Each week, the Oscars Central team will bring you updated predictions! The team will be basing predictions on forecasters, other nominations/wins, campaigns and previous Oscar season patterns. Below, you’ll find our Top 10 predictions for Supporting Actress.

While there are some performances we are waiting to hear if they’re officially Lead or Supporting (marked with an asterisk), for the time we’ll include those where we currently think the performances will be placed.
