Allison Janney seems to have this category down for I, Tonya, who has the four key awards down already. Laurie Metcalf was successful in some of the earlier critical categories, but it’ll be an uphill battle for her to get the win.
- Allison Janney, I, Tonya
- Laurie Metcalf, Lady Bird
- Mary J Blige, Mudbound
- Octavia Spencer, The Shape of Water
- Lesley Manville, Phantom Thread
