2013 Oscar Nominees Profiled: Best Actor | Denzel Washington
Denzel Washington

Film: Flight

Why He Will Win

1  A two-time past winner (Best Actor for Training Day; Best Supporting Actor for Glory), Denzel has the pedigree and poise to be a credible candidate.
2 His performance in Flight is terrific: he’s credible as both life-wrecking alcoholic and life-saving hero.
3 Who doesn’t love Denzel Washington? C’mon, people!

 

 Why He Won't Win

1  The film itself doesn’t seem to be so highly regarded, which might hurt his chances.
2 Can an alcoholic beat a President, a bipolar sufferer, a rage monster and a singing convict?
3 Daniel Day-Lewis.
