Dave Karger sizes up the Best Supporting Actress race

Predicted Winner Cate Blanchett, The Aviator
Possible Upsets Virginia Madsen, Sideways; Sophie Okonedo, Hotel Rwanda
No Way Natalie Portman, Closer; Laura Linney, Kinsey

Often an upset-filled category, Best Supporting Actress could provide a big surprise this year as well, thanks to the growing buzz of Hotel Rwanda costar Sophie Okonedo, who seems to be the Shohreh Aghdashloo of this season. There?s also Virginia Madsen, who delivers the kind of subtle turn voters sometimes respond to. But if Million Dollar Baby takes the night?s big prizes, Cate Blanchett could wind up the only main-category winner for The Aviator.
