Helena Bonham Carter vs. Emma Thompson
Bonham Carter is, of course, our first-ever Anglo Fan Favorites women’s champ, and she came within an inch of prevailing over Katie McGrath in a highly contested final last year. The actress, who’ll hit BBC AMERICA screens as Liz Taylor in the upcoming Burton and Taylor movie, will always be a force, but her Oscar-winning Harry Potter co-star is no cowering wallflower. Thompson’s role as Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers in this fall’s Saving Mr. Banks has put her back in the spotlight and squarely in the mix for a second Oscar next year.
