Swank's performance in Amelia is not that good. She won't get nominated at all.

Ron Cruz said...

I'm really convinced that she's not going to get nominated, but I'm not ready to complete dismiss the possibility just yet, if only because many said the same thing about Blanchett's perf in "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" two years ago. But yeah, I suppose even Michelle Monaghan has a stronger chance now to get a slot.

Ponyboy said...

I would say Carey Mulligan is the front runner now. A third one for Streep? Hard to say.

Ron Cruz said...

I would have to disagree. Streep is the clear front-runner now, with Bullock nipping at her heels.

Ponyboy said...

mhm, things changed after yesterday. But for the Oscars, still don't think Bullock would have a chance.

The race is getting more interesting and unpredictable. Maybe there will be more surprises in Golden Globes. Bullock may defeat Mulligan again.

WILL WIN: Sandra Bullock
SHOULD WIN: Carey Mulligan, though a win for Sibide or Streep is almost as good

SNUBBED: Abbie Cornish, Tilda Swinton

No one can beat Cate Blanchett, not even Meryl, as much as I love her!
Blanchett's performance is beyond analysis, I can't even find words to describe her work in Blue Jasmine. On the other hand, I can't believe Sandra Bullock is even in the list of possible nominees!!
