“Nebraska”

Role: Kate Grant, the sniping, foul-mouthed wife of a dreamer who thinks he’s won a fortune.

In her favor: Her Mrs. Claus appearance sets you up for the sucker punch of her salty, bitter dialogue. She walks off with every scene she’s in.

Then again: Older actresses don’t often score in this category: There have been only 12 winners over 50 in 77 years.

“Blue Jasmine”

Role: Ginger, the salt-of-the-earth sister of Cate Blanchett’s flighty socialite.

In her favor: As foil to the brittle Jasmine, her warmth practically radiates off the screen. And she benefits from the Woody Allen touch.

Then again: She was largely ignored in the precursor awards —not an optimistic sign.
