I'm also waiting to see the performances of HBC and Samantha Barks in Les Mis. I don't think either can win this year, but it's possible that one or both could be nominated along side Hathaway. Which one do you think is more likely?

I actually think Dench might get support. Wasn't Smith's film released a while ago? I feel the film might have be forgotten, even if "Downton Abbey" raised her profile recently. Not saying Dench is a sure thing, but I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up being the veteran the british voters support. In fact, I could see both her and Javier in, depending on how the critics groups react to the performances.
