Oscar Best Supporting Actress

Vera Farmiga, "Up in the Air"
Anna Kendrick, "Up in the Air"
Mo'Nique, "Precious"
Julianne Moore, "A Single Man"
Samantha Morton, "The Messenger"

Awards magnet Mo'Nique is the clear front-runner here, having picked up trophies from SAG, BFCA, and the Golden Globes. "Up in the Air's" Anna Kendrick also picked up a few critics' prizes, while Kendrick's costar Vera Farmiga also seems a good bet. The Screen Actors Guild overlooked Julianne Moore, but her boozy BFF in "A Single Man" should do the trick with the Academy. As "Nine's" buzz continues to fade, Golden Globe and SAG Award nominee Penélope Cruz may find herself edged out. "Inglourious Basterds' " Diane Kruger made the SAG list, but the likeliest stealth contender is "The Messenger's" Samantha Morton, who has snuck in at the last minute before.
