The FilmEdge review staff split our picks for Best Actress in a Leading Role tonight: Joan picked Jennifer Lawrence in WINTER’S BONE as her favorite lead actress performance, but admitting that Natalie Portman will likely prevail for her lauded work in BLACK SWAN. Scott agreed with the latter assessment, calling Portman a virtual lock with all the pre-Oscar momentum.
But did you prefer multiple Academy nominee Nicole Kidman in RABBIT HOLE, or worthy underdog Michelle Williams for her role in BLUE VALENTINE? Or might Annette Bening create an upset for her work in THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT?
