SAG Predictions: Best Actress in a Leading Role

Last year’s nominees: Cate Blanchett (Carol), Brie Larson (Room), Helen Mirren (The Woman in Gold), Saoirse Ronan (Brooklyn), and Sarah Silverman (I Smile Back)

The rundown: Last year, this category gave us two shockers that weren’t Globe-nominated and didn’t go on to be Oscar contenders either, and I’m curious if that will happen again this year. The frontrunners are Natalie Portman (Jackie), Emma Stone (La La Land), and Annette Bening (20th Century Women), with Ruth Negga (Loving) very likely. Who could earn the fifth slot? It might be Amy Adams (Arrival), Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) or Jessica Chastain (Miss Sloane), but I think it will be the other Globe nominee I didn’t predict, Isabelle Huppert (Elle).

Current predictions: Bening, Huppert, Negga, Portman, Stone
