  • Annette Bening, The Kids Are All Right
  • Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
  • Jennifer Lawrence, Winter’s Bone
  • Natalie Portman, Black Swan
  • Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine

WINNER: we call BS, as the Academy turned their back on these two Brits’ brilliant performances: Lesley Manville in Another Year and Katie Jarvis in Fish Tank.  Portman will most likely get it, but wouldn’t be sirprized if Bening takes it, since it might also be her ‘turn’ to win
