Best Actor race just got a little less crowded

With widely believed speculation that The Road would be pushed to 2009 to make room for The Reader, and now news that The Soloist is also being shelved until March 2009, the Best Actor race is short a couple of horses. The real losers are Viggo Mortensen and especially Robert Downey Jr., who was having a terrific 2008 and looked like a solid Best Actor bet simply for his body of work this year. Too bad.
