Depp Chosen As Oscar Favourite

Actor JOHNNY DEPP has been pinpointed as the favourite to win the best actor ACADEMY AWARD for his efforts in hit movie PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL.

Depp put on an acclaimed comedic performance for his role as drunken pirate JACK SPARROW, and now critics have labelled him as the favourite for the coveted prize - with film studio DISNEY already preparing an OSCAR campaign to support him.

An executive says, "He created something dynamic and original, and every single review raved about him."

If Depp does take home the prize in February (03), he'll prove to be an usual choice as the trophy traditionally goes to actors who play more serious roles.
