Best Supporting Actress Predictions (as of 11/13/12)

Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables
Pros: She has matured and proven herself many times as an actress, gave a best in show performance earlier this year in The Dark Knight Rises and she has been the star that all of the trailers has been highlighting
Cons: While an impactful role it is a small role, some people may not take her seriously enough yet
Sally Field, Lincoln
Pros: A veteran actress who is making a comeback as one of the most famous first ladies in a very well received film
Cons: Has already won twice, doubtful she will win again.  Will definitely get nominated though
Helen Hunt, The Sessions
Pros: Another actress making a comeback this year.  This is an emotional role that also showcases here beauty
Cons: Helen Hunt may have been out of the public eye for too long, this movie might not register with the Academy
Amy Adams, The Master
Pros: Always a popular actress around Oscar time, gives one of her best performances
Cons: The role was small and the movie may end up being forgotten

Scarlett Johansson, Hitchcock
Pros: Scarlett is usually up for a nomination, it is her time and playing a former movie star usually gets Oscar attention.  Having been in The Avengers earlier this year can't hurt her either
Cons: For whatever reason she is still looked down upon, this role may not be large enough to reward, don't know if this movie will even work


Samantha Barks, Les Miserables
Pros: She was so good and popular as Eponine in the 25th Anniversary that she is reprising it in her film debut.  This can be a show stealing role and the beautiful young actress certainly has experience at it
Cons: Her name hasn't been brought up in any of the advertisements, all of the buzz is around Anne, it is hard to get a nomination in your first movie
Kerry Washington, Django Unchained
Pros: A dependable actress who has never had an Oscar role before, playing the object of affection can do well in this category  Also Tarantino can write memorable female characters
Cons: Yet again, how big is this role?  They may reward other actresses before her
Maggie Smith, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Pros: Legendary actress who hasn't been nominated in a while, this category may be open enough for her to get in
Cons: Also in contention for Quartet, this will not be one of the more popular movies in contention
Kelly Reilly, Flight
Pros: A well-received performance in a very important role.  If voters respond to Flight she very well could get noticed
Cons: The movie needs to do well for her to do well, there isn't enough buzz around this role and she isnt well-known enough to get in on her own
Nicole Kidman, The Paperboy
Pros: An actress people like in a sexy, trashy, unlikable role
Cons: This movie has not resonated with many, may take a better role for her to be welcomed back
