Who’s your bet? Is your favorite actor here? What do you think about them? Oh, and by the way, Happy Holidays from The Final Oscar!


  1. For lead I have seen both of DiCaprio’s performances which were both good, although the characters were strikingly similar with their martial problems. He probably will not be nominated and unfortunately Jesse Eisenberg will be who si the only other one I have seen.

    Lead Actress I have only seen Portman who certainly was something.

    In supporting actress I think Mila Kunis has more of chance than Hershey. I did think Hershey gave the better performance though. I thought Cotillard was fine.

    In supporting actor I thought Garfield will be rather deserving of a nomination or a win, Hammer I thought gave a suitable performance, but Timberlake I thought was just bad.


  2. I saw Portman who is great. Kunis will probably get in, but I think it’s a little odd to nominate her. Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t deserve a nomination, but she’ll get in anyway. I have to rewatch The Kids Are Alright, so I can’t say which one I prefer, but I’m hoping Moore can make i.

    Hailee Steinfeld does not deserve a nomination, and I don’t think she will.
