David Fincher, "The Social Network"
Pro: Another iconic and groundbreaking American filmmaker, the man behind "Seven," "Panic Room," "Zodiac," "Fight Club" and "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has received the strongest accolades of his career for "Social Network." He should easily follow up his nomination in this category for "Button" with a second nod for "Network."
Con: The bigger question is whether he can win.
