    Brad Pitt, Best Actor
    Philip Seymour Hoffman, Best Supp. Actor
    Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay (Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin wrote the script = automatic win!)

    How about Jonah Hill’s chances?

    Read Moneyball 3 times. Hate the A’s, but I love how they managed to win. Very excited about this one.

    Too much Pitt, not enough Hoffman.

    “This has 5 % written all over it.”

    I have a feeling this one is going to catch on.

    My friend who saw it at a test screening said that Hill will definitely be in contention for a supporting nomination, and that Pitt could very well get a leading nomination. He also said the script was incredibly sharp and will likely get a nomination in the adapted category.

    Phillip Seymour Hoffman as A’s Manager Art Howe – that should be interesting.

    Is Pitt having a great year or what? A possible double-nomination, even?

    Speaking English: The Academy rules do not allow an actor to receive two nominations in the same category. I would guess Pitt’s performances in both Malick’s film and here are leading performances. Or were you refering to his (supporting) performance in some other film?

    No, I was referring to his supporting performance in “The Tree of Life,” something I believe is much agreed upon.
