2022 OSCARS PREDICTIONS:
BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS

UPDATED: Oct 14, 2021

AWARDS PREDICTION COMMENTARY : Academy Award winner Judi Dench (“Shakespeare in Love”), gets the final moment of “Belfast” to transform the audience into a puddle of tears. Dench has an impressive seven Oscar nominations and one more isn’t out of the question. Caitriona Balfe , if campaigned in supporting, could be a runaway, especially if the film is winning best picture.

Gaby Hoffman, who got her start as a child actor (we’ll always adore her role in “Sleepless in Seattle”), holds “C’mon C’mon” firmly together and supporting actress could be an appropriate place to embrace her work, which essentially reinvents one of Hollywood’s most mundane roles: “woman on phone.”

It would be silly to count out someone as beloved as Cate Blanchett, who is said to go either way on the lead or supporting front, along with her co-star Rooney Mara. The always underrated Toni Collette will undoubtedly campaign this side of the acting house but it remains to be seen how people will respond.

The four actors of “Mass” could all be competitive in the densely packed awards season, even possible for double-acting nods for Ann Dowd and Martha Plimpton. which could follow in the footsteps of “The Favourite” (Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz), “The Fighter” (Amy Adams and winner Melissa Leo) and “Doubt” (Adams and Viola Davis).

Emmy-nominated Aunjanue Ellis, who plays Venus and Serena Williams’ mother Brandi in “King Richard,” could factor heavily into the supporting actress category. Utterly worthy to join her is Saniyya Sidney’s as the young Venus, echoing that the future of Black cinema and its inclusion of Black women looks bright, and I can’t wait to see what she does next.

Oscar nominations voting begins on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022, and will end on Tuesday, Feb. 1, 2022. The official Academy Awards nominations will be announced on Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022, with the ceremony taking place on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
