Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Until ‘Smashed’, the Sundance favorite that centers on a young school teacher struggling with alcoholism, Mary Elizabeth Winstead was best known for being that pretty face in ‘Live Free or Die Hard’ or ‘Scott Pilgrim’. Her insanely gripping and vulnerable leading turn in Smashed showed that she is more than just eye candy. It’s the type of role that starts conversations in awards circles. And if Hollywood is smart, they will listen.
