Both deserved Oscar nominations, and I think Melissa deserved to win. Octavia should have won for Hidden Figures. McTeer had no business in that category. Bejo was lead. Chastain was a deserving nominee. I’d put Elle Fanning in Super 8 and J. Smith Cameron in Margaret next to McCarthy, Byrne and Chastain, and that is my lineup.August 3, 2017 at 8:13 am #1202173454
I loved Octavia and think she was completely deserving . I also loved Melissa and she was HYSTERICAL and amazing … they could have tied. Mcteer was horrible as was that movie .
I would have nominated

Such a spectacular year for supporting actress performances, and the Oscars picked one of the worst lineups of the decade. Should have gone with:
Sareh Bayat, A Separation
Jessica Chastain, The Tree of Life
Charlotte Gainsbourg, Melancholia
Carey Mulligan, Shame (*)
Shailene Woodley, The DescendantsAugust 3, 2017 at 4:35 pm #1202173931
Albert Nobbs was terrible and McTeer wasn’t much better.August 6, 2017 at 8:10 pm #1202176862

Re: “Get Out”. I really have to re-watch the film, but as for now, I prefer Betty Gabriel out of the three ladies. I’m also unsure about Alison Williams’ category placement – she is the female lead in this. But probably the weakest out of the three.
1. Melissa Leo
3. Michelle Pfeiffer
3. Octavia Spencer
4. Hong Chau
5. Judi Dench (why no one on earth considers her from Orient Express?)
Alt: Mary J. Blige, Holly Hunter, Betty Gabriel, Catherine Keener, Allison Williams, Juno Temple, Kristin Scott Thomas.
As for the win, I don’t mind any of the contenders’ possible victory, but obviously, it would be nice to see Pfeiffer finally winning.August 7, 2017 at 1:22 am #1202177117
Also, if you ask me, Betty Buckley gave on of the best supporting performances in “Split” this year. Wish the whole film would be as beloved as “Get Out” is – but it’s obvious that the race-orientated Hollywood is more supportive of the latter, even if the former is a WAY BETTER piece.August 7, 2017 at 5:14 am #1202177209
1. Michelle Pfeiffer

Out of the 3 Get Out ladies, who has the best chance? At first I thought Allison Williams but it seems that a lot of people prefer Betty Gabriel.
Prayer circles for Betty Gabriel! That Oscar nomination would be thrilling! Not seeing Allison Williams as being competitive or in range for a possible nomination. Currently predicting Catherine Keener.
