The Playlist tries to prematurely predict the 2013 Oscar Nominations and guess who makes it onto their "long-shot" list for Best Actor...Rob :). We're going to keep our fingers, toes and everything else crossed for him ;-))
Robert Pattinson - "Cosmopolis"
Starring in a David Cronenberg film has never been the way to Oscar, but "A Dangerous Method" was certainly the director's most palatable film to date (some would argue too much so...), and things won't get too much freakier in his Don DeLillo adaptation. Indeed, the lead role, of a limo-bound billionaire, has the potential to be a real tour de force. But will Robert Pattinson be able to gain real respect by pulling it off? Word on "Bel Ami" from Berlin was fairly weak, but we're genuinely rooting for him to pull this one off. We suspect even if he does that this won't be a nomination year for him, but you never know. ..
