Michelle Williams for Best Actress. Even though I was not a huge fan of Blue Valentine as a movie (didn't find the central relationship compelling), I thought Michelle's acting was off the charts. I've been a fan since Dawson's Creek, I love her style, and hope to spot her around Brooklyn one of these days. Also having seen Black Swan, I think Michelle showed more range in Blue Valentine than Natalie Portman in BS ... I'm just saying.
Hailee Steinfeld for Best Supporting Actress. Okay, I love the Old West, especially stories of women in the Old West, and as a result True Grit is one of my favorite films of late. Hailee completely brought the no-nonsense heroine Mattie Ross to life and she beat out 15,000 other young women to do so.
