OSCAR PREDICTIONS: Best Actress

Updated: January 13, 2018

AND THE PREDICTED NOMINEES ARE

1

Frances McDormand
“Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

PROS:
Previous winner of "Fargo." Multiple nominee and the reviews have been outstanding thus far.
CONS:
Will it manage to standout among seemingly "bigger" films of the fall?

2

Margot Robbie
“I, Tonya” (NEON)

PROS:
She's been a hot commodity since her breakout turn in "The Wolf of Wall Street" and also has "Goodbye Christopher Robin" later this year which could help.
CONS:
Can NEON figure out the Oscar game quickly?

3

Sally Hawkins
“The Shape of Water” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

PROS:
One-time nominee for "Blue Jasmine." She had an aura of Holly Hunter in "The Piano" in the trailer.
CONS:
Mute performances can be tough for an actor to get noticed, especially in a "science-fiction-ish" drama.

4

Saoirse Ronan
“Lady Bird” (A24)

PROS:
Previous nominee for "Brooklyn" and "Atonement," who received great praise out of Telluride and TIFF. Can she begin her Oscar narrative now?
CONS:
She seems more of Golden Globe nominee than an Oscar one, at least for now. Competitive race.

5

Jessica Chastain
“Molly’s Game” (STX Entertainment)

PROS:
Two-time nominee ("The Help" and "Zero Dark Thirty") who is going to be reciting Aaron Sorkin dialogue. It can't go wrong, right?
CONS:
Of all the contenders of the fall, this seems like one of those "failures" of the season. Will Chastain be able to survive that?

NEXT IN LINE

6

Meryl Streep
“The Post” (20th Century Fox)

PROS:
The Oscar queen taking on another high-caliber role. There are many that want to see her win her fourth before she's done.
CONS:
The SAG miss has many worried.

7

Judi Dench
“Victoria and Abdul” (Focus Features)

PROS:
It'll be rather poetic to have Dench snag her eighth nomination exactly 20 years after playing the same role. The performance also checks all the Oscar boxes.
CONS:
Competitive field ahead of her and where else can the film snag love?

8

Michelle Williams
“All the Money in the World” (Sony Pictures)

PROS:
She looks absolutely stunning in the trailer. With another performance in the upcoming "The Greatest Showman," one could help the other.
CONS:
Is it a future flop? And is she a true lead?

9

Emma Stone
“Battle of the Sexes” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

PROS:
The recently crowned Best Actress winner of "La La Land" is taking on Billie Jean King. The Telluride reviews are rapturously positive, some saying it tops her work in "La La Land."
CONS:
It simply may not live up to the expectations. Lead Actress is competitive again this year it seems.

10

Diane Kruger
“In the Fade” (Magnolia Pictures)

PROS:
The festival reviews have been very kind to her thus far. Nearly made it in for "Inglourious Basterds." Is the official submission for Germany.
CONS:
Will enough voters see the film?

OTHER TOP TIER CONTENDERS

11

Kate Winslet
“Wonder Wheel” (Amazon Studios)

PROS:
Early word is positive for Winslet's work. After Woody Allen nabbed Cate Blanchett a second Oscar, could Winslet join the club?
CONS:
Not all Woody Allen performances lead to gold.

12

Daniela Vega
“A Fantastic Woman” (Sony Pictures Classics)

PROS:
She can make history being the first transgender actress to be nominated and the word for her is very strong.
CONS:
Will the film be seen enough? Lead Actress is very competitive.

13

Vicky Krieps
“Phantom Thread” (Focus Features)

PROS:
Rumored to be the one to watch from the film. Breakout performance?
CONS:
Crowded Best Actress race for a late entry.

14

Brooklynn Prince
“The Florida Project” (A24)

PROS:
A young talent that Oscar may feel compelled to vote for. Think this year's Quvenzhane Wallis?
CONS:
Kids in Lead are such a rarity, and the film has to show strength elsewhere. There's only so many Keisha Castle-Hughes in the history.

15

Jennifer Lawrence
“mother!” (Paramount Pictures)

PROS:
Winner of "Silver Linings Playbook," delivers her finest portrait yet.
CONS:
It's a competitive Lead Actress race this year. The critical divide.

16

Gal Gadot
“Wonder Woman” (Warner Bros.)

PROS:
She's remarkably poised turn as Wonder Woman. She could snag up a few votes.
CONS:
Not in this competitive lead actress race.

17

Annette Bening
“Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” (Sony Pictures Classics)

PROS:
A national treasure that is just aching for her first Oscar despite four nominations to her credit.
CONS:
The film's reviews are solid but not enough to be declared a "Julianne Moore-type" winner of the year.

18

Helen Mirren
“The Leisure Seeker” (Sony Pictures Classics)

PROS:
Every time she has a movie, she's in the hunt for something. Reviews are good.
CONS:
Sutherland seems to be eating up the love for the film.

