SAG Nominees: Best Actress in a Leading Role

My predictions: 3/5
Who’s missing: Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Kirsten Dunst (Melancholia), Keira Knightley (A Dangerous Method), Charlize Theron (Young Adult), Jodie Foster (Carnage)

I’m not sure exactly why I didn’t swap out Jodie Foster for a more legitimate contender, and it does seem that Viola Davis (The Help) is a certifiable lead at this point. I’m thrilled to see Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin), and need to make a point of seeing that film, which was released this past week, very soon. Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) manages to stay in the race with a nomination here, and she’s joined by expected nominees and surefire locks Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady) and Michelle Williams (My Wee k with Marilyn). Now we get to the notable snub, which is Elizabeth Olsen. If “The Help” is classified as a comedy by the Golden Globes, she should get a drama mention tomorrow, but if not, I’m not sure how her chances are looking given that this could very well be an Oscar list…

Who could win? Streep
