SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role

The competition: Berenice Bejo’s bubbly actress (The Artist), Jessica Chastain’s loony housewife (The Help), Melissa McCarthy’s energetic bridesmaid (Bridesmaids), Janet McTeer’s closeted painter (Albert Nobbs), and Octavia Spencer’s sarcastic maid (The Help).

For your information: McTeer was nominated in 1999 for “Tumbleweeds,” and this is the first nomination for the other four. All five actresses are nominated for their work in the ensembles of their films as well. This category has had two nominees from one film four times in the past five years, and only one did one of them win, and that was last year, when Melissa Leo triumphed for “The Fighter.”

Who should win: Bejo or Chastain, but this is a great list!

Who will win: Probably Spencer, but McCarthy is an unpredictable force!
