Best Actress in a Supporting Role

Amy Adams, “The Master
Sally Field, “Lincoln
Anne Hathaway, “Les Misérables
Helen Hunt, “The Sessions
Jacki Weaver, “Silver Linings Playbook” 

Analysis
January 2013

Whittled down to the most likely of contenders, this has been a disappointingly barren category. And it’s not so much for the performances themselves, but really those that will likely be recognized. I’d take Brit Marling’s performance in The Sound of My Voice over every leading contender. And the fact that both Amy Adams and Emily Blunt are on the outside looking is absurd.

But as consensus builds around the top five, it’s looking more and more assured that Anne Hathaway takes the category. Though it’s not quite the sweep that most are believing – Sally Field is undeniably a contender here.
