Last night I put my annual Oscar-nomination predictions feature to bed (it’ll be in this Friday’s issue of EW), and narrowing the four acting races down to five contenders each meant leaving off a few very worthy candidates who may end up getting overlooked this year.

Without revealing my exact predictions just yet, I’ll give you a taste by naming a handful of performers I’m predicting will be snubbed this year. In many of these cases, I hope I’m wrong.

Best Actor
Richard Jenkins, The Visitor
Leonardo DiCaprio, Revolutionary Road

How about you? Which top contenders do you predict will barely miss the cut on Jan. 22? Share your thoughts below.
