Will Colin be crowned 'King' or are Franco's 'Days' of waiting over?
Ryan Gosling, "Blue Valentine"
Pro: An indie industry favorite, Gosling has consistently delivered strong work and his devastating portrayal of a man passionately attempting to save his marriage may be his best performance to date.
Con: As fantastic as it is, "Valentine" is a borderline movie for the Academy to even pop in their screener. Gosling seems more like a lock for an Indie Spirit nomination and quite possibly, a Saturday afternoon win.
