MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY / Ron Woodroof – “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB” (Focus Features)
FOREST WHITAKER / Cecil Gaines – “LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER” (The Weinstein Company)
Oh boy! I am dreadfully behind because I haven't seen any of these films (yet). I would love to see any of these dudes win.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
CATE BLANCHETT / Jasmine – “BLUE JASMINE” (Sony Pictures Classics)
SANDRA BULLOCK / Ryan Stone – “GRAVITY” (Warner Bros. Pictures)
JUDI DENCH / Philomena Lee – “PHILOMENA” (The Weinstein Company)
MERYL STREEP / Violet Weston – “AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY” (The Weinstein Company)
EMMA THOMPSON / P.L. Travers – “SAVING MR. BANKS” (Walt Disney Pictures)
Usually I do not like to see Meryl Streep win because people have this obsession with her nominations and it's annoying. A Meryl Streep win is sooo boring. However, this year is a bit different because, from what I've seen, her role in August: Osage County looks to be amazing! And she isn't trying to play some romantic or young role, which I never find to be believable with her. That said, I'd love for Cate Blanchett or Sandra Bullock to win.

BARKHAD ABDI / Muse – “CAPTAIN PHILLIPS” (Columbia Pictures)
DANIEL BRÜHL / Niki Lauda – “RUSH” (Universal Pictures)

JAMES GANDOLFINI / Albert – “ENOUGH SAID” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
JARED LETO / Rayon – “DALLAS BUYERS CLUB” (Focus Features)
What an attractive group of men: Daniel Bruhl, Michael Fassbender, and Jared Leto. Mmm! I think it would be so awesome for Barkhad Abdi to win for his first acting role, but I think I really want Jared Leto to take it all!

MAGGIE SMITH / Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham – “DOWNTON ABBEY” (PBS)
KERRY WASHINGTON / Olivia Pope – “SCANDAL” (ABC)
Tough one. I think Claire Danes is amazeballs, but she's been winning everything. I like Maggie Smith, but she never shows up to the shows and that is boring. Maybe Kerry Washington? I like her.
