Best Supporting Actress

And the nominees are:

Cate Blanchett, I'm Not There
as: Jude Quinn (Bob Dylan)

Ruby Dee, American Gangster
as: Mama Lucas

Saoirse Ronan, Atonement
as: Briony Tallis

Amy Ryan, Gone Baby Gone
as: Helene McCready

Tilda Swinton, Michael Clayton
as: Karen Crowder

This is the most contested of the big categories...seriously anyone can win. Blanchett has the buzz role (and the Golden Globe), Dee has the old, never Oscared title (and the SAG award), Ryan has the trashy, toned-down (but she's pretty) role, Ronan is the revelation and Swinton has the character actress made it into a big movie (and the BAFTA) role. My heart belongs to Blanchett for her inspired and breathlessly original take in I'm Not There... she's extrordinary. Dee might actually be the eventual victor here, but I think Ryan (winner of the most critics prizes) and Ronan have a shot too. The should be nominated list (in my humble opinion) is Catherine Keener (the heart and soul of Into the Wild), Imelda Stauton (hammy and great in pink in Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix) and Jennifer Garner (has she ever been better than in Juno.)
