Jodie Foster

Dark Horse Lead Actress: 'The Brave One'

Why: Just being Jodie Foster — one of the few to grow up in front of the camera and not be permanently scarred — means she’s always in contention, but “The Brave One” received mixed reviews that might work against her. It’s a gutsy performance, one that carries the weight of the film. In a wide-open lead actress race — as opposed to last year’s coronation — it would be foolish to bet against her.
