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.
