Why? A Collette comeback? Her turn as a woman battling cancer may take hold this season if co-star Drew Barrymore brings the box-office heat.

Why not? But box office is a big question mark with this one – not to mention, more importantly, how critics will feel about this relationship dramedy. Besides, Hollywood may have more interest in recognizing Barrymore for the first time than in giving Collette a sophomore nod. Is category fraud a possibility?
