Here is MaverickFilm.Co’s predictions for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role in our first article breaking down this years Oscar hopefuls into who should win and who will win.
BEST ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE
Nominees: Viola Davis in Fences, Michelle Williams in Manchester by the Sea, Naomie Harris in Moonlight, Octavia Spencer in Hidden Figures and Nicole Kidman in Lion.
Who Should Win:
For me, there are two obvious front runners here – Viola Davis and Naomie Harris. Nicole Quite honestly I’m biased when it comes to Williams’ performance solely because I refuse to watch Manchester by the Sea due to my intense hatred of Casey Affleck. Kidman’s performance just seemed a little bit too ordinary to win, despite how touching it was and whilst I do love Octavia Spencer, her performance pales in comparison to the ex-co-star Davis. Davis and Harris both give versatile and heart-wrenching performances and I would happy to see either win.
Who Will Win:
So far, Viola Davis has managed a clean sweep of awards earning a Golden Globe, a SAG award and a BAFTA, and if I was a betting woman I’d put all my money on her.
