natalie portman indie spirit Oscars 2011: Is there any stopping Natalie Portman after the Spirit Awards?

With her victory at the Independent Spirit Awards, Natalie Portman is now 3 for 3 in the 2011 award season. The only thing left? Sunday’s Oscars.

The best actress competition was perhaps the most-watched category at this year’s Spirits. With the addition of “Greenberg” star Greta Gerwig — The Spirits nominate 6 actresses, with the Oscars only giving nods to 5 — the line-up Portman beat is the same one we’ll see at the Academy Awards.

She’s joined by Annette Bening (“The Kids Are All Right”), Jennifer Lawrence (“Winter’s Bone”), Nicole Kidman (“Rabbit Hole”) and Michelle Williams (“Blue Valentine”) — all of whom she’s beaten previously at either the Screen Actors Guild Awards or the Golden Globes.

So is there any chance for an upset? At this point, we would have to call this the Oscars’ surest thing. What do you think?
