Anne Hathaway - Rachel Getting Married
But who else? Most of the women who might land on Oscar ballots this year can't conceivably be shoved into that categorization. This might make the nominations truly interesting and mostly free of Oscar concerns.
Emma Thompson - Last Chance Harvey
Rachel McAdams -The Lucky Ones
Frances McDormand -Burn After Reading
Kat Dennings -Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist
Sarah Jessica Parker -Sex & The City: The Movie
Renée Zellweger -Leatherheads
??? & ???
Meryl Streep & Amanda Seyfried -Mamma Mia!
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler -Baby Mama
Frances McDormand & Amy Adams -Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day
With so few awards-friendly performances in the mix, this could be quite a low-stress / big-party night for the 5 or 6 comedic gals who snag this particular nomination. Who do you think those lucky plucky funny ladies will be?
