Earlier this week I posted a clip of Natalie Portman from Black Swan, a film that will certainly earn her a Best Actress nomination. The other front-runner in the race this year is obviously Annette Bening for her fierce turn as a red wine-loving mom in The Kids Are All Right. Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess. How is the rest of the field looking at this point? Here’s my current rundown:


Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right

Julianne Moore, The Kids Are All Right

Natalie Portman, Black Swan


Halle Berry, Frankie & Alice

Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole

Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone

Lesley Manville, Another Year

Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine


Anne Hathaway, Love & Other Drugs

Sally Hawkins, Made in Dagenham

Diane Lane, Secretariat

Gwyneth Paltrow, Country Strong

Naomi Watts, Fair Game

Who just missed making the cut? Tilda Swinton for I Am Love and Hilary Swank for Conviction. And I know that some of my Oscar prognosticator friends feel I’m overly bullish on Julianne Moore. What do you all think?
