I enjoyed Matt Damon's role as inspirational rugby player Francois Pinnear in Clint Eastwood's Invictus, admiring the ease with which he took on a South African accent and went toe-to-toe with Morgan Freeman's Nelson Mandela. Damon pulled off a two-fer of nominations at the Golden Globes (the other being for The Informant!) this year; though I doubt he'll get two nods at the Oscars, I could see him getting at least one in this category.
