Hathaway was a ditzy starlet when she teamed up with the Italian con not a finance expert. It’s silly to believe she had a full clue. VF did an article on him after his arrest, said he was an arrogant but smart prick who fast-talked his way into everything he did.
Hathaways parents had a clue early on because her father had him investigated. Even then she didn’t listen and kept on. He was typical sexist Italian in that he didn’t discuss or explain his business dealings with her and she didn’t ask. Once it became obvious how bad he was her team forced her to dump him and even then she resisted as long as possible. Not because she was guilty but b/c she was young, stubborn and spoiled.

Finally, even if there are 500 people who have by now seen both performances - which I doubt - how many of them do you think are actually seeing and responding to this thread on DL?

The only place where I've seen Field predicted to win, or even as a major threat to Hathaway is here on DL. Hathaway has always been the favorite, and she will win. Probably the only acting win for Les Miserables.
Field has two lead oscars, and her second is now seen by many as a really weak win (those who remember that mediocre movie). A third would put her in a category with Meryl Streep and Ingrid Bergman. Say what you want but most voters take that in mind. Why do you think it took Streep 20 something years to win again? every time she was nominated they had a chance to award a fresh, young actress in a hit or with a showy role or an overdue, oscarless veteran.
Previous winners Field and Hunt are locks for nominations, but that's it. Watch Hathaway sweep the industry awards.

Binoche was a surprise, but: 1)She gave the best performance 2)Was the only way to award the BP winner with an acting oscar 3)Bacall was/is despised by many 4)Was nominated for a Streisand movie.
And Binoche wasn't some unkown or crap starlet in her first role. She was already a respected actress with a solid filmography under her belt.
Looking back, Kate Hudson losing should not have come as a surprise. It was mostly hype for being Goldie's daughter and the possibility of her winning at the same age as her mother. If McDormand hadn't won for Fargo she probably would have won for Almost Famous.
The only true surprise of the last 20 years was Geena Davis, without even a Golden Globe nomination, but with 30 award shows every season that just doesn't happen anymore.
I would say Paquin too, but that was a weird year. If I remember the main competition was Winona Ryder and Paquin was in a BP nominee that also won foe actress and screenplay.
Hathaway fits the mold of a supporting actress winner. And with Hunt and Field being previous winners, plus The Master's buzz fading, her win seems more like a sure thing every day.

Adams was my early prediction, r38. A multiple nominee with another good performance.
But then Hathaway cut her hair and the clip of her singing hit the web. It seems like Hathaway has the tear-jearking scene of the year with her rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream", and with these awards sentimentality almost always trumps everything else (a good rule when predicting the foreign language winner).
The review embargo for Zero Dark Thirty ends today and early word has some people comparing Chastain to the likes of Foster in Silence of the Lambs and Weaver in Aliens. Now THAT'S a race that will get interesting in the upcoming weeks, especially now that Silver Linings is underperforming at the box office.

R22 If "Therese Raquin" still winds up coming out in limited release on December 28th, then Jessica Lange will be a bit of a surprise nominee for the Oscars and most assuredly the Golden Globes.
The character she plays in "Therese Raquin" is almost like tailor made for her talents in much the same way Mary Todd Lincoln is to Sally Field's.
Will Jessica Lange win? Hell if I know, but a 'Sally Field v/s Jessica Lange' grudge-match of sorts come awards season is kinda cool considering that they are both ladies of a certain age who are at the height of their talents. It's like they are both still willing to grow and learn within their craft because they are artists first and celebrities second. They're both rare birds in this day and age if you were to ask me.

There was still a month left 'til the Oscar ceremony and in that time was when she dropped the ball and started griping about not being on magazine covers and even had her own "glamor shots" taken and put in newspapers. Some thought it cost her the Oscar, and Entertainment Weekly in their last Oscar issue gave the advantage to Hailee Steinfeld 'cause of that minor scanadal.
But before that, Leo was just coasting along the awards season and being thought of as an underrated actress.

