Oscar 2024: The Five actresses nominated for best supporting roles

Updated: 7 days ago

The panorama of actresses nominated for the Oscars as supporting roles this year is a little more varied and inclusive than usual, even if after the 2023 en plein there is no actress of Asian origin. Alongside a veteran like Jodie Foster, let's see who the new performers are who will compete for the honor of going on stage at the Dolby Theater on March 10th to collect the coveted recognition.                                                 

Here are the 5 candidates in the best supporting actress category:

Emily Blunt for Oppenheimer

Danielle Brooks for The Color Purple

America Ferrera for Barbie

Jodie Foster for Nyad

Da'Vine Joy Randolph for The Holdovers

British actress Emily Blunt, an American by adoption after her marriage to John Krasinski, obtained her first Oscar nomination for the role of the protagonist's wife in Oppenheimer. You already have a Golden Globe under your belt in 2007 for the Gideon's Daughter series and numerous nominations for various awards, but perhaps you didn't even expect this recognition.

Whether you liked the musical The Color Purple or not, it must be recognized that there are some very remarkable performances. One of the best is that of Danielle Brooks in the role of Sofia, a strong and exuberant woman who demands respect from men but ends up becoming a victim of prevailing racism. Singer, actress of Orange is the New Black, Danielle Brooks is truly convincing and full of nuances in the part

In Greta Gerwig's film America Ferrera plays Gloria, the woman who gives the doll the complexes that lead her to come to the real world but who then helps her to "free herself" and above all the one who pronounces the famous and controversial "feminist" speech

Released directly on Netflix but seen very little is Nyad, the biographical film about swimming sports, for which veteran Jodie Foster is once again nominated for an Oscar. Despite the low-profile project, the protagonist Annette Bening is also a candidate, in what seems like a recognition of two much-loved actresses.

Da'Vine Joy Randolph, the cook who lost a son in war in Alexander Payne's highly acclaimed The Holdovers. She arrives at the Oscar on the strength of four prestigious awards already won for her role: Golden Globe, Critics' Choice Awards, BAFTA and Screen Actors' Guild Award.
