Vera Farmiga

Nomination: Best Supporting Actress for Up in the Air

Before playing Alex, a businesswoman who begins a no-strings-attached affair with George Clooney in Up In The Air, Vera Farmiga , 36, was best known for her role as Matt Damon's love interest in 2006's The Departed. She admits that -- after years as a working actress -- finally receiving recognition from her acting peers is nice, but family time with her husband and son was her priority the morning the Academy Award nominations were announced. "We got the news in bed, the three of us cuddling," the mom of 1-year-old Fynn told USA Today. "My husband says he's going to build a mantel. He's a bit delusional, but very supportive."
