Why? Vikander’s been on the verge of a breakthrough for the last few years; her role as Vera Brittain could make that happen. Currently slated for release in the U.K. on Jan. 2, 2015, Testament of Youth might get an Oscar-qualifying release before the end of the year…

Why not? If it gets a distributor. The breakthrough buzz surrounding Rosamund Pike and Felicity Jones is already deafening; can Vikander really become a player this season?

Ranking: No. 15 as of Sept. 12, 2014
