Oscar Watch – Supporting Actress

Octavia Spencer - The Help - 2012 best Supporting Actress

Octavia Spencer – The Help – 2012 best Supporting Actress

So the nominees for Best Supporting Actress this year are –

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

So far the winners in this same/similar category from other shows are –

  • Anne Hathaway – Screen Actor’s Guild Awards
  • Amy Adams – Chicago Film Critics
  • Sally Field – New York Film Critics
  • Anne Hathaway – BAFTA (British Award’s)
  • Anne Hathaway – Golden Globes

So what does this tell you other than this is still a bit open?  I think it is a mistake to count out Helen Hunt in this category but i think you can count out Jacki Weaver.  Right now I am leaning towards Anne Hathaway but I am still on the fence but I generally trust the SAG awards for the supporting awards.

This is also the one major category that I am not yet fully educated on so that is a serious handicap.  I loved Helen Hunt in The Sessions and the role was borderline lead actress but I think Les Miserables has a real shot in Hathaway.

Up next….Best Supporting Actor
