Macy for Seabiscuit (I see biscuit, I eat it), Benicio Del Toro for 21 Jump Street (superb in an irritating movieso what else is new?), Alec Baldwin for The Cooler (a bad flick, but it's not his fault), Ken Watanabe for The Last Samurai ("Let me tell you how he lived. . . . "), Paul Bettany for Master and Commander (he's Jennifer Connelly's hubby. If he's nominated, can he still dump her on the way in?), the gang from Rings 3 (yeah, right, it's a movie about acting), Wentworth Miller for The Human Stain (can he pass for a nominee?), and Djimon Hounsou for In America (in doubtthough he does have a big screaming scene).
The nominees will be: Del Toro, Macy, Robbins, Sarsgaard, Watanabe.
