Oscars Predictions 2018: Best Supporting Actress

Last year we had three women of colour nominated for this award. This year we have two. This is what representation feels like! What a time to be alive. Here are our predictions for best supporting actress at this year’s Academy Awards.




Allison Janney – I, Tonya

Another excellent actress, Allison Janney has been so widely acknowledged for her TV work you almost forget that she doesn’t have an Oscar yet, and this role, was truly one of her greatest and deserves all the awards.



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

A very powerful performance and she should take home the statue.



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

If you didn’t absolutely despise Allison Janney’s character in every single scene she was in, then you definitely weren’t paying attention. And if you weren’t paying attention then you missed one of the best performances of the past year. Definitely deserves this award for a transformation, both physical and mental. She must have hated herself just as much as we did. Brilliant acting.



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

Holy shit, whether accurately portrayed or not, Allison Janney plays Tonya’s hateful, pill addicted, alcoholic mother to such an extent it makes Tonya’s eventual fall from grace all the more believable. It gives Margot Robbie a real presence to feed off. This is a shoe in for the win. I’m pretty sure Allison Janney’s mom routine gave most of us nightmares.


Allison Janney – I, Tonya

Allison Janney plays the absolute worst mother in the world and is shockingly believable. I love her in this role, especially with all the aging make up on.



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

I have just seen the trailer of I, Tonya and I could see by the colossal bitch that she was portraying that she will take home a statue.

Exactly what Mat said.


Octavia Spencer – The Shape of Water

Octavia Spencer should be winning all the Oscars, every year, all day, errday.



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

It a tough call, but I literally pulled this from a hat.

Compared to the best supporting actor category, this one is a lot closer with stunning performances from Mary J. Blige, Lesley Manville, Laurie Metcalf and Octavia Spencer. All of them brought something special to their respective roles, but for me, Janney transformed into that character and owned every scene despite not having that much screen time at all.



Laurie Metcalf – Lady Bird

The obvious choice here seems to Allison Janney for I, Tonya but I’m going with a wildcard pick and choosing a different mother, Laurie Metcalf in coming of age drama Lady Bird.




Allison Janney – I, Tonya

Another actress I struggle to take seriously especially when she’s on TV, but hey, she’s funny. However, her role in I, Tonya is scary. I could never imagine a human living like how she portrayed. It’s performances that scare me where I feel they deserve the award. What? I appreciate being scared in a good way. It moves me!



Allison Janney – I, Tonya

One of the greatest performances everrrr!! Pure organic art from the this actress. And i love a crazy, angry bitch in a film – adds so much entertainment value.
