Two Blondes Countdown to the Oscars: Best Actress

The Nominees:

Annette Bening The Kids Are All Right

Nicole Kidman Rabbit Hole

Jennifer Lawrence Winter’s Bone

Natalie Portman Black Swan

Michelle Williams Blue Valentine

WHO WE THINK WILL WIN

Jessica:  Natalie Portman

Alison:  Natalie Portman

WHO WE WANT TO WIN

Jessica:  You should know, and I think I have mentioned this before on this blog, but I will watch anything with dance in it.  We’re talking Xanadu, Honey, Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance.  ANYTHING.  Imagine my delight when a dance movie or TV show actually turns out to be enjoyable on its own merits, not just because of the dance numbers.  Natalie Portman is as good as you’ve heard in The Black Swan.  There is a reason she had been winning all the awards so far this season – she deserves them.  She is who I would vote for.  Note:  I have not seen Rabbit Hole or Blue Valentine.

Alison:  Natalie Portman, Natalie Portman, Natalie Portman. This has got to be one of the best performances I’ve ever seen and one of the most intense films you will ever watch. To reiterate, word for word, what Jessica wrote: There is a reason she had been winning all the awards so far this season – she deserves them. Not to mention, she deserves an award for being a very cute pregnant woman.
