submit to reddit

It’s that time of year again, as Hollywood’s finest find themselves, with alarming regularity, donning outfits that cost more than your house and jewellery worth more than you will earn in a lifetime. But awards season is all building to one supreme event, the Empire Awards Oscars on February 24. Ahead of that milestone, we assess the chances of each nominee in the major categories, and see who’s looking good ahead of the big night...

2013 Oscar Nominees Profiled: Best Supporting Actress | Amy Adams
Amy Adams

Film: The Master

Why She Will Win

1  Adams takes what could have been a generic “wife” role and turns it into something much more complex, maybe more complex than the leading men actually.
2 This is her fourth nomination, which surely means she’s due a win.
3 Adams deserves huge props for appearing in The Muppets and The Master in the same 12 months.

 

 Why She Won't Win

1  The Master doesn’t have a lot of momentum, and that could hurt her chances.
2 Aside from a few critics’ groups, she’s generally lost out to Hathaway. Will Oscar buck that trend? Probably not.
3 Will The Muppets stop the voters from taking her seriously?

1 Sally Field
Wasn't Sally Field's awkward speech given after her second win? In fact wasn't that sort of the point of it... "this time I feel you like me" etc etc? More
