Golden Globe Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture

The competition: Viola Davis’ loyal wife (Fences), Naomie Harris’ troubled mother (Moonlight), Nicole Kidman’s devoted mother (Lion), Octavia Spencer’s talented supervisor (Hidden Figures), and Michelle Williams’ devastated ex-wife (Manchester by the Sea).

For your information: This is Kidman’s eleventh nomination, and she has won three times before, most recently in 2002 for “The Hours.” This is Williams’ fourth nomination, and she won in 2011 for “My Week with Marilyn.” Spencer won in 2011 for “The Help.” This is Davis’ fifth overall nomination, representing both film and TV work. This is the first nomination for Harris. “Lion,” “Manchester by the Sea,” and “Moonlight” are all nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama.

Who should win? These are all solid performances – I think Williams is my favorite.

Who will win? It seems that Davis is ahead of the pack at this point.
