I'm tellin' ya: no one could possible predict the winner of this category.
To wit: That guy from those 2 scenes in "Revolutionary Road" will NOT win.
That guy from that movie where Meryl Streep is full of doubts will walk home Empty Handed.
Robert Downey Jr. will not finally accept his overdue trophy for his nomination in "Chaplin" decades before.
And Barbra Streisand's stepson Josh Brolin will have to go home and look at Babs' TWO Oscars if he wants to see gold this night!
Which means- The Joker will sneakily take home the award! Laughing all the way back to his secret hideout inside a big clock somewhere.
