I wonder what jjj would do if it turned out Barks was 1/16 Japanese.
God, the fact that Hathaway was the only runner-up from NY mentioned seems to indicate that even the critics don't know what the hell to do with this category.

Would the Academy actually give two actors his/her third win each, as would happen if both DDL and Field win? I can't see that happening yet I can't see DDL not winning his third Oscar.
I bit off topic, but why haven't they opened a new actress thread?
For those who appreciated Kidman's performance in The Paperboy, as Amy Nicholson from MovieLine said... In October, a group of rogue cinephiles launched a For Your Consideration Facebook page flogging Nicole Kidman's outstanding work in The Paperboy. As of today, the page has 10 fans. Let's get that number growing.
I liked it!
I know I've got a big ego, I really don't know why it's such a big deal, though.
Dream Nominees: Hathaway, Seyfried, Kidman, Smith, Adams.
Predictions: Hathaway, Field, Hunt, Smith, Adams.
Speculation on goldderby about SLP landing nominations in every category, but I would think Supp. Actress would be even more of a struggle than Lead Actor. Jacki Weaver was endearing and did a great job, but there's not a lot there.
hmm...Ann Dowd wins National Board of Review...maybe she could take the 5th spot alongside Anne, Amy, Sally, and Helen. if they send screeners ....anyone know of Compliance sent screeners ??
Well in recent years winners included Gong Li, Catherine O'Hara, and Woodley. But at least this provides a possible alternate "two newcomers" situation to Les Miz getting 3 nominees in one category, which I highly doubt.
