2013 Oscar Nominees Profiled: Best Supporting Actress | Sally Field
Sally Field

Film: Lincoln

Why She Will Win

1  This is probably the meatiest and most substantial part among the nominees, with the possible exception of Hunt.
2 Field plays a historical character, in corsets, suffering from mental illness. Surely those three ingredients guarantee a win?
3 Everyone likes Sally Field, who’s been a delightful presence all awards season, and they might want to give her the chance to give a better speech than she did when she first won Best Actress.

 

 Why She Won't Win

1  She appears to be thoroughly overshadowed by her onscreen husband, as Mary Todd Lincoln was in life. Oooh, method!
2 She has only won a few critics’ awards so far, not the big Oscar indicators.
3 That speech she gave when she first won Best Actress; will the Academy risk another?

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
