3. Sandra Bullock Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close-The trailer to this film looks exceptional and Bullock looks very committed to her performance. In addition she is recently off her win, making her a current favorite of the academy.
4. Octavia Spencer-The Help-Spencer is gaining a lot of traction for her witty performance in The Help, a film that has become very popular with audiences making it a front runner.
5. Shailene Woodley-The Descendants-She is a newcomer and it seems that she is really good. The film is getting good buzz giving Woodley a very good chance at a nomination.
At the moment I have no one else in mind who could compete in this category. I will update as the awards season begins.
