Since Viola Davis’ triumph as Best Supporting Actress winner in 2017, successive winners of Best Supporting Actress also have recently won Emmys.
Could an actress repeat this trend next year? And if so, who (those listed are those who have recently won Emmys and have films that are possible Oscar contenders)?

Can’t vote. ¯_(ツ)_/¯March 5, 2020 at 11:43 am #1203372255
I don’t expect any of them to win, but if one of them does, my guess is Comer.
And please people. Stop trying to make Nicole Kidman happen for The Prom. It feels like people try to make her happen for some unlikely project every year. Her vehicle won’t make a dent anywhere besides the Globes, and her role isn’t even very good.March 5, 2020 at 11:52 am #1203372271
Most likely Comer from this list. Though it’s not impossible that she’s actually Lead for TLD – from the description it sounds like the three main roles are pretty evenly weighted.March 5, 2020 at 11:57 am #1203372276
Of those mentioned, Melissa McCarthy probably has the best chance. Of those not mentioned, I’d say Laura Linney, Merritt Wever and Julia Louis-Dreyfus all have a good shot.March 5, 2020 at 12:01 pm #1203372280
Voted for Thandie Newton. She was probably pretty close for “Crash,” and “Westworld” has reminded the public how brilliant she can be in the right role.March 5, 2020 at 12:16 pm #1203372290
Of those mentioned, Melissa McCarthy probably has the best chance. Of those not mentioned, I’d say Laura Linney, Merritt Wever and Julia Louis-Dreyfus all have a good shot.
Agreed, I chose McCarthy. She proved she can earn nominations in both Lead and Supporting, for dramatic and comedic, and both times her movie was not a BP nominee. If she has a good role I can really see it happening.
And of those not mentioned, I also agree with you – Wever came to mind first for me. She’s an industry favorite with her 2 upset Emmy wins, had a scene-stealing turn in Marriage Story, and will likely be double Emmy-nominated this year for Unbelievable and Run.March 5, 2020 at 1:39 pm #1203372356
Melissa McCarthy is probably the closet of those above to a win. She’s one of the last proven marquee capital M Movie star, has managed to get nominated pure the smallest indie drama and a pure studio comedy that weren’t in BP contention.
One of those in the poll trying for a win this year. Probably Moss.March 5, 2020 at 2:37 pm #1203372392
I would like to see Comer win OscarMarch 5, 2020 at 2:57 pm #1203372404
Glenn Close, you just forgot thatMarch 5, 2020 at 4:53 pm #1203372488
People who originate from TV I have trouble envisioning as winners. I know it happens historically (Sally Field, Marisa Tomei, Regina King) but I think most newcomers to film will get the Laurie Metcalf treatment.March 6, 2020 at 8:31 am #1203373235
not sure if she counts as a “recent” emmy winner but I think laura linney is due a win sooner or laterMarch 6, 2020 at 8:56 am #1203373265
I’d say Kidman, but not for The Prom

Sarah Paulson and Elisabeth Moss will perform complete sweeps before the end of the decade, mark my words. It’s just a question of how soon.
The industry also really seems to like Merritt Wever, seeing as how she beat the odds at the Emmys twice over more acclaimed performances and bigger names, so she seems likely.
I agree about Laura Linney and Melissa McCarthy as well. They’re very well-liked, and they deliver the goods every single time.
