I'd send you my screeners except I haven't watched them yet. (Not that that stops me from making predictions.) Somehow I find the time to watch every Real Housewives and Top Chef episode within a week though.
OK, I love this post because I love speculating about this stuff. Jacki Weaver, no, for the reasons you said. Amy Adams and Melissa Leo, no, because they will split votes for The Fighter, esp once you factor in the non-actor votes because Amy Adams is more widely known and likely to be familiar to techie types, and the self-promotion stuff is going to hurt Leo among her own peeps.
So that leaves high-brow British vs. Hollywood western. I think the girl will take it just based on True Grit (classic western! this is how Hollywood likes to see itself) and because I'm sure there are very few voters who haven't found HBC annoying at some point in the past--too many voters who either seethed or snoozed through several of her movies after having been dragged there by a girl- or boyfriend whose taste was just a little too highbrow for them. They might toy with the idea of giving it to her out of a sense of its being "her turn" but I'm just not feeling it. "She's got Harry Potter money" they'll think to themselves and just a teensy bit vindictively check another box.
The benefits of this are twofold: (1) your skin will be nice; (2) should you become trapped in some rubble* it will be pretty easy to extract you.

If only there were some sort of educational professional who could explain to vs. too whose husband you didn't attempt to mow down...
That's a pervy password! Are you sure it's just going to be Mad Men and meowing?
