  • Best Film
    Oscar Nominations

    BEST PICTURE:

    Slumdog Millionaire

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    Milk

    Frost/Nixon

    The Reader

    Oscar bet: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" may have the most nominations, but all the passion is for "Slumdog Millionaire", which has beaten its rival in most competitions so far.
  • Best Director
    Oscar Nominations
    DIRECTING:

    Danny Boyle, "Slumdog Millionaire"

    David Fincher, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

    Ron Howard, "Frost/Nixon

    Gus Van Sant, "Milk"

    Stephen Daldry, "The Reader"

    Oscar bet: Boyle is the heavy favourite in this race, but Van Sant and Fincher have lots of Oscar fans too.
  • Best Actress
    Oscar Nominations
    ACTRESS IN LEADING ROLE:

    Anne Hathaway, "Rachel Getting Married"

    Angelina Jolie, "Changeling"

    Melissa Leo, "Frozen River"

    Meryl Streep, "Doubt"

    Kate Winslet, "The Reader"

    Oscar bet: Jolie's role is not one of her best, the Academy has acknowledged the performances of underdogs Leo and Hathaway, so it comes down to a contest between the ever-popular Streep and Winslet. After six nominations it's probably time for Winslet to get her due.
  • Best Actor

    ACTOR IN A LEADING ROLE:

    Richard Jenkins, "The Visitor"

    Frank Langella, "Frost/Nixon"

    Sean Penn, "Milk"

    Brad Pitt, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

    Mickey Rourke, "The Wrestler"

    Oscar bet: Hollywood loves a good comeback and they don't get much better than Mickey Rourke's. Hollywood also loves Sean Penn and a good political drama. So the race is between these two.
