I have spent months trying to get my friends and family to understand how stressful it’s been to watch Laurie Metcalf and Allison Janney compete against each other during Awards Season. I have loved (and imitated) both of these exceptional artists for decades, and it was about three seconds after each film’s premiere that their performances became Oscar contenders for Best Actress in a Supporting Role  (Allison Janney in I, Tonya, and Laurie Metcalf in Lady Bird).

Bounce with me for a few moments, and then please help me understand how I can cast an emotional vote for one beloved over the other.

Good luck, Allison! Good luck, Laurie!
