Oscar Present?
Role: Coretta Scott King, who helped lead the African-American Civil Rights Movement with her husband, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo)

Nominations:

Festivals:

  • AFI Fest (2014) – World Premiere

Why? Playing Coretta Scott King in a picture front-runner about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. has already netted her some awards attention. Could be similar to Helena Bonham Carter’s nod for The King’s Speech (2011)?

Why not? The supporting actress race is already crowded.

Ranking: No. 6 as of Nov. 25, 2014
