2020 Oscar Predictions: Best Supporting Actress

Oscar season is officially underway. The 2020 Oscars will cap off an abbreviated awards season — this year’s telecast is scheduled for Feb. 9, weeks earlier than usual — and ET will keep you up to date with our latest predictions the entire time. Up until Jan. 13, when the Academy officially announces their nominations, keep checking back to this post to see who is in the running for Best Supporting Actress. 

This year’s Best Supporting Actress race didn’t officially begin until Jennifer Lopez twirled around that stripper pole to “Criminal.” Lopez, whose past acting accolades include a Golden Globe nomination for Selena, is not only up for her first Oscar nomination — but at the time of publishing, looks to be leading the pack. She will face tough competition from previous nominees like Laura Dern and Margot Robbie, though, not to mention any number of Little Women. (NEVER count out Meryl Streep.)

THE PREDICTIONS

The Top 5:

Laura Dern, Marriage Story
Jennifer Lopez, Hustlers
Florence Pugh, Little Women
Margot Robbie, Bombshell
Shuzhen Zhao, The Farewell

The Challengers:

Kathy Bates, Richard Jewell
Annette Bening, The Report
Scarlett Johansson, Jojo Rabbit
Nicole Kidman, Bombshell
Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dolemite Is My Name
Margot Robbie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey
Meryl Streep, Little Women
