Character bio: In Iris, Winslet plays writer and philosopher Iris Murdoch in her more formative years. Her story line focuses on Murdoch’s relationship with future husband John Bayley when they first meet in the mid-1950s.

Oscar odds: While she plays the younger Murdoch–a woman revered by men and openly bisexual–with flare, the Oscar will more likely go to Jennifer Connelly for A Beautiful Mind. But Kate, be patient, it’s bound to happen at some time. —Guylaine Cadorette
