Johnny Depp's portrayal of James "Whitey" Bulger was tipped Friday as a potential Oscar winner after "Black Mass," an account of the Boston mobster's life of crime, was unveiled to a warm reception at the Venice film festival.Barely recognizable after having been given the Irish-American gangster's severely receding hairline, sallow Celtic complexion and piercing blue eyes, Depp features in almost every scene of Scott Cooper's movie.Bulger became a fugitive in 1994 and evaded capture for 17 years.The Bulger portrayed by Cooper is also a man bestowed with a natural charisma who lets his elderly mother cheat at cards – a world away from the Bulger-based monster played by Jack Nicholson in Martin Scorsese's "The Departed".Depp has been nominated for a Best Actor Oscar three times before but has never won.
