Yes, and the fifth nominee...there will be a huge fight for that spot. I was hoping Jennifer Aniston would get it for her heart-stopping performance in "The Good Girl," but that film never caught on.
If they want to guarantee Nicole an Oscar, they should push her in Supporting so she doesn't have to compete with Meryl, who is also supposedly brilliant in "The Hours." But looks like that's not going to happen.
Who does this benefit? Michelle Pfeiffer in "White Oleander," who is considering running in the Supporting category and will be a lock for her first Oscar if she does.
