Here are the nominees for Best Actress in a Leading Role:

Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water

Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Margot Robbie – I, Tonya

Saorise Ronan – Lady Bird

Meryl Streep – The Post

Who I’m Cheering For: I don’t know if anyone here completely ‘doesn’t belong’ this year.  I’ll go with Robbie just for proving (again) she can do more than be the sexpot.

Who Should Win: Let’s not underestimate being a leading character who’s a mute means.  I’d say Sally Hawkins here.

Who Will Win: McDormand.  The people love her and she only seems to do films now once every few years.
