Women in Cinema- The “Oscarettes”: Who Will be nominated for Best Actress?


With the Oscar nominations right around the corner and the critics’ awards nearly complete, it’s that time of the year folks where we all wonder and debate who will be honored with a nomination Oscar morning. Right now it seems that the women who will be nominated are Viola Davis, Meryl Streep, and Michelle Williams. But while some of these women may be a lock for a nomination, we all know there’s plenty of room for upset. So let’s go through the performances that have a chance to score a nomination January 24th.

We’re all aware anything can happen Oscar morning, snubs of possible frontrunners, and surprises we kept hoping for all season and never thought would happen. Joey had made a remark in his article “Snubs and Surprises”, stating if anybody were to get left off the list Oscar morning it would be Glenn Close, and I happen to agree with him. While Glenn Close gave a standout performance, I feel as though she would only be receiving a career nomination and I have never agreed with that type of nomination. I believe right now that Close is a lock, but in reality, nobody is a lock until there name is announced as a nominee.

Anna’s Final Five:
Glenn Close- Albert Nobbs
Viola Davis- The Help
Meryl Streep- The Iron Lady
Tilda Swinton- We Need to Talk About Kevin
