I am so screwed in this category.
I haven’t seen Mary J. Blige or Lesley Manville’s movies.
If you read my best movie breakdown you know that I think Laurie Metcalf’s gloomy one note role in Lady Bird is not Oscar worthy.
Well the same goes for Allison Janney in I, Tonya. Does she do a super job playing the
meanest mother in the world without any redeeming qualities of any kind? Sure.
Would I give her an Oscar? Hell no.
That leaves Octavia Spencer, who is always good and I think is one of our best actresses,
in The Shape of Water where she plays another supporting role well.
So I would give it to her. And she has no chance.
The mean mothers will fight it out.
