    Joan Allen in “Room”

    That’s exactly what I was going to say.

    She seems to have been forgotten about but everyone is going to see the film before voting and she’s a well respected veteran with 3 previous noms. I can see her getting a lot of votes from the acting branch that could result in a surprise nom.

    Definitely Joan Allen in Room. Like Laura Dern, she’s a previous nominee and in a seemingly beloved film. Also, she gets to play a “mom” role which is something the Supporting Actress category loves. Ask our most recent winner. She’ll tell you. Even though Allen’s role is small, she still has a big emotional scene.

    I try to think of the movies voters are going to warm up to for surprise nominations. I thought earlier it was going to be Creed too, but that might just be a prayer.

    I’ll go for Joan Allen too, since Room looks strong for writing and (possible) director & picture nods.

    Secretly hoping for Cynthia Nixon, but the chances of that happening barely exist.

    I want it so much to be Elizabeth Banks for Love & Mercy, but I am predicting Dame Maggie Smith for The Lady In The Van – I’m assuming screeners will be sent out on time and/or academy screenings will happen before the nominations are done. I will be surprised if none of the 3 older brit ladies gets a nomination this year (Mirren, Rampling or Smith).

    I agree with others that it might be Joan Allen. I’m also stubbornly sticking with Tom Hanks pulling off a shocker. I have to otherwise I’ll be kicking myself if it happens after I’ve removed him.

    YES PLEASE. I am expecting Creed to have more of a showing at the Oscars than it did at the Globes/SAGs because I feel like it came out too late to really make an impact at those. I think it can still make Best Picture, and I hope Jordan gets in.

    Yeah Joan Allen seems to be that pick. If they REALLY love Room, she’ll pull through. But I could see Michael Caine doing it for Lead Actor but that would be a Bradley Cooper situation for that category (if BAFTA snubs him too)

    Kristen Stewart? Though she seems like a critics favorite, not industry´s choice…

    Somehow, I forgot the nominations that came out today. In that case I concur with everyone else about Joan Allen.
