The Oscar Quest: Best Best Supporting Actress Choices

The thing about Best Supporting Actress choices — a lot of times what makes a decision good, or even great, isn’t necessarily just the performance. Sometimes it’s about what that performance represents.

Honestly, I’m not sure if there really are great choices in this category. But I feel like these ones I have on here are great for all different reasons, and, aside from where I ranked them (which is simply a matter of personal preference), these all belong here.

Don’t worry, it’ll get better when we get to the bigger categories. This is the last one for Supporting Actress.
