This Week's Smackdown Panel

Thank you for all the votes for this weeks Supporting Actress Smackdown for the 91st Oscars - so many ballots for us to sift through with opinions so varied which is just how it should be and how we like it (亚博主页if you forgot,we'll accept them today as well but they're due by midnight!) Due to behind the scenes technical stuff we'll be posting the Smackdown Monday night,but it's time to meet the panel.We cheekily asked them for their pics in the three chopping-block craft categories butthen the Academy reversed course.We're sharing their votes anyway,because shouldn't you always know who people are rooting for in cinematography,editing,and makeup?We think so!

Please welcome two first time panelists
