hmm....i'm thinking they'll try to nominate Mo'Nique in the lead category and totally shut out Gabourey Sibide because she's a newcomer. but it woudl eb nice if it went that way. while there are afew veterans on this list, that doens't always mean their performances that oscar-worthy (namely George Clooney, Meryl Streep, and Daniel Day Lewis). I don't even understand what is happenign in "Nine." I wuld be surprised if "Good Hair" snags a nom. I see "Brothers" isn't on thsi list. it looks kinda gripping to me. as for Christoph Waltz and Inglorious Basterds, i'm clearly the only person who thought both were just...ok.

@ Candice: I actually have Tobey Maguire at #9 for Best Supporting Actor ("Brothers"). I agree that the trailer looked gripping but it's hard to tell how it will do in the rest of the categories right now. It could be a sleeper though.
