Back to Academy Awards 2012: One Star, Two (or More) Oscar-Worthy Performances
Jessica Chastain in 'The Help'
Odds for a nomination: OK. Unknown a year ago, Chastain shone in no fewer than six movies this year. Her comic-relief role in 'The Help' will be the one most people have seen and enjoyed. However, she'll have to compete against her co-star, eye-rolling housemaid Octavia Spencer, for supporting actress love.
