SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role

The competition
: Amy Adams’ supportive girlfriend (The Fighter), Helena Bonham Carter’s royal wife (The King’s Speech), Mila Kunis’ dancer (Black Swan), Melissa Leo’s manager mother (The Fighter), and Hailee Steinfeld’s mature fourteen-year-old (True Grit).

For your information: Adams was previously nominated in this category for her performances in “Doubt” and “Junebug.” Both Carter and Leo have contended in the lead category, for “The Wings of the Dove” and “Frozen River,” respectively. This is the first nomination for both Kunis and Steinfeld. Adams, Carter, and Leo are also nominated as a member of their ensemble casts. Everyone in this category but Kunis earned an Oscar nomination this year. Eight out of the past fourteen years, the winner of this category has not gone on to win the Oscar. In SAG history in this category, a performer without a Globe nod has only ever rallied to pull off a SAG win once, and that was Ruby Dee for “American Gangster.”

Who should win: Adams, Carter, or Leo

Who will win: Looks like Leo.
