We almost had an all newbie list this year but for the return of Octavia Spencer (a consecutive nomination and now tied with Viola Davis as the most nominated black actress ever). That nearly all newbie is listed is fascinating considering the age range is skewing older than usual in this particular category with Mary J Blige the youngest at 46 and Laurie Metcalf the oldest at 62.

Mary J Blige
46 yrs old | 5 films |1st nomination!

Role: The mother of a farmhand leaves her own children to work for her landlady

WHO SHOULD WIN? Vote Every Day!

Who was left out?
BothHong Chau(Downsizing) andHolly Hunter(The Big Sick) did very well in the precursors but lost out at the last moment.Tiffany Haddish(女孩Trip) also had her cheering section while BAFTA's embrace ofKristin Scott Thomas(Darkest Hour) and the movie's surprisingly hefty Oscar nomination tally suggests she probably wasn't very far off either. Very very tight race this year. So tight that people somehow were able to ignore the grand return ofMichelle Pfeiffer(Mother!) not to mention the terrific women ofGet OutCatherine KeenerandBetty Gabriel... among many others.

Will win/Should win:Allison Janneylooks like a steamroller though we think Oscar should take this opportunity to finishLaurie Metcalf's Triple Crown since she already has an Emmy and a Tony.
