The 80th Annual Academy Awards are this weekend and it's time to break out the ballots and play the at-home game, which is probably second only in fun to making booze-enhanced color commentary from the couch for the red carpet arrivals. (We'll leave you to your own devices on that one.)

So let's start with the big four in the acting categories, where we find a mix of Hollywood's new generation of royalty (Clooney, Depp, Blanchett, Linney), old schoolers making fresh waves (Christie, Holbrook, Dee) and a teenager from Halifax who plays a quirky knocked-up teen (Page). Who do you want to see make off with the coveted statuette? Take our poll after the jump!
