I wonder how Ellen Page received best breakout performance for Juno when we've already seen her perform excellently in Hard Candy (Filmstalker review)? Was that not classed as a "breakthrough" role?

Persepolis looks as though it's going to do well, although it might well be fighting with Ratatouille, which is a strange mix of films indeed.

Daniel Day-Lewis, Julie Christie look good, Javier Bardem, Cate Blanchett and Amy Ryan all look good too.

It's going to be interesting leading up to the big one, but already we're seeing some patterns. Any personal favourites so far?
