When the Oscar nominations were announced, although deeply deserved, the biggest surprise had to be Jessica Chastain making the cut alongside her The Help co-star Octavia Spencer. The latter is the odds-on favorite to follow up her Golden Globes win with Oscar gold, yet Movie Fanatic wants to hear from our readers who you believe should take home the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award.
The Artist star Berenice Bejo (check out our exclusive video interview with her) could possibly be swept into the winner’s circle by her film’s impressive 10 nominations. The film is the favorite to win Best Picture and perhaps she could ride the coattails to victory.
Albert Nobbs scene stealer Janet McTeer earned a long deserved nomination for her work alongside Best Actress nominee Glenn Close. She may be the longest shot of all the nominees, but… you never know, remember Marisa Tomei and her upset?
The fifth spot on the Best Supporting Actress list went to Melissa McCarthy. With all the attention being paid on The Help actresses, unfortunately McCarthy and her Bridesmaids scene-stealing turn will likely have to be classified under the eponymous moniker: "It's just an honor to be nominated."
Who do you think deserves the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress?
