James Gandolfini - "Enough Said"
Pros: The iconic late actor has earned an Emmy, a Golden Globe, a SAG Award and landed a Tony nomination, but never earned an Oscar nod. There would absolutely be no shame in posthumously awarding Gandolfini one for his great work in "Enough Said," especially considering his impressive list of under-appreciated movie roles over the past 20 years.
Cons: "Enough Said" is a solid art house hit for Fox Searchlight, but can the mini-major remind everyone of Gandolfini's splendid work come December?
