Naomi Watts has been trying to get an Oscar since forever. And you have to admit, she's come a long way.
And as an actress, she's gone through a lot on her quest to the top:
Then again, that didn't get in Meryl's way.
But considering that the film has no other discernible stars or director, no mention of the Prince Charles or The Queen side of Diana (if the cast list on IMDB is correct), and not a single fucking bar of Candle in the Wind in the trailer; Watts is going to either need to be flawless or it's going to need to be a pretty bad year for female performances to walk away with a win for this one.
But who knows, anything's possible right?
