I think Sissy will win it. The odds seem quite in her favor.
Nicole had an amazing year coming through a tough divorce and had two great films that opened and did well. Unfortunately, she got nominated for the wrong film. Moulin Rouge was either loved or hated by the critics and as such, I don't see Nicole winning the Oscar for it.
Halle was amazing in Monster's Ball and she won the SAG award for it. She also has awards for Introducing Dorothy Dandrige (a great film). Halle is a great dramatic actress; however, I don't see her winning it here because she will always be viewed as a sex symbol first.
Judi Dench- an amazing actress. Won three years ago. Too much of a long shot.
Renee- Wonderful in one of my favorite movies from last year. However, with so many dramatic actresses in this category, she is an even longer shot than Judi Dench. In fact, I'm still shocked she got nominated!
