Best Supporting Actress

My top choices in the order I would place them on my Academy ballot if I were allowed to vote:


SEEMA BISWAS, Water


SHAREEKA EPPS, Half Nelson


CARMEN MAURA, Volver


DIANA RIGG, The Painted Veil


HELEN McCRORY, The Queen


Runners-up in alphabetical order:
Adriana Barraza (Babel)
Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada)
Marylouise Burke (A Prairie Home Companion)
Lola Dueñas (Volver)
Mona Hammond (Manderlay)
Jeanne Moreau (Le Temps Qui Reste [A Time to Leave])
Blanca Portillo (Volver)
Maribel Verdú (El Laberinto del Fauno [Pan's Labyrinth])

And apologies to Luminita Gheorghiu because Netflix refuses to send me The Death of Mr. Lazarescu no matter how many times I put it at the top of my queue.
