'August: Osage County'
Argument for: Pedigree in spades: Adapted from a play that won the Pulitzer and Tony, headlined by perennial nominee Streep and past winner Julia Roberts.
Argument against: Some critics, reviewing from the Toronto International Film Festival, found the movie's melodrama exhausting. A reflexive nomination for Streep might not extend to the film.
