Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama
Jeff Bridges, "Crazy Heart"
George Clooney, "Up in the Air"
Colin Firth, "A Single Man"
Morgan Freeman, "Invictus"
Tobey Maguire, "Brothers"
Who Will Win: Jeff Bridges
Who Should Win: Jeff Bridges
Upset Contenders: This is a real tough one, Bridges is a very slight favorite here over Clooney. However, the "Up in the Air" star is a two-time winner and his celebrity factor may provide the win which technically would qualify as an upset. The deserving Firth could also win in a bizarre split vote between Clooney and Bridges, but that would be a true surprise.
