Post Best Actress Nominees 2015
Here is what i believe the Best Actress nominations will be. If i am correct in all five i will gloat.

1) Reese Witherspoon: Wild
2) Rosamund Pike: Gone Girl
3) Shailene Woodley: The Fault in our Stars
4) Jessica Chastain: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby
5) Felicity Jones: The Theory of Everything.

Its pretty much Reese Witherspoon's to lose.

Does anything i'm crazy in my predictions.

I don't think Jessica Chastain is going to get nominated for The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. I'm not sure voters know what to make of that film. The "Them" version hasn't generated much [box office] interest, although maybe that will change when "Him" and "Her" come out. *shrug* ilovemovies' five seem perfectly reasonable, although I wouldn't be surprised if Meryl Streep weasels her way in. She has a tendency to do that. It doesn't matter if Into the Woods ends up sucking. She won for the The Iron Lady, after all, and that film was garbage.

Patricia Arquette should get nominated for Boyhood, but that may wind up in supporting.

I know it's not very likely, but having caught up with the movie the other day, I would love to see Shailene Woodley pick up a nomination for "The Fault in Our Stars" -- that scene where she

I've heard she's even better in Gregg Araki's White Bird in a Blizzard. Might have more chance there?

I would say she has more of a chance for The Fault in Our Stars, a role in which it's far from unlikely she'd receive a nomination for. White Bird in a Blizzard is being distributed by Magnolia and they've never been known for their high-profile releases or campaigning their Oscar potentials. I have seen neither film so I can't comment on which one is better.
