Oscar odds: Best Actress

You know, everyone is making a big deal about Bening vs. Swank II, but don't you think Kate Winslet has a beef, too? Oh, not about whether she can win, but how many Oscar nominations she has to get before people stop asking, "What was Leo really like?"

Annette Bening, "Being Julia": Did you know she's from Topeka, Kansas? And we know how that's the cradle of award-winning actors ... ODDS: 4-1.
Catalina Sandino Moreno, "Maria Full of Grace": Will win as many awards as Maria Conchita Alonso. ODDS: 25-to-1.
Imelda Staunton, "Vera Drake": I'm starting to realize just how uninformed I am in this category. Wasn't Vera Drake one of the waitresses at Mel's Diner? ODDS: 7-to-1.
Hilary Swank, "Million Dollar Baby": Rumor is she really just wanted to prove her ass-kicking skills from "The Next Karate Kid" were for real. ODDS: 9-to-2.
Kate Winslet, "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind": Not a bad performance, but anyone who takes screen time away from Kirsten Dunst dancing on a bed in her underwear has an uphill battle. ODDS: 20-to-1.
