Let’s play our part in the hype machine and use this week to give predictions for the Oscars, shall we?  Let’s start with Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

And the nominees are:

  • Amy Adams in ‘The Master’
  • Sally Field in ‘Lincoln’
  • Anne Hathaway in ‘Les Miserables’
  • Helen Hunt in ‘The Sessions’
  • Jacki Weaver in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

Who Should Win: Hmmm.  I don’t know if there’s really a wrong choice here by the definition of the category.  Let’s throw Helen Hunt out here.

Who I Want to Win: Again, hmmm.  I don’t have a terribly strong love for any of these women (over the other four, in this specific context).  I guess I’ll cheer for Sally Field.

Who Will Win: Anne Hathaway.  It’s been preordained it seems.  Just get ready for the speech.

Tomorrow we move to the fellas…
