Winning across the board raves. Can’t imagine her missing this yearThe performance everyone was talking about out of Sundance. Already a previous nominee, Negga could find herself with the statue in this period pieceThe Emmys love her, and she just missed an Oscar nomination for Compliance. She always delivers the goods, but will Plimpton or the men overshadow her?Already with two nominations and just missing a third, Hawkins could be the premiere supporting player or tag along like she did with Blue JasmineAlready an Oscar winner, this role seems uniquely suited for her and it would be a great opportunity to award an actress they haven’t had the chance to award since

The role won Rita Moreno an Oscar in the original, but is DeBose doing a Moreno impression or does she make one of her own?Besides Smith, she is getting most of the attention from the film. Expect a lot of good will from her peersComedic actresses turning dramatic has worked before and if Mass hits big, Plimpton could easily be swept up in the momentumThe film was not the hit everyone was hoping, but the goodwill for her performance could keep her around long enoughIf the film’s reception is strong, and with Dornan also in the mix, maybe Johnson can make waves

She’s been singled out among the cast, and the film could take her along if it becomes a big awards playerThe film has to hit big, but Dench is beloved by the Academy and could even usurp her co-starsIt is criminal for Collette to have only nomination and the buzz around her performance is buildingIt’s been almost 20 years since her only nomination, but she hasn’t really been close since. The Oscars may be itching to reward herShe is winning the best-in-show raves to go along with the acclaim for the film, and if it is the monster hit it might be, Ferguson could be pulled along
