Jackman (Les Miserables), John Hawkes (The Sessions), Joaquin Phoenix (The Master)

Who Should Get Nominated But Won't: Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook), Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained), Jack Black (Bernie), Daniel Craig (Skyfall), Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi), Bill Murray (Hyde Park on Hudson), Matthew McConaughey (Killer Joe)
