Best Actor: The odds on Daniel Day-Lewis winning in the title role of "Lincoln" currently are 1-to-50. That means to win $1, you have to bet $50 on him. In other words – he's an absolutely massive favorite. And deservedly so. He's really never not amazing, and the fact this will be "only" his third Oscar is surprising. But given his often long stretches between lead roles, he has a high winning percentage already. The potential spoilers could be Joaquin Phoenix for "The Master" or even Bradley Cooper for "Silver Linings Playbook." Despite his win at the Golden Globes, Hugh Jackman is probably farther back in the pack with the Oscar crowd.
