Portman, Swinton, Lawrence, Bening, Kidman, Manville, Hathaway, Williams: who gets left out?
Anne Hathaway, "Love and Other Drugs"
Pro: Slowly becoming one of the industry and public's most beloved actresses, Hathaway was previously nominated for "Rachel Getting Married." As a woman suffering from Parkinson's disease, she has more than enough dramatic material to show her stuff. She's probably also a lock for a Golden Globe nod since the HFPA adore her.
Con: The picture will get mixed reviews at best and pre-release polling is signaling it will be a huge financial disappointment. That won't be good for Hathaway's Academy Award chances.
