'Margot at the Wedding'

<b>Contenders:</b> Nicole Kidman / Jennifer Jason Leigh / Noah Baumbach<br>
<br>
<b>Promise:</b> Kidman, of course, is herself a previous Oscar winner and one of the world’s biggest stars, inclined towards tough, not-so-obvious roles such as the one she plays in this film. Leigh is a veteran actress who has never landed a role that put her in the awards spotlight. And Baumbach was nominated for original screenplay for his precious film, “The Squid and the Whale.”<br>
<br>
<b>Weakness:</b> If a film doesn’t click with audiences right away, it can be a tough sell for awards attention. “Margot at the Wedding,” a prickly, emotionally raw look at people who are on the surface unlikable and off-putting, seemed to come and go from the season’s landscape in the blink of an eye.
