Oscar Watch: Actress

Best Actress Noms:
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Helen Mirren, The Last Station
Carey Mulligan, An Education
Gabourey Sidibe, Precious
Meryl Streep, Julie & Julia

It seems like it is a two-horse race in this one between veteran leading ladies, Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock, and I'm guessing that's partially because a lot of people have seen their respective films.  That's too bad, because I think the women in the smaller films were amazing.  My favorite was Carey Mulligan as the innocent teenager who is forced to grow up quickly in An Education, while Gabourey Sidibe was outstanding in her very first acting role, Precious.

Best Supporting Actress Noms:
Penélope Cruz, Nine
Vera Farmiga, Up in the Air
Maggie Gyllenhaal, Crazy Heart
Anna Kendrick, Up in the Air
Mo'Nique, Precious

  1. It's the battle of the bio-pics!

    I adored Carrie Mulligan in An Education, but Meryl and Sandra seem to have the flashier roles, just like Mo'nique has in Precious.

    I'm still pulling for Streep over Bullock! Go Meryl go!
