Dave Karger sizes up the Best Actor race

Predicted Winner Jamie Foxx, Ray
Possible Upsets Clint Eastwood, Million Dollar Baby
No Way Don Cheadle, Hotel Rwanda; Johnny Depp, Finding Neverland; Leonardo DiCaprio, The Aviator

Jamie Foxx is such a frontrunner at this point that there doesn?t even seem to be much of a backlash against him. True, if he makes the audience sing ”Hey…ho…” with him during one more acceptance speech, he?ll certainly begin to wear out his welcome. But that aside, his performance during the entire awards season has been easily the most entertaining. Oh, and the performance in the movie wasn?t too shabby either. Unless Million Dollar fever pushes Eastwood to one of the biggest upsets in history, Foxx will have something to sing about this Sunday.