19

Debra Winger
“The Lovers” (A24)

PROS:
One of those actresses we missed that should have an Oscar and doesn't. Her turn in this first half film was well-regarded.
CONS:
A24 will have to give a proper push for her to make it in this competitive lineup.

20

Cynthia Nixon
“A Quiet Passion” (Music Box Films)

PROS:
Has been making quite a case for herself over the years with performances in "James White" and this early year hit.
CONS:
Lead Actress is very competitive. She'll need a strong kick off like Rachel Weisz ("The Deep Blue Sea") a few years back.

ALSO IN CONTENTION

21

Nicole Kidman
“The Beguiled” (Focus Features)

PROS:
Has had a career resurgence that most actresses would dream of. Also in "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" and she feels prime for another Oscar someday.
CONS:
She is just one part of a terrific cast and the Lead Actress race is VERY competitive.

22

Sally Hawkins
“Maudie” (Sony Pictures Classics)

PROS:
One of the highlights of the first half of the year.
CONS:
Has "The Shape of Water" which is going to eat up a lot of her votes.

23

Salma Hayek
“Beatriz at Dinner” (Roadside Attractions)

PROS:
One of the passionate contenders to come out of the first half, with many citing her still.
CONS:
Film is small.

24

Rachel Weisz
“My Cousin Rachel” (Fox Searchlight Pictures)

PROS:
One of the acclaimed performances to come out of the first half of the year. Previous Oscar-winner ("The Constant Gardener") looking for her second nod.
CONS:
With the movie already out on Blu-Ray/DVD, it's seem to have come and gone. Critics will need to rescue it. Highly competitive race.

25

Rebecca Hall
“Professor Marston & the Wonder Women” (Annapurna Pictures)

PROS:
Has received standout notices. After missing out for "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Christine," her time is coming.
CONS:
Will the film be seen by enough voters?

  • Moritz Schröder

    Here are a few errors with Blake Lively – Maudie & Aaron-Taylor Johnson – First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers !

    • They’ve been fixed. New prediction module with some kinks being worked out over the weekend.

      Thanks for the help.

  • Sentinel666

    My predictions:

    1.Frances McDormand “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri”
    2.Annette Bening “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”
    3.Judi Dench “Victoria and Abdul”
    4.Helen Mirren “The Leisure Seeker”

    7.Debra Winger “The Lovers”
    8.Sally Hawkins “The Shape of Water”
    9.Jennifer Lawrence “mother!”
    10.Saoirse Ronan “Lady Bird”

  • Sentinel666

    What is Elisabeth Moss doing here? I watched “The Square” few hours ago and she was in the film no more than 10-15 minutes …

  • Alec Glass

    It’s always interesting to cross-reference these predictions with the mass aggregation over at Gold Derby. They’re going big over there for Sally Hawkins in TSoW, and I’m rooting for it harrrrd. At first was a bit pissed to see it here at only 8… and then remembered what happened to Amy Adams last year… the scifi acting bias is real indeed, even when the film is actually about the acting. I’m curious to see how the narrative shakes out.

  • Facebook User

    Margot Robbie over Judi Dench in the top 5, really? Someone has a “hard on” here.

    • Judi Dench’s film has received mixed-to-negative reviews. It’s a non-starter, awards-wise. Robbie’s was the surprise hit of TIFF. Any sane person would place her above Dench.

      • Facebook User

        When it comes to Judi Dench and the Academy, I would have to disagree.

        • Patrick Downing

          I looked up Facebook User on Google, Wikipedia, and IMDb. No one by that name.

    • You’re commenting on every single prediction and criticizing films you likely haven’t seen and I have a “hard on”…come on bruh.

      • Facebook User

        I go to many screenings, months in advance, for films that will be released in the future. As I may have my opinion of the films, I do listen and see what the consensus of the critics are after these screenings.

    2.Annette Bening “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”
    3.Saoirse Ronan “Lady Bird”
    4.Judi Dench “Victoria and Abdul”

    8.Margot Robbie “I. Tonya”
    9.Meryl Streep “The Post”
    10.Helen Mirren “The Leisure Seeker”

  • Baggins

    my picks as of right now in alphabetical order

    Judi Dench – Victoria and Abdul
    Margot Robbie – I, Tonya
    Emma Stone – Battle of the Sexes
    Meryl Streep – The Post
    Kate Winslet – Wonder Wheel

  • Lucas Le Moal

    I want Meryl Streep out !!!!!!!! She did her time ! If she’s nominated again, I will shed so much ! I want Jessica Chastain, Sally Hawkins, Frances McDormand, Jennifer Lawrence and Saoirse Ronan !

    • Lamar

      If an actress gives an Oscar worthy performance, they deserve a nomination. Past wins or nominations should not factor into that desicion, especially when thinking objectively.

