    I would suggest adding Carrie Coon for Gone Girl. She plays Ben Affleck's character's sister who is in a majority of the story. Also apparently Jessica Chastain is going to be Supporting for A Most Violent Year

  • Adam Pennington

    Sorry, I really think you have this one widely off - there's some big British actresses who need to go higher on the list, namely Kristin Scott Thomas, by all accounts she is set to absolutely steal Suite Francaise. I also think that you need to include Helena Bonham Carter for Suffragette and Vanessa Redgrave for Foxcatcher.

      Suite Francaise and Suffragette might not even be released this year.

    5) Emily Blunt - Into the Woods

    Vanessa Redgrave needs to be added to the list for Foxatcher.

  • Shane O’Neal

    I really hope that Jennifer Connelly scores a nomination for Noah.

    Top 5:

    Chastain
    Ejogo
    Knightley
    Arquette

    Maybe Dern or Stone.

    Into the Woods looks me meh right now, and I'm not so sure about Inherent Vice ' s chances.

    Sorry, now I've seen Interstellar you should leave Chastain out. It certainly isn't her fault however. The character flatlines and she has little to do beyond look worried/concerned/sad. I may be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time a performance is carried through on the wave of a mammoth film like this but I doubt it now. Nolan, Zimmer, the cinematographer, the editor, and the picture all deserve nods but acting wise, it leaves much to be desired.

  • Gabe Braden

    There is no way, whatsoever that Interseller is getting a nominee for any acting awards. the acting was simply horrible in the movie. And Kiera Knightly is getting a nod for The Imitation Game.

    - Emma Stone: Birdman

    Winner: Jessica Chastain

  • jhairo cordova

    I already listened Meryl Streep singing as the witch and she is amazing, her best part is when she sings the song "the last midnight", she is going to win the Oscar.

    2) Meryl Streep - Into The Woods (30% to win)
