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.

It’s not even a minute long, but this has already changed my perception of the film. Colin Firth seems great (as do Helena Bonham Carter and Geoffrey Rush) and the cinematography is perfect. This is definitely not going to be the middlebrow, mid-90s Oscarbait I originally thought it was…
