"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Prediction Updates: Lead and Supporting Actress

Oscar obsessives around the web,including myself,have been hung up on the Glenn Close vs.Meryl Streep Best Actress '80s Rematch!narrative for quite awhile now withAlbert NobbsandThe Iron Ladystill without real movie trailers to give the already popular media angle extra flavor.Less often discussed,and it's been nagging me for awhile now,is which young actress the Oscars will glom onto this year.亚博主页Best Actressis often,statistically speaking,a beauty pageant who's who of hot 20 and 30something stars.This is not to say that the main race can't be between two 60-something ladies (it can if their names are Close & Streep) but we already know that that won't be the whole story even if it does turn out to be The Story.

There are three more slots to consider and more than that if you include the possibility that Close or Streep might not happen,if you include the precursor awards (which have room for more players) and theSupporting Actress categorywhich has slightly more diverse preferences but which is still a sucker for a new "it"girl.

Which young beauties will be competing for gold?There isn't room for all of them.

Fresh Faces.
Which will Oscar get a Mulligan / Lawrence style insta-crush on?
ROONEY MARA,26,with sociopathic edge and punk styling inThe Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
FELICITY JONES,27,doing young romance drama in Sundance hitLike Crazy.
ELIZABETH OLSEN,22,winning acclaim as cult member inMartha Marcy May Marleneand probably winning credit for being talented younger sibling of the gajillionaire Olsen twin sisters.
MIA WASIKOWSKA,21,proving she can carry a film and also be excellent while doing so inJane Eyre.
ANDREA RISEBOROUGH,29,soon to be winning "best in show"attention forW.E.
JESSICA CHASTAIN,30,seemingly in every other movie released in 2011 and hardly recognizable from one to the next.

Already Stars.
Oscar's sweet spot for Best Actress wins is late 20s to early 30s.
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY,26,serving mental patient realness inA Dangerous Method.
KIRSTEN DUNST,29,undoubtedly memorably victimized in Von Trier'sMelancholia.
MICHELLE WILLIAMS,30,doing biopic iconography forMy Week With Marilynand romance forTake This Waltz
EMMA STONE,22,who won't get nominated forThe Helpbut the enthusiasm about her career this year is totally hogging some of the spotlight that the other hopefuls are going to need.

Who do you think will be showered with love and media attention 'round the holidays this year?Who will come up wanting?Which of the newbies will ever have careers as big as the "already stars"?Share your projections / wild prophesies in the comments.
