Below are a few categories for this year’s Academy Awards. Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, and Kate Winslet are possible takers for the actress in a leading role category. Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Mickey Rourke, who gave some of the best performances in their careers are making it quite difficult to choose. For their supporting roles, first time nominees Taraji H. Penson, Viola Davis gave incredible performances for their roles as well and the late Heath Ledger, Robert Downy Jr. are my two top pics for their roles.
