Yeah, I can't believe I'm saying this, but for the moment Cooper is in second place I think.
DDL is winning so easily, especially now that the 2-5 position guys are all feeling vulnerable.
*The Academy will probably elect these actors:
Joaquin Phoenix (Wonder if his interview where he expressed not the most lovely things about campaigning hurt his chances)
John Hawkes (the man suffered permanent physical/internal damage for the role. Hope he gets some recognition)
*I want these actors (for now):
*Wildcard: I know this is extremely unlikely to happen but Logan Lerman shocked me in 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'. I had no clue he was such a good actor.
I'm starting to think that Cooper will win the Globe, and that he's a lock for an Oscar nomination.
I guess Jackman is now vulnerable?
Can Cooper and Lawrence pull an As Good as It Gets this year?
Obviously I'm kidding. But I'm glad to see that more people here are predicting him.
Remember when everyone bashed Dirk for suggesting Les Miz might flop and Hugh Jackman might lose the comedy Globe? Well....
A few days ago I asked "Is it possible that Cooper defeats Jackman for the Globe? Or does the HFPA's love for starry, lavish, high-budget productions make that impossible?"
This category is starting to look oddly weak. I don't see a lot of passion for Hawkes, Washington, or Cooper. Phoenix seems to want people to dislike him. Will DDL just bulldoze everyone on his 3rd way to the podium and make this another Best Actress 2006 - where the same 5 people showed up everywhere, but the same person won everything? Queen Elizabeth & President Lincoln are both Very Big Biopic Roles.

Meryl on Oscars: Y’see these little babies? These are my best f***ing friends
and they never let me down. Try to get ‘em away from me and I’ll eat you alive.

Ann Dowd has a better chance of getting a Best Actor nod than Jake Gyllenhaal.
I mean, that would be awesome, but Gyllenhaal is unfortunately not in contention.
