2013 Oscar Nominees Profiled: Best Actor | Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin Phoenix

Film: The Master

Why He Will Win

1  Phoenix is extraordinarily good in The Master, fury dripping from every pore and animal instincts threatening to burst out at any moment.
2 If Hollywood wants to look hip, cool and edgy, he’s the guy to go for.
3 It might discourage him from further Method experimentations with rap, a result devoutly to be wished.

 

 Why He Won't Win

1  The film was not much seen and not much loved by Academy voters.
2 Phoenix hasn’t exactly been campaigning hard for a win, avoiding much of the pre-Oscars hoopla.
3 Daniel Day-Lewis.
