Oscars 2009 - Best Supporting Actress

Okay, Geek Forcers, let’s give this a try. I’m going to list the nominees for this year’s major Academy Awards and we’re going to pick who we think should win and who we think will win. And, if we’re feeling particularly snarky, we’re going to rant about how hopelessly irrelevant the Oscars have become.

Let’s start with the nominees for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.

  1. Amy Adams, Doubt
  2. Penelope Cruz, Vicky Cristina Barcelona
  3. Viola Davis, Doubt
  4. Taraji P. Henson, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
  5. Marisa Tomei, The Wrestler

What say you? Do the women from Doubt cancel each other out? Does Marisa Tomei gain or lose points for taking her gear off in The Wrestler? And has anyone out there actually seen Vicky Cristina Barcelona? Chime in in the comments section below.
