Sandra Bullock - "Gravity"
Pros: Bullock won the Oscar, a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for her work in "The Blind Side." She also shared a SAG Awards ensemble honor for "Crash." The accolades for her work in Alfonso Cuarón's masterpiece, however, have been strong and downright glowing. She isn't just a lock for a nomination, she could actually win it all.
Cons: Not many. Right now this category is seemingly between Bullock and Cate Blanchett for the win. It's a race that may sway back and forth between the Globes, SAG and BAFTA until we finally find out who will win it all on March 2.
