Among the most heated races at the Golden Globes are the acting categories. Denzel Washingtonand Daniel Day-Lewis are in a virtual dead-heat for Best Actor in a drama, while newly Oscar-nominated Bradley Cooper (The Silver Linings Playbook) squares off opposite Les Mis frontrunner Hugh Jackman for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy.
On Sunday, January 13, the awards will be handed out, but who will win? Who should win? Let Celebuzzhelp you figure that out with our guide to the Best Actor nominees.
Just like we did for Best Actress in both drama and musical/comedy, we breakdown each of the talented actors nominated, provide an overview of their performance and the bottom line on their chances of winning.