      • michaeldal65

        She has been over nominated though. She’s never less than great, inarguably, but consider the pointless nods for Music of The Heart, Into the Woods, Julie & Julia, and the ridiculous win for The Iron Lady, a terrible film with a performance more chameleon than award-winning. She was infinitely more interesting in Adaptation, Prada, and her criminally unnominated work in The Hours, Hope Springs, Rendition, and The Manchurian Candidate.

    • “She did her time”

      Is she an ex-con?

  • You have Three Billboards ranked #1 on your Best Picture predictions and Sam Rockwell at #1 in the Best Supporting Actor category, but McDormand ranks only #7 here?

    • Alec Glass

      Yeah, like what??? Clayton, this reminds me an awful lot of when you had Casey, Michelle, and Lonergan at #1 for L. Actor, S. Actress, and O. Screenplay with no best pic nom for Manchester…. you’re categories aren’t adding up here. If they LOVE billboards, or even if it’s just a matter of it being the consensus choice that everyone likes… I mean literally the only CON you have listed for her is that the film is small and may not stand out among bigger ones… but you have it winning best pic sooo…. what is standing in her way exactly that’s giving Kate Winslet and Emma Stone better odds than her..?

    • Emi Grant

      She’s now number 2, happy?

      • No, now I’m unhappy that Stone is ahead of Ronan.

        • Emi Grant

          To be fair, I haven’t watched either performance, so I guess I can’t comment on them.

  • DaKardii

    It’s only been a few days, so anything can happen. But I’m convinced that the fallout from the Weinstein scandal is going to have a major negative effect on any actors or actresses who have received Oscar nominations working for him. For that reason:

    -Meryl Streep stays in the predicted nominees ONLY because she’s in the top 2. Anybody who is not in the top 2 is already at risk of losing their chance if they previously received nominations because of Weinstein.

    -I would move Kate Winslet down to the “Next in Line” category.

    -I would move Judi Dench and Michelle Williams down to the “Other Top Tier Contenders” category.

    -I would move Jennifer Lawrence down to the “Also in Contention” category.

    -I would move Nicole Kidman down to the “Other Possibilities” category.

    -Although she never received a nomination due to Weinstein, the fact that his name is attached to the production company for Wind River likely means that Elizabeth Olsen is off the list completely.

    • Martin Harris

      I believe Meryl and Judi will not be affected by the HW story. These actresses are being applauded for speaking out, not shunned. I’m going with Meryl, Judi, Emma, Frances and Sally for the 5 spots right now.

  • Brooke

    Stone is absolutely OUT. No one will remember that film and Sally Hawkins will take that spot because of the release time.

    And with Wonder Wheel currently at 50%?? I am THISCLOSE to removing Winslet as well.

    • Sentinel666

      Man, I heard that Emma Stone was absolutely great in “Battle of the Sexes”, even better than “La La Land”. One of the strongest contender at this moment.

      Winslet out, definitely.

      • rockfall911

        Winslet, as much as I love her, will probably be out.
        Hawkins will get a nod and I’ll go out on a limb predicting that Saoirse Ronan will definitey be in as well. Stone will probably ride her coattails from last year and will sneak in. But I think this is shaping up to be McDormand’s race to lose. And deservedly so.

        • Sentinel666

          Saoirse and McDormand will be nominated in 99,9%.

      • michaeldal65

        Stone might be a contender but there’s no way she’ll win 2 years in a row.

        • Sentinel666

          She’ll not win, but can be nominated 🙂

          • michaeldal65

            Fair enough but it seems like a such a waste of a slot for someone more worthy. Its the same as Redmayne being nominated for THE DANISH GIRL. He didn’t have a chance and they could’ve let McKellen in for MR. HOLMES or Caine for YOUTH. Always makes for a more interesting race when the contenders are interesting..and worthy.

      • michaeldal65

        Stone might be a contender but there’s no way she’ll win 2 years in a row.

    • Sentinel666

      Winslet out, definitely.

    • michaeldal65

      I think Stone should be left out this time. As well made, if conventional, as the film is, King was a bore and Stone brings virtually nothing to it. Carell walks away with BATTLE.

    • michaeldal65

      I think Stone should be left out this time. As well made, if conventional, as the film is, King was a bore and Stone brings virtually nothing to it. Carell walks away with BATTLE.

  • michaeldal65

    You can remove Kidman, Gadot, Weisz, Theron, and Ridley from the Actress suggestions. Not a chance.

    • Sentinel666

      Agree. I could add Huppert, Hathaway, Moore, Allison Williams, Watson, Olsen, Fonda, Mirren (“The Leissure Seeker” will be realized in 2018) and Lawrence. Not a chance for anyone of them. Brooklyn Prince too, she can be nominated in “supporting actress” more than “leading actress”.

