The story of this awards season thus far has been its unpredictability. Best Picture remains a toss-up with a slight advantage given to “Lincoln.” Who knows what’s going on with Best Director? And every acting category but one is set up for a potential shocker. Yes, in the realm of 2012 film awards, and specifically this Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, there is only one near certainty, the Best Supporting Actress category.
After begging and pleading for a nomination — and getting very naked in “Love and Other Drugs” — it appears Anne Hathaway’s awards luck has finally turned. Her brief but potent performance as the tragic Fantine in “Les Misérables” has been the most talked-about female supporting role of the year and the most agreed-upon aspect in the mixed reviews for the mega-musical.
Her only competition could come in the form of Sally Field, who beat out Hathaway in a few critics’ awards and could use her meatier role to sneak past the musical performance.
Who Should Win: For as often as Hathaway’s awards aspirations are discussed, not enough attention has been paid to Amy Adams’ rapidly expanding number of nominations. This year marks her fourth Globe and Oscar nominations, and while she didn’t receive nearly as much buzz as her male co-stars, Adams’ subtle, powerful performance in “The Master” deserves more recognition.
Who Will Win: Nicole Kidman in “The Paperboy.” Just kidding. Expect this one to go to Hathaway, so prepare yourself for the hurricane force winds of emotion in that acceptance speech. There will be singing and at least one “dreamed a dream” pun.
