Julianne Moore (The Hours)

Best Supporting Actress

2003 wins: L.A. Film Critics

Nominated: SAG Awards; BAFTA; Chicago Film Critics; Golden Satellite Awards

Oscar pedigree: Nominated: “Boogie Nights” (1997), “The End of the Affair” (1999)

Moore on the importance of supporting roles: “I’m looking for films; I’m not looking for characters.” (Entertainment Weekly, Dec.)

What we said: “Moore’s role represents an interesting variation on her anguished 1950s housewife in ‘Far From Heaven.'” — Todd McCarthy (Dec. 11)

What they said: “Ms. Moore brings to the role the same luminous demureness that colors her portrayal of an innocent, well-meaning Connecticut housewife whose world shatters in ‘Far From Heaven.'” — Stephen Holden, The New York Times

This could be the night: Although she’s not the favorite, Moore is respected, tackles daring roles and might be the most decorated actress without an Oscar.

Then comes the rub: Voters may give her the best actress win for the somewhat snubbed “Far From Heaven” and leave it at that.
