    Thanks for these. I think Mary J Blige deserves a look at +3100 for best supporting actress. Not a lot of ways oscar voters can vote for the downtrodden outside of Get Out (they avoid horror films, but love period movies about race in states they've never visited) I feel like the odds-on favorite here has won BAFTA, SAG, and the Spirit (independent film) awards but the Academy will like her less than any of those voting groups and will like Blige more. Not saying she's favored but at +3100 and a crowded field I like it.

    Richard Jenkins +1600. Supporting actor
    Rockwell may be odds on favorite but may lose some votes to Harrelson from same movie. Worth a look. May get votes for body of work.

    I'm shocked by the prices on the Live Action and Animated Shorts. Dekalb Elementary and Dear Basketball are favored. I played The Silent Girl +315 and Garden Party +1150.
