This may be the easiest of the major awards to pick considering Cate Blanchett seems to have it in the bag thanks to wins at this year’s BAFTAs and SAG Awards. It is unlikely Natalie Portman will be taking it home, and although Virginia Madsen has been highly praised for her role in Sideways things seem to be cooling in that sector. As for Okonedo and Linney it is best to say they are happy just being there.
I was unable to catch Kinsey as of yet, but I did see Hotel Rwanda, and while Okonedo’s performance is probably the most emotional part of the film it won’t be enough to take out Blanchett’s Hepburn.
