Best Actress in a Leading Role:

Cate. Although a Sandra win is very possible. Her performance in "Gravity" was grounding and brilliant.
Best Actor in a Supporting Role:
- Barkhad Abdi
- Bradley Cooper
- Michael Fassbender
- Jonah Hill
- Jared Leto
Although, as an Academy member my vote would go to Jonah. He slayed in "Wolf".
Best Actress in a Supporting Role:
- Sally Hawkins
- Jennifer Lawrence
- Lupita Nyong'o
- Julia Roberts
- June Squibb
It's definitely Lupita's to lose with the amazing introductory performance in "12 Years". Jennifer could take it, but I think odds on second could go to Mrs. Squibb whose stirring performance in "Nebraska" was mesmerizing. And Oscar does love the older generation.
