Annette Bening, Julianne Moore vie for Oscars

Both to be campaigned for Best Actress nods

Annette Bening and Julianne Moore will be campaigned for Best Actress nods at next year's Oscars, Focus Features confirms.

They play a couple in "The Kids Are All Right."

As Entertainment Weekly points out, their nomination would be the sixth time a movie featured two Best Actress nominees: Thelma and Louise (Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon), Terms of Endearment (Shirley Maclaine and Debra Winger), The Turning Point (Anne Bancroft and Shirley Maclaine), Suddenly, Last Summer (Katharine Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor), All About Eve (Anne Baxter and Bette Davis). Of that group, only Shirley Maclaine took home the trophy.

Tuesday's issue of The Hollywood Reporter examines how last weekend's No. 1 earner, "The Town," helmed by Ben Affleck, became an Oscar contender.
