    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx It's gonna be a jam-packed category for Best Actor, that's for sure. I'm coming out with a preliminary list of Oscar contenders (by category) each month leading up to the Oscars starting this weekend. I'll tag you in it if you like.. :)

    @thedude-abides -- Haven't seen the trailer yet, but it seems like Leo has been more than on his game for a while now. Soon after his (phenomenal) performance in Django Unchained, he delivers another fantastic performance in The Great Gatsby. And this is coming from someone that didn't even like that latter. He'll probably(but hopefully not) give yet another great performance, only to be snubbed, yet again.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Probably more than a handful. All I know is, Leo better at least get nominated for Wall Street..

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Agreed. I think most people agree DiCaprio gave the better supporting performance in Django. Before nominations were announced, I had Hoffman and DiCaprio as numbers 1 & 2 in my supporting actor predictions.

    @thedude-abides -- No problem. Same here, man. Hell, even Leo would've been a better candidate. I love Christoph Waltz, and he gave a really good performance, but it was nowhere near the aforementioned two.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Thanks, man. And yeah, Hoffman is the man. I thought he should've won the Oscar last year, but whatever.

    @thedude-abides -- No doubt. I still can't believe an actor as good as Hoffman is even in this, let alone giving what seems to be another great performance. That man will go down as one of the greatest actors of all-time.

    Awesome avatar, by the way.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Lol. Hell no. But with Lawrence, Hoffman, and now Moore, I think it's safe to say the cast is more than respectable.
