The late-arriving performance that will pop the most. We should never doubt Kidman this late in the gameShe has kept popping up in the awards conversation and doesn’t look to be going away. Is she a lead?Another long hanger-on, Chastain should be solidly inThe only aspect of Gucci that is hanging on is Gaga. She could be in solidly, she could miss…and neither would surprise meWhat happened to get us to this point. We may never know, but I still like her chances

I thought she was going to make it there for a minute, but I predict a missShocked she held on as long as she did. She’s not going to miss by muchI blame Spain’s lack of faith in the film’s International Feature hopesGive it another month, and maybe. But she is too newOne of the best performances of the year never got off the ground

Never materialized. I guess people think three acting Oscars is enoughHollywood loves to award brand-new stars and Jones seems primed. Could be in line for breakthrough awardsGot the best reviews for a meh film. Not exactly the huge comeback people were hoping forEveryone who has seen the movie loves her, but two problems: 1) foreign performance 2) no one is seeing the movieThe film has its defenders, and everyone is singling her performance. She will need precursor help to stick around
