I feel as though it could have been more open this year but Janney has been leading the whole pack. But when you look closer at the different roles it really could have gone to any of the nominees for such strong performances in very good films.

Let’s have one last look at the actresses who have been nominated in a supporting role . . .

I do always like that we get a more British feel to this one, and yes Paddington 2 and Hugh Grant has a lot of love! Which personally I am very happy about! I will do my predictions closer to the time and when we actually have all of the films out in the UK!

NEW HOST – Joanna Lumley will be hosting this year after Stephen Fry announced a few days ago that he was stepping down!
