Janet McTeer, "Albert Nobbs"
Pro: Nominated in the best actress category in 2000 for "Tumbleweeds," McTeer arguably outshines her co-star and expected best actress nominee, Glenn Clos, as a closeted lesbian who lives as a man in order to survive 19th Century Ireland.
Con: Overall, "Nobbs" will not get stellar reviews, but the performances will. Is that enough for McTeer to break through a crowded field?
