The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

With the Oscars just around five months away, it’s time to start taking a look at some films that are in the running to try and snag some awards when everything is all said and done. We are about to enter the much anticipated ‘Oscar Season’ where mostly every studio in the world is trying to lineup their films to make a run at grabbing and Oscar nod with dreams of taking home the gold.

It’s still far too early to  tell who will be considered Oscar locks, but we are starting to get a good idea of what films and filmmakers have the best chance to hear their name at least a few times when it comes to handing out nominations and awards this February. Here’s how the Best Actor rankings are stacking up at this point in the Oscar race.

Sitting on the outside of the bubble are four actors who need a lot of help to get Oscar nods, but could end up hearing their names called when it comes to announcing the nomination in January. They sit on the cusp of the power rankings but keep an eye on them to possibly crack the rankings at some point.

1. Benedict Cumberbatch (The Fifth Estate)
2. Michael Fassbender (The Counselor)
3. Ben Stiller (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty)
4. Steve Carrell (Foxcatcher)
5. Hugh Jackman (Prisoners)
