Newsweek is already handicapping the Oscar race. Reflecting back on the summer offerings, the magazine singles out various performances:

"There are already three possible best-actress nominees from films released since May—Julie Christie for "Away From Her," Angelina Jolie for "A Mighty Heart" and Marion Cotillard for "La Vie en Rose." More...

Personally, I tend to disagree about a possible nod for Angelina. The film fizzled out pretty quickly and (unfortunately) her private life tends to overshadow her work. Julie Christie, on the other hand, is definitely a contender. Add Cate Blanchett to the list (even though "The Golden Age" does not come out until the Fall), I bet she'll get in. She's always excellent, and the previews look amazing.
