Portman, Swinton, Lawrence, Bening, Kidman, Manville, Hathaway, Williams: who gets left out?
Annette Benning, "The Kids Are All Right"
Pro: Many feel the three time Oscar nominee was robbed from a deserved win in 2004 for "Being Julia." She has the most emotional role in this picture, plays against type and, frankly, she's due.
Con: Is the role dramatic enough? More importantly, she needs to campaign for it. Will she work the circuit once more after failing three times before?
