George Clooney -- Michael Clayton
Daniel Day-Lewis -- There Will Be Blood
James McAvoy - Atonement
Viggo Mortensen -- Eastern Promises
Denzel Washington --American Gangster
Predicted Winner: Daniel Day-Lewis -- There Will Be Blood
Not much of a race here. The Cinematical staff (indeed much of the film-watching world in general) thinks that Mr. Day-Lewis is a dead-solid lock to win the Globe, the Oscar, and even the vaunted People's Choice. (As if "the people" want to see a three-hour movie about oil.) Even if There Will Be Blood (somehow) leaves you cold, there's no denying that DDL's performance is a thing of thespianic beauty.
Now it's your turn to vote ...
