    By the next Brie Larson, I mean a smaller and pretty much unknown actress who had small tv roles (the best part of United States of Tara), movie roles, works with so many people, and still managed to stand out and be memorable. Then bam! Comes out with a Short Term 12 putting her on the awards map, and then gets a Room and wins making their career huge.

    I think Melissa Benoist is a strong possibility. She started off on Glee, had Whiplash, is getting great reviews with Supergirl, and has a great performance (while limited, but the best scene) in Patriot’s Day. She has great potential to follow her path.

    What do you guys think?

    ^^^This.

    She’s not exactly new but I feel Sarah Paulson could if “Rebel in the Rye” is good. she basically bubbled under the surface for so long in tv cameos (even with a GG nom in 2006) always playing the second fiddle Lange, Peters & Bates on Horror Story and is now winning everything award going for OJ and if Ocean’s 8 is a commercial hit I can see her getting bigger. It helps that’s she’s also had Supporting in best picture nominated and winning “Carol” and “12 Years”.

    Rebecca Hall. Her performance in “Christine” will not be forgotten.

    There’s a big difference between a Brie Larson, and a Sarah Paulson. Paulson might not be huge, but Larson before Room would’ve been lucky to be as big as Paulson is right now. Even with Room and her Oscar, Sarah Paulson might be bigger than Larson. At this point, Paulson is almost certain to win every tv award out there for a hit show, not just a random tv film, for example, Larson wasn’t even close to something like that. Plus she has enough AHS fame, another thing Larson never had.

    Once Sarah Paulson enters a film awards race, plenty of people will know who she is. Not many knew about Larson, Short Term 12, Tara and most likely forgot or never noticed she was even in 21 Jump Street.

    Rebecca Hall makes sense though. Like Larson, take Jennifer Connelly as another example of somebody who was practically ignored for a great performance and won right after that. It happens often…could happen for her, you never know.

    Mahershala Ali this year would be a better comparisson, going by what the original post says about Larson. Treme, Hunger Games (only not many actually remember that…) but then becomes an Emmy nominee for House of Cards (big show) and is currently on Luke Cage and Hidden Figures….he’s very small, but worked with plenty of people, and now is the likely winner of BSA.

    Point of this comment? There are many performances that have been snubbed but are still talked about.

    Agreed on Melissa Benoist. I really liked her in Whiplash and Patriot’s Day but she’s still far from her Short Term 12.

    To me, in every small role Brie looked restrained, doing the most she was allowed to. Melissa looks the other way, like she’s into her limits already, barely reaching. But she’s constantly improving, every time she outdo herself. I’m sure she will keep getting better.

    I’m still waiting on Mary Elizabeth Winstead to break through.

    No one is talking about her performance at all. She couldn’t even get in at the Spirit awards. If she makes it big, people may talk about this performance, but there is no buzz whatsoever.

    Kirsten Dunst, but that would be more of a comeback, she’s got great projects coming up and with great ensembles and awesome under the radar reviews from Fargo, Midnight Special, Hidden Figures, not to mention everyone remembers her huge Melancholia snub.

    And I can totally see Mary Elizabeth Winstead—that would be so refreshing. Who else? I’m betting we’re going to see a lot more of Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Oh man… Black Mirror and literally everything else. She’s on her way.

    Yes! What she has to do?!

    This year she excelled again in both film and TV with 10 Cloverfield Lane and BrainDead. I get why she was shut out for the first but seriously it’s annoying how overlooked she was for the second. Great comedic performance in a great comedy series. Maybe Fargo will do next year.

    And I’m still a bit bitter on the apathy for her Smashed performance some years ago. It should’ve go further than an Independent Spirit nod.

    I remember she had some experts predicting her at first for a nomination and then nothing happened with critics groups or major awards and it didn’t make sense so they left her off.
