And Dr. Oscar's Predicted Academy Award Nominees Are...
Amy Adams, “Doubt”
Penelope Cruz, “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”
Viola Davis, “Doubt”
Marisa Tomei, “The Wrestler”
Kate Winslet, “The Reader”
There are six actresses competing for five slots here. So who gets left out?
I think it will be Taraji P. Henson who plays Brad Pitt’s caretaker in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” She was fine in the role, but I don’t think that she brought anything special to what is essentially a stock character.
If a wave of support for “Benjamin Button” does in fact bring Henson in, watch for her to knock off one of the supporting players in “Doubt.”
