The 2015 Oscar nominations are out and these are the five actors who were nominated for the Best Actor Oscar. The Best Actor category for the Academy Awards is a really strong lineup this year. There's the veteran, semi-washed up actor making a comeback (Michael Keaton), of-the moment media darling and fan favorite Benedict Cumberbatch, the young, promising up-and-comer Eddie Redmayne, the usually comedic actor Steve Carrell who stretched his talents for his lead role in Foxcatcher, and Bradley Cooper, who seems to have officially left his Hangover days in the dust with this Oscar nom. Which of these five actors do you think has the best chance of winning the Academy Award for Best Acting at the 87th Academy Awards in March? Vote for your choice for Best Actor Oscar winner below!
