Well this will be very straight-forward and simple. Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor have both been pre-determined for months now and provided the Academy’s voters don’t want to throw everyone for a loop, the best actress winner is not much of a guess.
Here are the other ladies who were nominated from Amy Adams, Sandra Bullock and Judi Dench (deservedly) and a token nomination for Meryl Streep.
But the winner? Oh, you already know. It’s the one name that didn’t appear in that last paragraph.
The Winner: Cate Blanchett
And beware red carpet camera folk…
