You Pick the Oscar Winner: Best Actor

Posted by Derrick Deane on February 14, 2013

Daniel Day-Lewis has won every major award leading up to Oscar night and if he were eligible for a Spirit Award, he'd probably win that too.

But does that mean fellow nominees Bradley Cooper, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington and Joaquin Phoenix should just kick back and enjoy the comedic stylings of host Seth MacFarlane? Probably.

Cooper and Jackman have won acting awards when they haven't been up against DDL, but the Oscars don't have a best actor category for comedies and musicals. Not yet anyway.

So jump over to our Ballot Box, select DDL and then enter in your selections for the rest of the categories. You could win a pair of movie tickets, which frankly have better odds than anybody not named Daniel Day-Lewis winning this category.

The Academy Awards air on ABC on February 24 at 4 p.m. PST/7 p.m. EST.
