Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) remains atop the Supporting Actor chart for another month with the drug addiction family drama Beautiful Boy and again with newly minted Supporting Actor Oscar winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) on his heels at #2 with Dick Cheney biopic Backseat starring as then-president George W. Bush.

After that there is a lot of movement and two new additions to the top 10.

Everything about A Star Is Born keeps getting stronger and Sam Elliott is no different. The never-nominated veteran moves up two spots to #6, inching closer to a possible nomination after more than 50 years in the business.

Two more performances from never-nominated actors are also moving up: Richard E. Grant in Can You Ever Forgive Me? moves up one to #3 and Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman) lands in the top 5 for the first time this season.

This drops down Stephan James (If Beale Street Could Talk) to #5 but holding on, and Oscar nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) in Widows.

Joining the top 10 for the first time this season are two previous winners in this category: J.K. Simmons, who won for Whiplash, finds a place with The Front Runner and Moonlight‘s Mahershala Ali could find himself with a second nomination, this time for the period piece Green Book.

Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther) and Kyle Chandler (First Man) fall down to the Next Up section this month.
