I haven't see a lot of others either. But from what I hear The Help and Iron Lady may be big contenders. grin

Iron Lady is not up for best picture but I certainly wouldn't bet against Meryl Streep for best actress as she can be phenomenal . On a side note, I rate Kate Winslet on the same scale.

On the nominations of Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer as a special situation and that both should share the Best Supporting Actress award since their performances very much boosted each others. I loved both.
