Kristen Stewart Possible Oscar 2011 Best Supporting Actress

Kristen Stewart's portrayal of a 16 year old strip dancer in Welcome to the Rileys was included in the HitFix 2011 Best Supporting Actress Oscar Contenders.

Pro: She gives a strong and sympathetic performance as a young hooker who agrees to try and turn her life around under the guidance of a visiting salesman (James Gandolfini). She also gave a pretty great turn as Joan Jett in "The Runaways" earlier this year and has an impressive resume that has built up goodwill with roles in "Into the Wild," "The Yellow Handkerchief" and "Adventureland."

Con:
The problem is the movie's distributor may not send out screeners (a big need for this one) and there's that "Twilight Saga" elephant in the room. She might need that series to be over before she's taken seriously again by the industry.
