She is an amazing actress.  Be nice to see her win and at those odds, worth a bet on it too.

Not a huge fan of Matthew, until the True Detective that is (I recommend this Show to everyone).
I feel a bit sorry for Leo though.
On the bright side, I am betting next year the Leo won't get the award, it seems like a sure bet :)

Wow, I am quite surprised to see Romania so high on the favourites list! Our song was chosen by the public last weekend and I don't think it has a chance to win the contest. But who knows?
