Probably just missed for First Man. Getting the best-in-show reviews in the ensembleAlways great, but how much of an actual role is it? Could get lost in the rest of the ensembleStranger Things does a lot for ones profile. An unsympathetic role, but one that could still landCareer upswing in a male-dominated critical hit could do a lot of good. Getting lots of praiseNothing but upward momentum for her. Memorable role in a box office hit. Don’t be surprised

Will be fighting with everyone else in the ensemble for attention. Hot off The Lost Daughter surprise nodShe is so prevalent and beloved on TV, it’s a wonder she hasn’t been nominated before. Positive reviews could go a long wayNever bad, but always above her material. Could easily see her make the five if the film plays wellI’m cooler on the film than most people, but everyone seems to be on board with Gerwig being greatIf Deadwyler makes a splash, it would make sense she would pull this legend along with her

Keeps putting in quality work after her near-miss for Downsizing. Hopefully the role is big enoughIt’s a crowded field in the Babylon supporting women, but Anna May Wong is a great roleTurning into a movie star helps, but she has won raves from everyone. Though, it didn’t translate to a nod for de Armas in 2019EEAAO could play really well with the Academy and Hsu has her fair share of championsThe film got absolutely skewered in the festival circuit, but the public could really attach to Dern (or alternatively Kirby)
