The Best Supporting Actress award may be the least talked about but one of the most up-in-the-air categories in the 2016 Oscar race.

Oscar-winner Vikander is on a bit of a hot streak, starring in two Oscar-nominated films in 2015: the aforementioned "The Danish Girl" and critical sci-fi darling "Ex Machina" (if you haven't seen the latter, do yourself a favor and watch it.
