Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson is pushing (or half-pushing) a “Helena Bonham Carter could win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar” scenario. Reason #1: HBC is due. Reason #2: HBC was charming at the recent Oscar Nominee Luncheon. Reason #3: HBC is riding the King’s Speech coattails. If Thompson had briefly addressed or even mentioned the over-and-done-with Melissa Leo ad issue I might have given this some thought, but she’s just indulging in whimsy, methinks.
