Hit Fix has made a list of people they think could be nominated for the 2011 Oscars, and Kristen Stewart is on the list of best supporting actress Oscar contenders for her work in Welcome to the Rileys!
Pro: She gives a strong and sympathetic performance as a young hooker who agrees to try and turn her life around under the guidance of a visiting salesman (James Gandolfini). She also gave a pretty great turn as Joan Jett in "The Runaways" earlier this year and has an impressive resume that has built up goodwill with roles in "Into the Wild," "The Yellow Handkerchief" and "Adventureland."
Con: The problem is the movie's distributor may not send out screeners (a big need for this one) and there's that "Twilight Saga" elephant in the room. She might need that series to be over before she's taken seriously again by the industry.
Others on the list include Helena Bonham-Carter, Diane Weist, Amy Adams, and Sissy Spacek. That's some pretty tough competition.
Speaking of nominations, the Eclipse soundtrack has been nominated for the 2010 American Music Awards! Click here to vote for it!
