    here are mine, what are yours?

    1. Lesley Manville for Phantom Thread. A superb multi-layered performance. She had deserved to win for Another Year (2010). She is a wonderful stage actress who occasionally appears in films and television. She is the most interesting character of the five nominees and she delivers such a fascinating nuanced performance.

    2&3. This is a tie for me: Allison Janney for I, Tonya; and Laurie Metcalf for Lady Bird. I could truly be happy for either of them. Both are excellent and play somewhat similar critical mothers of daughters. Metcalf’s character is a shade warmer, less of a villainess. Both are wonderful in their roles.

    4. Mary J Blige for Mudbound. Carey Mulligan gave the best performance (was she a lead or support? She was right on the borderline) in the fillm, but Blige was good. I know others disparage her performance but I thought it was fine, just not Oscar-worthy.

    5. Octavia Spencer for The Shape Of Water. she plays this role that she always plays well but it’s not Oscar-nomination worthy. She isn’t bad, she just isn’t great.

    There were much better performances that didn’t make it in: Catherine Deneuve, Holly Hunter, Melissa Leo, Tatiana Maslany, Julianne Nicholson, Miranda Richardson, Bria Vinaite, just to name a few…

    1. Laurie Metcalf
    1. Leslie Manville – still “up” about this well-deserved nomination.
    1. Allison Janney

    I would have no problem with any of the above winning.

    4. Octavia Spencer – shouldn’t win a second Oscar for this.
    5. Mary J. Blige – I’m pulling for “Mystery of Love” for best song, but wouldn’t mind if Blige wins for “Mighty River” because I love Mary J.

    Still have high hopes for Metcalf.

    In the end Lady Bird got a Best Picture nom and I, Tonya underperformed.

    1. Metcalf
    2. Janney
    3. Manville
    4. Spencer

    100. Blige (worst nominee of the decade)

    1. Metcalf – Gives the most well rounded performance and actually seems the most realistic human being of the set. She’s grounded, organic and natural and she exhibits a performance that embodies the film completely. She compliments the story narrative and she enhances and enriches both the film and her lead actress. Can’t ask for a better or more complete performance from a Supporting Actress this award cycle. Reminds me a ton of Patricia Arquette from Boyhood.

    2. Janney is a cartoon character that could never be found in real life, which is where her portrayal falters. I keep comparing this to the likes of J.K. Simmons and Monique for their work in Whiplash and Precious  which is what this film needed, but ultimately didn’t get. Not one ounce of this performance feels real, so the horror aspects are instead played for black comedy based laughs that never feel funny. That being said her eccentricities gives her performance a feeling of electricity. But not jolts in her performance can escape the fact that it’s just not the best performance this season. There was one scene where Janney touched on something that seemed honest. When Tonya comes back to see her mom to reconcile before her second shot at the Olympics. That was honest.

    3. Octavia Spencer – Honestly this isn’t a great performance. But she has enough character in her to skate by into third place. She’s done this performance before in both Hidden Figures and The Help.

    4. Lesley Manville – Not sure what she does that was award worthy. She was like a fly on the wall the entire film. I would have replaced her with Holly Hunter, or Hong Chau.

    5. Mary J. Blidge – I haven’t seen her performance yet, so I have to put her in last place.

    1. Janney

    2. Metcalf

    3. Mulligan

    4. Manville

    5. Spencer

    Pretending Blige’s nom actually went to her more deserving co-star Carey Mulligan.

    Haven’t seen Manville yet.

    4. Blige: obviously the weakest

    3. Spencer: doesn’t need a second win

    2. Janney: probably the only winner I’ll be happy with on Oscar night

    1. Metcalf: at first I had no preference between her and Janney, then I leaned towards Janney… but now every time I see a clip of Metcalf in Lady Bird, I find myself rooting for her more and more

    I haven’t seen Phantom Thread, but of the other four:

    1. Metcalf – brilliant performance

    2. Janney – totally solid and I can see why she’s the favorite of many.

    3. Blige – I liked her a lot in Mudbound

    4. Spencer – she’s really good in everything but I’m not sure she was nomination-worthy in this one.

    1. Metcalf, probably the most fully realized character
    2. Manville, solid performance between two towering ones
    3. Spencer, for the iconic DON’T DO THIS ELISA if nothing else
    4. Janney, too much of a one-dimensional cartoon
    5. Blige, multiple co-stars were better

    Grr all these surprise snubs have suddenly put me behind

    1. Metcalf

    2. Janney

    3. Spencer (does she really have to be nominated every time she plays a sassy black woman with a heart of gold?)

    Looking forward to seeing Manville, just hope the movie isn’t as boring as the trailer looks.

    Chau should really be here and I wish Tatiana Maslany had received some recognition.
