Kris Tapley has a pretty great article up on this year’s still wide-open Supporting Actress field over at InContention.. Seriously, it’s anyone’s game at this point. I just updated my own predictions for this category (as well as Supporting Actor), and I’ve got three veteran character actors (Miranda Richardson, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Dianne Wiest), a fresh face (Hailee Steinfeld), and a relative unknown (Jacki Weaver) as my top 5. And I’m not particularly sure about any of ’em. Still, it’s only October. In all likelihood this category will start making more sense come December.

I haven’t been all that excited for the new Coen Bros. film, but the trailer is definitely top-notch and places newcomer Hailee Steinfield front-and-center (I smell a supporting actress nominee!). A lot of pundits have been predicting this for Best Picture, but I’m still a bit wary… Westerns have not been doing well, at least financially, in awhile and the fact that it’s a remake of an Academy Award-winning John Wayne film doesn’t help. Still, it is the Coen Bros…
