Andrea Riseborough, "W.E"
Pro: Riseborough is the only actor to come through the early reviews for Madonna's second narrative feature unscathed. In fact, she's received some surprising critical acclaim for her portrayal of Wallis Simpson.
Con: It would be an upset of all upsets for her to make the field. She's a talent to be reckoned with, but this nomination is hard to imagine.