I couldn't believe the way she brought up that story about Rachel Weisz and then said to her, "Well, you should tell it." I thought, talk about yourself, bitch instead of directing others about what they should say.
And the way Hunt - who is clearly one intelligent, cool, take no prisoners kind of gal - totally shut Hathaway down when they asked her about hosting the Oscars. Then Hathaway starts making excuses for some of her awful screen performances by saying she "tried to get out of the film" - I'm sure she was talking about One Day.
Sally was a bit grumpy with her "it just gets harder, GIRLS!" attitude early on but was triumphant when she talked about getting the role of Mary Todd Lincoln. Sally is a lock for the Oscar.
Btw, instead of pontificating blindly about these things don't you guys look at the Feinberg forecast or even the Oscar Futures at NY Mag? Jessica Lange in Therese Raquin isn't on anybody's radar and it takes at least some campaign effort to get a nomination, especially with this year's earlier schedule. She's not a contender at all.

I will simply say that when there is no clear choice a campaign matters. It's unusual, but not unthinkable that there would be a campaign for Best Supporting actor or actress.
It would depend on the success of the film, and whether the producers want to campaign for the cast, and it depends on the agency that reps the actor or actress.
We haveb't seen Jessica Lange or Jessica Chastain yet, but unless they do something remarkable, the BSA race boils down to Anne & Sally. So the question is whether the momentum will be with Les Miz or Lincoln. I can see both contending for multiple awards.

I'd been reading people's responses to the screenings and Seyfried got major props but Barks got mixed reviews; in short, while Barks has a great voice her acting is mediocre, and Seyfried makes a lot out of a thankless role. Don't know if that would be enough for Seyfried to get a nom.
The only way I can see one or the other get nominated along with Hathaway is if the film is a big hit like "Chicago" and they ride the movie's coattails to a nomination, à la Queen Latifah, who wouldn't have even been considered if the film had flopped.

Chastain figures in the Best Actress category; the film is now having private previews in LA. Somehow I don't think it will be honoured for its acting.
R69, there is nothing unusual about a campaign in the Supporting categories - many of them are quite legendary. No campaign = no nomination. When a studio or distributor launches an Oscar campaign, they promote every conceivable nominee on their film, regardless of what DL thinks of their chances. When I lived in LA, I remember seeing multiple daily ads for Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith in Paradise, FFS. The campaigns are pretty shameless but it's an industry. They promote what product they have.

She brought up a story about Weisz because the story interested her. She started telling the story and then deferred its telling to Weisz.
So no, she didn't come off as passive aggressive, she came off as complimentary to a colleague and then, when she realized the story wasn't hers to tell, that it was Rachel's and not hers, and that she might also get the facts wrong, she courteously referred to Rachel for the telling of Rachel's own story. This came off as polite, humble and an unwillingness to take over and steal Rachel's thunder. It came off as both admiring and respectful, not at all as authoritative and cunty.

I wasn't "unbelievably moved" by Field's performance in Lincoln, I simply saw it as intelligent, restrained (especially for an actress, good as she is, who is not known for her restraint and is best when she is mindful of how animated she can become), and very, very well done.
But those who were "unbelievably moved" by it don't have hearts of stone. Having a heart of stone means that one suffers from a lack of sensitivity. It does not mean that one is, if anything, overly vulnerable to being moved.

Marcia Gay Harden was a surprise oscar winner as was Tilda Swinton.
They both very much deserved it because they were both great. And that made it even more of a surprise.
Binoche was a huge surprise because the common wisdom - as common wisdom as you could get with oscars, as much of an expected slam dunk - was Bacall was going to win. And Bacall was good in the otherwise bathetic Mirror.
Binoche's performance was as much a lead as Scott-Thomas's (nominated as lead) and was more of a lead than a great many performances which have won lead oscars; but that's a different issue.

The fact that most have already given the Oscar to Hathaway before her film is even out, tells you how much these awards are just about the hype and brainwashing everyone in agreeing on the same thing. Oscars, like everything else in Hollywood are about packaging done by agencies and big agents even before filming begins; "Let's cast Hathaway in this, she's sure to get an Oscar for it."
This is, also, a reason why so many of these Oscar contenders fail as films. Filmmakers aim to make the best Oscar type of film, not the best film.

Lange plays Madame Raquin, a very significant character in the Zola novel that requires an exceptionally talented actor to pull off what that character goes through in the story. But I doubt that "Thérèse" will even be released in time for the 2012 awards season. It's slated for 2013.
