From Penelope Cruz to Rachel Weisz to Emily Blunt what a weak class it is
Robin Wright Penn, "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee"
Previous nominations or wins: None
Pros: The film has gotten mixed reviews, but Wright, as always, received high praise. Of all the actresses without a nomination on this list her omission is the most glaring.
Cons: Even with a strong publicity agency working with small distributor Screen Media on "Pippa Lee's" release, it's hard to imagine Wright Penn getting the push to land a nomination. She'd need a lot of help and luck along the way.
