If you had a ballot sitting in front of you right now, for example, and the only films that were eligible were films that had already opened (at least on the coasts -- we'll cheat and include next week's Precious) which supporting performances would be on your ballot? The pickings might be arguably slim but I'd probably choose from these ten. Which boxes would you check off?
- Marion Cotillard, Public Enemies
Diane Kruger and Melanie Laurent Inglourious Basterds
Kerry Fox, Bright Star
Juliette Lewis and Marcia Gay Harden, Whip It
Rosamund Pike and Emma Thompson, An Education
Carrie Preston, That Evening Sun (and Duplicity)
Or maybe you can't bring yourself to care yet. You're only thinking about Nine and how you hope it clogs up 150% of your personal ballot in all categories.
