    I always thought of Michael Shannon as leading than supporting. He had lots of screen time in Shape of Water.

    Brooklynn Kimberly Prince & Bria Vinaite > Willem Dafoe

    Garret Hedlund and Jason Mitchell > Mary J Blige (When will Hollywood finally realize how much star power and charisma Garret Hedlund possesses?!?)

    Vicky Krieps > Lesley Manville

    Michael Stuhlbarg > Octavia Spencer. I didn’t care for Shannon in this, and I loved Jenkins.

    Vicky Krieps > Daniel Day-Lewis, but just barely.

    Catherine Keener > Daniel Kaluuya

    The entire cast of Mudbound > Mary J. Blige, she is a very noticeable weak link in an otherwise strong cast.

    Michelle Williams > Christopher Plummer Don’t really care for either of these performances though.

    Jason Mitchell was the real star of Mudbound. He should have been heavily in the conversation for a slot in Supporting Actor. Blige did a fine job but her role wasn’t anywhere near as profoundly layered as Mitchell’s.

    I’m not sure I’d swap out Leslie Manville (who was excellent), but Harriet Sansom Harris gave a scene-stealing 5 minute performance in “Phantom Thread.” Harris obviously knows how to chew the scenery (see her Tony winning/broadway performances, and TV work), but she completely stole her scenes from Daniel Day-Lewis in an utterly heartbreaking cameo.

    I thought I was the only one who thought this!

    I second everyone in Mudbound > Blige.

    I’m surprised that people liked Bria Vinaite in The Florida Project. She’s one of the main reasons why I could barely finish the movie. She felt like a youtuber paying a friend to film her. There was no depth in her portrayal at all. All I saw was her being an nuissance to everyone else, practically like an extra with a lot of screentime.

    I agree with a lot of the comments about Mudbound and Get Out.

    As for things that haven’t been mentioned yet… I’m not sure that I would say Lucas Hedges was better than Metcalf or Ronan in Lady Bird, but I will say that he was better than all 5 of the actual Supporting Actor nominees.

    Garrett Hedlund over Mary J. Blige is the most obvious one.

    Bob Odenkirk was better than Meryl Streep

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor
