Who will be awarded the Oscar for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor at the 2015 Academy Awards? Will Oscar frontrunners like Michael Keaton in Birdman, Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game or Eddie Redmayne in The Theory of Everything take home the 2015 best actor award at the 87th Academy Awards? Perhaps a dark horse nominee like Steve Carrell will take home the gold.

There were a lot of great acting performances in 2014 and perennial favorites like Bradley Cooper in the Clint Eastwood directed American Sniper, and the Best Supporting Actor category is as crowded as ever with brilliant performances from the likes of Mark Ruffalo, Edward Norton, and Robert Duvall.

Who do you think will win the Oscar for best actor and Best Supporting Actor? Also, feel free to check out The Best Actors In Film History and the Complete List of Academy Award Winning Actors! Will these Oscars 2015 predictions come true? We'll know on February 22, 2015!
