It's a battle for Best Actress!
The nominations aren't even out yet, but insiders are speculating that Annette Bening and Hilary Swank will be duking it out for the THIRD time at the 2010 Academy Awards.
Yes, these two have faced each other before - first, in 1999 when Hilary won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry against Annette Bening's role in American Beauty.
The two went head-to-head again in 2004 when Hilary won her second Oscar for Million Dollar Baby, winning over Annette in Being Julia.
So far, Annette has received rave reviews in The Kids Are All Right and Mother and Child. Meanwhile, Hilary is getting Oscar buzz for her upcoming movie, Conviction, which means these two are very likely to meet each other again at next year's Oscars.
Will Annette finally prevail and win against Hilary's reigning Queen of the Oscars??
Who do U want to see win the Oscar next year??
