Can Anne Hathaway really get a nomination?

Many posters, like myself, have been including Anne Hathaway in their predictions for Rachel Getting Married, but there are many posters who have been skeptical about nomination her as well. We all remember her as Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries, when she began to become famous and become a household name. Hathaway started to gain the respect of many moviegoes once she took higher-profile adult roles, especially in The Devil Wears Prada alongside Meryl Streep and Emily Blunt, Brokeback Mountain, Havoc, and Get Smart.

Now, after being a presenter at the Oscars for the past couple of years, this time, she might be in a "box" with 4 other leading women on the tv screen just seconds before the winner's name is announced! When the Rachel Getting Married trailer came out a few weeks ago, she started to gain much more buzz than before for her "devil-ish" role as the sister from hell who returns home for her sister's wedding after going in-and-out of rehab, causing tension among her family, especially with her black-comedic one liners and drama. Yeah, big difference from Princess Diaries! Hathaway stars alongside Rosemarie DeWitt, Debra Winger, and Bill Irwin, and she is sure to be a major contender among other leading ladies like: Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road), Sally Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky), Angelina Jolie (Changeling), and her two Prada co-stars Meryl Streep (Doubt) and Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria).

Here is the trailer for Rachel Getting Married:

And also, Hathaway stars in Passengers, where she stars as a young therapist who counsels five plane crash survivors, and later sparks a romantic relationship with one of the survivors (Patrick Wilson) despite her better judgement. Here is the trailer for Passengers:
