JULIE CHRISTIE, AWAY FROM HER
CATE BLANCHETT, ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE
ELLEN PAGE, JUNO
ANGELINA JOLIE, A MIGHTY HEART
MARION COTILLARD, LA VIE EN ROSE
My predictions: 4/5, picking Keira Knightley over Blanchett.
Really? I had completely forgotten about "Elizabeth: The Golden Age". Oh, well. This is dismal news for Laura Linney, who now pretty much has no shot at an Oscar nomination for "The Savages". Knightley's omission is not a big surprise, and she managed to get in for "Pride & Prejudice" at the Oscars without a SAG nomination. Her missing out is more of an "Atonement" backlash, I think.
Who will win? Each of these nominees is here on their own, with no other support for any of the films. I think Cotillard takes this one.
Oscar lineup? Swap out Blanchett for Knightley.
