The Low Down:

Renée Zellweger has continued to dominate all season long, with none of the other contenders ever really having any winning momentum. The critic’s favorite, Lupita Nyong’o, was snubbed. Perhaps there’s a world in which Scarlett Johansson upsets (does that double nomination mean anything?), but I may be thinking of last year’s Glenn Close/Olivia Colman debacle too much.
