George Clooney, 'The Descendants'

Category: Best Actor
Nominations/Wins: With big wins as the Golden Globe and Critcs' Choice Awards, as well as SAG and Oscar nominations, George Clooney has his sights set on his first best-actor Academy Award (he won supporting actor for Syriana). His moving portrayal of a cuckolded husband who, in the wake of an accident that leaves his wife in a coma, reconnects with his two daughters is by far the most relatable performance he's ever turned in -- but he'll face stiff competition from pal Brad Pitt and late-surging Artist star Jean Dujardin in his quest for that Oscar.
