Who will win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress: Allison Janney or Laurie Metcalf?

Allison Janney and Laurie Metcalf played complex mothers in two of the most acclaimed movies last year, and they're both nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 2018 Oscars. Janney is revered as the frontrunner for her role as Tonya Harding's abusive mother in "I, Tonya." But Metcalf is considered Janney's fiercest competition for playing a tough mother who has a complicated relationship with her daughter in "Lady Bird." Who should win on Sunday, March 4? 🎥🏆

Time Out London's Ellie Walker-Arnott writes Janney is long overdue for Oscar buzz, upon speaking with the acclaimed actress in an interview. She's regarded as the frontrunner. Janney says: 

‘It's my first time being in that conversation and I didn't necessarily think that was ever going to happen for me. It’s pretty overwhelming and exciting.’

The Ringer's Lindsay Zoladz writes Metcalf should be triumphant:

If it comes down to Metcalf and Janney, the latter’s does seem like a more “traditional” supporting performance. The only possible case you could make against Metcalf is that she’s central enough to the movie to be considered, alongside Saoirse Ronan, as another lead. But it’s too late for that case to be made: Laurie Metcalf is nominated for best supporting actress, and she should win. Allison Janney is a national treasure. I hope someday someone writes her an even better movie role than LaVona, and I hope she wins an Oscar for it. But there is nothing that Janney’s performance is attempting to say—about the sacrifices of motherhood, about the intergenerational effort that makes female success possible, and about the sometimes razor-fine line between cruelty and love—that Metcalf’s doesn’t say with more nuance, grace, and, above all, humanity.
