BEST ACTOR
Seeing Silver Linings Playbook confirmed that Bradley Cooper is a real threat in this category, seeing Argo confirmed that Ben Affleck is not, and seeing Lincoln surprisingly revealed that Day-Lewis may not be the lock for a win that we all expected. It's a great performance, but not as showy as you might anticipate, and the competition around him is so strong that he might easily be overshadowed. Being a recent winner ought to lock up his nomination, but will make it that much harder for him to win.
