Will Colin be crowned 'King' or are Franco's 'Days' of waiting over?
James Franco, "127 Hours"
Pro: Franco is an absolute lock for a nomination for bringing Aron Ralston's stunning journey to the big screen. It's the best performance of his career. Critic's awards will solidify his nomination.
Con: The question isn't the nod, but the win. The more stories that come out of older audience members fainting during the harrowing story, the fewer Academy members of a certain age will see the film. Luckily, enough of the younger set will screen the picture to make sure he's rewarded with a nod.
