    I’m not so sure either Plummer and Spencer are locks. Supporting actress race will be close i think with Spencer as the favorite and that category now and then has surprises.
    For supp. actor Plummer is favorite but Von Sydow is in a best picture nominee with WB backing and i can see him winning. Lack of excitment and standing ovations for Plummer (more or less every veteran actor is expected to get one) at SAG, Globes and BFCA is  possible indicator. Also, when you primarily are gay in a film, academy is reluctant to reward you (Ledger, McKellen, Gyllenhall, Firth, Benning not to mention BBM loss and Crash fiasco in a BP category), but when being gay is not that exposed (Kidman or Seymor Hoffman) or is mixed with important issues like AIDS (Tom Hanks) they are more willing to give it to you. That said, i think Plummer is clear favorite, but not a lock.

    Would be something special if both
    male acting awards went to silent roles…
    DUJARDIN…..VON SYDOW..
    I think Plummer is respected but not
    beloved by the industry.

    I remember the story of how he stormed out
    of the Tony Awards some years back  after losing
    best actor in a play for King Lear..

    His speeches have been heartfelt…but I think
    he has an arrogance about  him…..

    Von Sydow is actually more of an acting legend
    except he doesnt  have  THE SOUND OF MUSIC…LOL

    I just saw The Descendants and what a shame that Woodley wasn’t nominated in supporting, she did a wonderful job as co-star with Clooney, lame!

    and Evan Rachel Wood deserved some recognition too.

    @ MadsonMelo, although I’m rooting for my girl Octavia. I defintely agree with you about Shailene being snubbed. She really could’ve went over the top with the performance but did a great job. I really don’t get the love for Albert Nodds and Sheilene should’ve taken McTeer’s spot.

    Yes, Shailene missing out is one of the worst things about this year’s Oscar noms. She’ll definitely make my own top five.

    Yes, Shailene Woodley should have been in this final lineup.

    Keeping this going, Shailene should have been nominated.

    I wish Chastain could take it, she was phenomenal this year in The Debt, The Help, The Tree of Life and especially Take Shelter. 

    At this point, I’d rank likeliness of winning

    1 Octavia Spencer, The Help
    2 Jessica Chastain, The Help
    3 Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids
    4 Berenice Bojo, The Artist
    5 Janet McTeer, Albert Nobbs (a distant 5th)

    LOL! But it’s true… Shailene Woodley was robbed. Teenage characters can often be over-the-top or just plain false, but she was wholly believable and relatable and became a great side-kick for Clooney’s character.

    Count me in on the Shailene Woodley love.. She should be a frontrunner for the win. In fact, I think she gave the best performance in her film (which I found to be unremarkable but good enough).

    Yeah I agree she shouldn’t have been snubbed. She was one of the reasons why I enjoyed it.

    Very odd reason but I thought she had a good chance of getting in, since most of George Clooney’s female side-kicks seem to make it in when he goes lead. (Swinton, Kendrick, Farminga) Not to mention Decendents had a big showing of nominations including BP
