Michael Sheen, ‘Frost/Nixon’

Lead actor in the mix

Understandably, Sheen is vying for a lead actor slot since his character is in the title … but so is Frank Langella, and it’s awfully tough for a film to receive two lead actor slots. Putting himself in the supporting slot might increase his chances, but his go-for-broke attitude will either pay huge dividends or fall short. He received plenty of kudos for “The Queen,” and the residual good will may help here.
