SAG Nominees: Best Actress in a Supporting Role

My predictions: 3/5, picking Banks and Fonda over McAdams and Mirren
Who’s missing: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jane Fonda, Elizabeth Banks, Kristen Stewart

This category played out a bit as expected, and will surely look very different when the Golden Globe nominations are announced tomorrow since Rooney Mara (Carol) and Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) will be considered leads. Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs) was another sure thing, and a very deserving one at that. Helen Mirren (Trumbo) ended up being a double nominee for a movie that scored an unexpected three nominations. And then there’s Rachel McAdams (Spotlight), an odd choice to represent her film as the only individually-nominated performer since she was not the best in show. At least this is somewhat interesting, and this category is up for grabs a bit.

Who could win? I think Mara, but it might be Vikander too.
