Countdown to the Oscars – Our picks for Actress in a Supporting Role

The 84th showing of the Academy Awards will air on ABC on Sunday the 26th of February and we at Geek for E have decided to join in on the fun and give you our predictions of who will win.

Today we start our push to the Oscars and the big 6! That’s right, the categories we’ve been waiting for. And the push starts TODAY with us making our picks for Best Actress in a Supporting Role!
And with that…the nominations go to…
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE …the nominations go to:
Bernice Bejo for “The Artist”
Jessica Chastain for “The Help”
Melissa McCarthy for “Bridesmaids”
Janet McTeer for “Albert Nobbs”
Octavia Spencer for “The Help”

Denise: Melissa McCarthy is everybody’s darling this year (and well she should be; she’s been fabulous since Sookie in Gilmore Girls), but I absolutely adored “Look I’m Everywhere This Year” Jessica Chastain’s bubbly airhead with a heart of gold in The Help.  Chastain has delivered some quality performances this year (Take Shelter, Coriolanus and even, god help me, Tree of Life) and should be rewarded for it.

Matthew: Jessica Chastain for The Help.

Tatiana: I’m definitely going with Chastain. Did anyone else see The Debt? I think we have a breakout star.

Rock: This one’s gonna shock the world.  The Academy is gonna go with the mainstream crowd and ‘knight’ Melissa McCarthy for Bridesmaids.  You heard it here first.

Alex: Dang it Rock!!! I had the same pick and was gonna shout it from the mountain top! Yes…the winner will be Melissa McCarthy for Bridesmaids and the pick will be one that wasn’t expected for a lot of people.
Score card…
Denise – Jessica Chastain
Matthew – Jessica Chastain
Tatiana – Jessica Chastain
Rock – Melissa McCarthy
Alex – Melissa McCarthy
