Two young, kind of newcomers who share a demoted position due to campaign strategies in a really strong year for leading actresses. Both leading roles in two films whose subject matter belongs to ''the minorities''. I assume both will have their respective support, and that may be translated in vote split, as a sign of indecision on which performance of the two is the best. That's the reason I'm still forecasting a Winslet or Leigh victory. Add to that the hypothetical fact of those voters who may have the same dilemma I would have in their position: to vote for the best performance of the category, or for the best SUPPORTING performance.
