Best Actress

While this is still basically a three-woman race between The Iron Lady's Meryl Streep, The Help's Viola Davis and My Week with Marilyn's Michelle Williams, the somewhat surprising nomination of Rooney Mara for her gritty, transformative turn in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo could make things interesting come Oscar night. If there's a dark horse to bet on, she's it.

And the nominees are... 

Glenn Close, Albert Nobbs
Viola Davis, The Help
Rooney Mara, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Meryl Streep, The Iron Lady
Michelle Williams, My Week with Marilyn
