Oscar 2014: Meet the Best Actor nominees
The Academy awards are scheduled to take place on March 3.
The most probable Best Actress winner for this year at the Oscars may be a nobrainer but it's the Best Actor category where all the predication action is happening.
Will it be The Wolf of Wall Street's Leonardo DiCaprio (whose shockingly high count of Oscar snubs has people wondering if the Academy has anything against the talented actor)?
Or is this the year of Dallas Buyers' Club lead Matthew and his 'McConaissance' (a term coined in the wake of Matthew McConaughey, for the first time, taking his career seriously)?
There's also the indomitable Bruce Dern (Nebraska), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) and Christian Bale (American Hustle).
Oh, the suspense!
