Poll: Will pregnancy boost Natalie Portman's Oscar hopes?
Of course, that leads us kudo nuts over here at Awards Tracker to wonder: Can pregnancy boost her Oscar chances to win? After all, everybody loves a mama-to-be.
Well, over at InContention, Guy Lodge has done a nifty job of rounding up examples of when pregnancy may have helped a contender (Eva Marie Saint, Meryl Streep, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Rachel Weisz) and when it didn't seem to matter (Judy Garland, Glenn Close, Marcia Gay Harden, Cate Blanchett – even Annette Bening).
