SAG Predictions: Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role

Last year’s nominees: Amy Adams (Vice), Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place), Margot Robbie (Mary, Queen of Scots), Emma Stone (The Favourite), Rachel Weisz (The Favourite)

I’m making predictions for SAG, which will announce its picks next Wednesday, ahead of the Golden Globe nominations being unveiled on Monday, though I may revise them again on Tuesday if there are some big surprises. The two frontrunners here are Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers) and Laura Dern (Marriage Story). A nominee last year, Margot Robbie (Bombshell) should be back, though she could cancel herself out if she also gets votes for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Florence Pugh (Little Women) seems to be building steam lately, and could displace some earlier contenders like Zhao Shuzhen (The Farewell) or Annette Bening (The Report). Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit) might end up as a double nominee, while Thomasin McKenzie (Jojo Rabbit) and Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Dolemite Is My Name) could benefit from overall enthusiasm for their films. Even if she doesn’t get an Oscar nomination, this is a place that Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey) can probably score.

Current predictions:
Laura Dern (Marriage Story)
Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit)
Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers)
Margot Robbie (Bombshell)
Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey)
