While the competition was stiff in this category, the FilmEdge review staff all agreed that Melissa Leo will prevail in the category of Best Supporting Actress for her powerful work in THE FIGHTER when the Oscars are handed out tonight. But do you have a different pick?
Are you a believer in Academy voting history stats which say that Leo and co-star Amy Adams will split votes from THE FIGHTER, or will she buck the odds? Will a split vote let Helena Bonham Carter pull ahead in votes for her role as the Queen in THE KING’S SPEECH? Do you go along with Academy history to pick young Hailee Steinfeld as winner for TRUE GRIT since so many younger actors have won the gold in this category? Or will dark horse nominee Jacki Weaver pull the ultimate upset in a very competitive category for her work in ANIMAL KINGDOM?
