Today’s Producers Guild and Writers Guild award nominations didn’t do much to shake up the overall Oscar race. But the fantastic box-office performance of True Grit has only boosted its chances…and led many voters to consider its heroine Hailee Steinfeld in the lead-actress category despite her supporting campaign. Because of that, Steinfeld now appears on both my Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress lists. And I do now have something of a gut feeling that Amy Adams could win the Best Supporting Actress trophy. Here’s where I think things stand right now.
