Morgan Freeman

Dark Horse Lead Actor: 'The Bucket List'

Why: Playing opposite Jack Nicholson can be both a blessing and a curse. Throughout his career, Nicholson has made every actor around him better, but it can be difficult to be noticed when someone of Nicholson’s presence fills up the screen. Freeman goes toe-to-toe with him in “The Bucket List,” and, as the two are both competing for lead actor noms, it’s tough to say which one, if either, will make more of an impression on voters. Of course, with an Oscar and three other noms, Freeman doesn’t need to play second fiddle to anyone.
