Woman to Woman

In the final days of the 2011 Oscar campaign season, the big guns are emerging with both barrels blazing. Yesterday Julia Roberts spoke out on behalf of Javier Bardem's worthiness for a Best Actor nom for "Biutiful", and today, Kathryn Bigelow stepped forward for the film "Winter's Bone". Bigelow won the Best Director Oscar last year for "The Hurt Locker", becoming the first woman to ever win the award, and now she's campaigning for another female-helmed movie. By all accounts, director Debra Granik's "Winter's Bone"is a solid darkhorse to take a Best Picture nom, and star Jennifer Lawrence could not only get nominated for Best Actress, but could possibly even win.
