87th Oscar Lead Actress Updates (2014-2015 Awards Season) (12/15/2014)

Julianne Moore looks like she may finally win her long-deserved Oscar this season with Still Alice. Surely the Academy can’t continue to hold out on her forever, right?

I’m not quite ready to utter the words “Academy Award Nominee Jennifer Aniston” just yet, especially with Marion Cotillard, Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Hilary Swank still in contention. But maybe she has more “friends” in the Academy than I’m giving her credit for. They do have a habit of rewarding popular and comedic stars who “make good” with a solid dramatic performance, and the field seems divided enough that she could slip in.
