Denzel Washington – Flight
DDL wins if Jackman isn't nominated. If Jackman is nominated, it's a race. THAT IS THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF HBT.
Also I guess Denzel COULD win, but Flight being a sort of weird, disjointed movie could hurt him.
DDL has been giving great performances in classics/masterpieces since A ROOM WITH A VIEW even if he rarely makes a movie. He should have won for GANGS OF NEW YORK. Not sure how many masterpices Streep has made in the last 25 years. Adaptation, give me a break. Music of the heart? Doubt? Iron Lady? Prada? One fine thing? Madison county?
Also, since Kushner wrote DDL's latest, one would be remiss not to mention Angels in America, Streep and Kushner's greatest work.

and they never let me down. Try to get ‘em away from me and I’ll eat you alive.
I'm confused... Is Streep blah or is she a fantastic actress? LeonardShelby is contradicting himself.
Can we leave Streep's filmography alone? :chriscrocker:
If any girl can win Best Actor, it's Meryl.
Honestly until we get a read from Jackman, I think DDL is the favorite so far.

Why are we talking about Streep in the Best Actor thread? Oh. Right. I forgot again, that on AD as the number of posts in a thread increases, the likelihood of a thread becoming about Actresses approaches 1.
