Let's call them all leads. Definitely.

It may split the vote, but it's only fair, based on the roles' strength/prominence.

Natalie Portman in "Cold Mountain" would be supporting. I think that's the scale we're looking for. Our definition of "leading" may be a little more expansive than usual...

modage:
okay cool.  and is City Of God a debut film or not?

It is a debut film, because it's a first full-length feature. It's eligible for Best Film and Best Debut, but I'm guessing it would be better placed under Best Film.

Best Debut is more like "it's not the best film of the year, but it's really good for a debut"...
