Michelle Williams, "My Week with Marilyn"
Pro: A two-time nominee, the 31-year-old actress doesn't exactly resemble Marilyn Monroe, but it's an understatement to say she complete channels the screen icon's persona in "My Week." She carries the movie and literally captivates the screen unlike any of her previous performances.
Con: It would be shocking to see her not get nominated. Moreover, it may be a race between herself, Streep and Davis for the win.
