1. Daniel Day-Lewis-There Will Be Blood-Count on it.

2. George Clooney-Michael Clayton-The rest of these four spots could really go to any of the 5 additional contenders. Clooney, however, is the safest bet of that group.

3. Ryan Gosling-Lars and the Real Girl-He's scored every precursor he needs, essentially. I don't see why he wouldn't be included.

4. Emile Hirsch-Into the Wild-The buzz has been cut in half after the PGA snub, but I think he should make it in without much sweat.

5. Viggo Mortenson-Eastern Promises-He's received every precursor nod he all he needs is buzz. However, I am very attached to my theory that Johnny will be snubbed.

My predictions:

1. Daniel Day-Lewis: Almost a secure winner of his second Oscar...
2. George Clooney: Handsome man + Powerful star + Intersting role + Favoritism to the people
3. Johnny Depp: i think he'll be nominated instead Ryan Gosling because two facts:
-He's a star and an acclaim actor
-If Sweeney todd doesn't have many important nominations, he must to be be here...
4. Emile Hirsch: The American "breakthrough" of the year. Plus physical transformation and deglam factor
5. Viggo Mortensen: only big hope of "eastern promises"...

Ryan Gosling: Only actor who has precurssors and support for a nomination, but I think he hasn't for three facts:
-Last year nomination
-No so much Oscarish role
-He's not a big star like Depp or Clooney
