Oscar Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role

The competition: Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter), Ariana DeBose (West Side Story), Judi Dench (Belfast), Kirsten Dunst (The Power of the Dog), Aunjanue Ellis (King Richard)

Previous winners: Yuh-Jung Youn, Laura Dern, Regina King, Allison Janney, Viola Davis, Alicia Vikander, Patricia Arquette
My winner: Coming soon!
The facts: The only woman in this race who has been nominated before. The 87-year-old actress, who is just a few months younger than the oldest-ever nominee in this category, Gloria Stuart for “Titanic,” won in 1998 for “Shakespeare in Love,” and received additional nominations for “Mrs. Brown,” “Chocolat,” “Iris,” “Mrs. Henderson Presents,” “Notes on a Scandal,” and “Philomena.” Buckley’s film is the only one not up for Best Picture. DeBose has won most of the precursors this year, and the same role won Rita Moreno this prize exactly sixty years ago.
Who should win: DeBose
Who will win: Dunst had heat for a while, but DeBose is going to win this.
