Anne Hathaway's competition for Oscar

Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, and Kate Winslet all may give the ''Rachel Getting Married'' star a run for her money come awards season

Hathaway’s career-changing performance in Rachel Getting Married stands to earn the actress her first Oscar nomination. Here are some others who could hear their names called for Best Actress on Jan. 22.

Cate Blanchett
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Blanchett, who scored two acting nominations last year, ages over nine decades as Brad Pitt’s paramour.

Angelina Jolie
Changeling
She hasn’t been nominated since 2000, when she won for Girl, Interrupted. Her venture with Clint Eastwood could change that.

Nicole Kidman
Australia
Kidman’s previous collaboration with director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!) led to the first Best Actress nod of her career.

Kristin Scott Thomas
I’ve Loved You So Long
Those who have seen this French-language drama on the festival circuit say she’s devastating.

Meryl Streep
Doubt
Early buzz on Streep’s turn as a crusading nun has her scoring her 15th nomination — and possibly even her third win.

Kate Winslet
Revolutionary Road
Teaming for the first time with her husband, filmmaker Sam Mendes, could help Winslet land her sixth invitation to the Oscars.
