First of all, I forgot to say this before, I'm SO HAPPY that Brandan Gleeson got nominated for The Guard.
It's such a brilliant, hilarious and touching performance. YAY.

I wonder how Jennifer Lawrence would've fared had Winter's Bone been released this year.
It breaks my heart to see it go down like that. She had so much buzz coming out of Sundance and even going into the awards season, but somehow Critics never really got fully behind it. Maybe the whole situation was just too similar to Jennifer Lawrence last year and everyone was just over it? Whatever it is though, it's shameful. She gave a stunning performance. I agree her performance was much better than Close, but I will also say that I'm glad Close is getting nominated, if only because she was robbed of her Oscar for Dangerous Liaisons. I'd rather Streep, Williams or Davis was left out tbh (though I've not seen the first two performances so I can't say whether their awards are deserving or not).
As far as Rooney Mara goes, I just don't see it happening. Yeah, she got a Globe nomination, but that's literally the only thing she got (well that Breakthrough at NBR, but meh) so I don't think one nomination magically transforms her status. She'll need a great box office and lots of buzz the next month or so to overtake Close, the only vulnerable actress in the top five. But lets not think Glenn will go away without a fight. She'll campaign her *** off and she's already got a good narrative going on, so things are looking good for her. True her movie isn't getting good reviews, but neither did DiCaprio's. Plus there are instances of actors getting nominated for terribly reviewed movies (Sean Penn for I Am Sam, Cate Blanchett for Elizabeth 2, etc.).
