Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy
Nominees: Christian Bale (American Hustle), Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Leonardo DiCaprio (The Wolf of Wall Street), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Joaquin Phoenix (Her)
Predictions: Many critics celebrated Bruce Dern's wonderful adventure-drama, where he plays a booze-addled father who goes on a road trip with his estranged son. Other slept on Oscar Isaac's pre-Bob Dylan performance. The smart money is on Leonardo DiCaprio though. It's his 10th nomination and he's due for another win with his stellar performance as Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's crime-comedy pic.
