My top choices in the order I would place them on my Academy ballot if I were allowed to vote:


ADAM BEACH, Flags of Our Fathers


MARK WAHLBERG, The Departed


ALEC BALDWIN, The Departed & Running with Scissors


MICHAEL SHEEN, The Queen


PAUL DANO, Little Miss Sunshine


Runners-up in alphabetical order:
Michael Caine (Children of Men)

Apologies to Ben Affleck. I still haven't seen Hollywoodland. And to Jason Isaacs, one of my favorite actors, whose film, Friends with Money is sitting on my desk, still unwatched.
