The Buzz: This looks to be Anne Hathaway's nom to get and award to win, with her brave Les Miserables performance displaying just the right amount of alchemy and range that the Academy loves. It's also often a young person's category, but previous Oscar winner Sally Field's stance in Lincoln could also steal Anne's thunder to nab a nom and subsequent win.
Who Will Get Nominated: Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables), Helen Hunt (The Sessions), Amy Adams (The Master) Sally Field (Lincoln), with Nicole Kidman's performance in The Paperboy a possible dark horse pick.
Who Should Get Nominated But Won't: Kerry Washington (Django Unchained), Judi Dench (Skyfall), Frances McDormand (Promised Land), Maggie Smith (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty)
