    I count 10 so far (with one not sure of category placement):

    Annette Bening, All My Sons (could be nominated for Featured Actress)
    Laura Donnelly, The Ferryman
    Glenda Jackson, King Lear
    Cherry Jones, The Lifespan of a Fact
    Celia Keenan-Bolger, To Kill a Mockingbird
    Tatiana Maslany, Network
    Elaine May, The Waverly Gallery
    Janet McTeer, Bernhardt/Hamlet
    Laurie Metcalf, Hillary and Clinton
    Keri Russell, Burn This
    Kerry Washington, American Son

    My early prediction is Donnelly, Jackson, May, McTeer and Metcalf.

    There were only 4 nominees this past year, hoping for 5 next year.

    The reason why there were only four nominees this past year is because there were only eight eligible candidates. With at least nine right now, there should be five nominees next year.

    Don’t forget Keri Russell for Burn This! This past year, it wasn’t until 2 of the 3 Tall Women went featured that it was clear that there would be only 4 nominees in the category, so, with a lot of placements to be worked out, this still could end up being a smaller field.

    ^Is Burn This definitely getting revived this season? I didn’t see it on any of the lists I was perusing this morning – is there a definite production happening before the end of April 2019?

    The August announcement of Russell’s casting said that performances would begin in March, so that’s what I figure to still be the case:

    I actually think Tatiana Maslany has a better chance for a nomination than Janet McTeer, mainly because Bernhardt/Hamlet will have closed by the time Network opens, and if Network is a critical success, I can’t see how she’d miss out on a nomination.

    Of the candidates that have been seen so far, here’s how I’d rank them in terms of likelihood:

    1. Elaine May
    2. Laura Donnelly
    3. Celia Keenan-Bolger*
    4. Kerry Washington
    5. Janet McTeer
    6. Cherry Jones

    *Early reports for To Kill a Mockingbird have been very good.

    Jackson repeats.

    I have read All My Sons and seen a production and I am always confused when I see actresses get LEAD nominations for that particular role, which is so clearly a featured/supporting role. I know that Julie Walters got a nomination (can’t remember if she won for it?) for an Olivier award in the Best Actress category – is it possible Annette Bening would be nominated in Featured Actress? The ruling committee could decide to place her there…

    Julie Walters did win the Olivier in 2001 for her performance as Kate Keller in All My Sons. I think if Annette Bening is eligible as a Lead Actress, it would make sense as a way to separate her from the other female cast members. Plus, if her character isn’t the female lead of All My Sons, who is?

    ^there is no female lead in All My Sons. It is definitely a featured/supporting role. My hope is that the ruling committee places Bening in the Featured Actress category.
