I can't wait to see which other names you'll add to this list, but I can tell you that, of the 7 you've got so far, 3 will be on my list as well. I hope you get a chance to see Michael Shannon's work in Take Shelter.

And I was very happy to see that you loved 50/50 so much. :)

Five Bucks that Ryan Gosling is at the Oscars, because this is his year, and he's done really well.

I agree about George Clooney - The movie was up and down, but his performance was magnificent -
and the most amazing thing about Andy Serkis' performance is that even after two viewings there wasn't a moment in the movie where I could tell a human was playing Caeser - Flabbergasting special effects.

@Ryan P, so I guess you have to pay your 5 bucks since Ryan Gosling was nominated for exactly nothing!

Did you see Crazy Stupid Love? Ryan Gosling's performance was great in that too, I thought.

Shailene Woodley for The Descendants ,
Leonardo DiCaprio for J. Edgar ,
Nick Nolte for Warrior ,
Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