  • michaeldal65

    You can remove Kidman, Gadot, Weisz, Theron, and Ridley from the Actress suggestions. Not a chance.

  • Tee

    Another seemingly top heavy category.

    1. Meryl Streep – The Post
    2. Margot Robbie – I, Tonya
    3. Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
    4. Emma Stone – Battle of the Sexes
    5. Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    6. Kate Winslet – Wonder Wheel
    7. Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    8. Cynthia Nixon – A Quiet Passion
    9. Jennifer Lawrence – mother!
    10. Gal Gadot – Wonder Woman

  • Baggins

    my choices as of right now in alphabetical order

    Annette Bening – Film Stars don’t Die in Liverpool
    Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
    Diane Kruger – In the Fade
    Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri
    Emma Stone – Battle of the Sexes

  • Blonbb469

    No way Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain or Margot Robbie will get nominations. How old are these predictions?

    • Robbie’s film just had a trailer released, the buzz is enormous right now and it’s already critically acclaimed. It makes no sense to criticize someone for predicting her.

  • Demetra

    1. Margot Robbie – I, Tonya
    2. Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
    3. Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    4. Saoirse Ronan- Lady Bird
    5. Emma Stone- Battle of the Sexes

    • Ryan Hynes

      These are my exact predictions. Still confused why the Lady Bird snub. Certainly as of now Ronan feels more definite than Chastain.

  • Tim Bruns

    I’m curious as to why Jessica Chastain isn’t considered a frontrunner. I feel like there’s a chance she’d be snubbed at the Oscars, but if she got in, I’d have a hard time believing she couldn’t win. Granted I haven’t seen the movie yet, but Sorkin scripts tend to get nominations for actors (and how close do you think Winslet, Fassbender or even Eisenberg came to winning?). And this seems like the type of performance that could easily win. And she’s certainly due for that. Thoughts?

    • Sam Hernández

      The difference between Chastain and those you mention is that Fassbender and Winslet were directed by Danny Boyle and Eissenberg was directed by David Fincher. Chastain is being directed by first time director Aaron Sorkin. They can have a great script to work with, but if the direction is not good enough, it can lower the quality of the performance, which I think will be the case.

  • Sam Hernández

    I think Saoirse Ronan has far way more chances of getting nominated than Jessica Chastain, to be honest. And even more chances of winning than Emma Stone. I don’t know why you are not considering her between the main five.

    • rockfall911

      Agreed. Ronan looks like a safe bet. But I think this race will end up being less competitive than we expect. I don’t see how McDormand can be stopped.

  • Iván

    I think Salma hayek should be in the top tier contenders, she has a better chance than nicole, debra, gal and nixon.

  • Tee

    1. Margot Robbie – I, Tonya
    2. Meryl Streep – The Post
    3. Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
    4. Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    5. Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    6. Emma Stone – Battle of the Sexes
    7. Jessica Chastain – Molly’s Game
    8. Kate Winslet – Wonder Wheel
    9. Judi Dench – Victoria and Abdul
    10. Gal Gadot – Wonder Woman

  • Fabio Ruiz

    Gal Gadot, 18th? Really? Gal Gadot shouldn’t even be on this list and never above those marvelous actresses falling behind her in this prediction.

  • Sentinel666

    1.Frances McDormand “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” (Winner)
    2.Sally Hawkins “The Shape of Water”
    3.Meryl Streep “The Post”
    4.Margot Robbie “I, Tonya” (Alt. Winner)
    5.Saoirse Ronan “Lady Bird”

    • Isaac

      I agree with your predictions less with Meryl streep. I’d put Jessica Chastain for Molly’s game or maybe Emma stone for battle of the sexes.

      • Sentinel666

        I’m predicting Meryl because she’s Meryl Streep, if you know what I mean 🙂 She can be nominated even If she played really weak. Academy love Streep and … Judi Dench too, so if not Meryl, then Judi Dench will be nominated. Jessica Chastain will be nominated to Golden Globe, but I don’t think so she’ll be among nominees at the Oscars.

        • Isaac

          Yeah i hate that. I mean there are another great performances, and nominate Meryl.

        • theatregeek

          Meryl is great in the film. Perhaps less of a “transformative” performance like Iron Lady or Into the Woods, but she does terrific, grounded work and you root for her throughout. She has a powerful story arc, and got multiple rounds of applause at a screening.

  • Fabio Ruiz

    1 – Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water (Best performance of the year, without any doubt)
    2 – Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    3- Emma Stone – Battle of Sexes
    4 – Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird
    5 – Kate Winslet – Wonder Wheel

  • Fabio Ruiz

    Just saw Victoria and Abdul yesterday. So changing my predictions.
    1 – Sally Hawkins – The Shape of Water
    2 – Judi Dench – Victoria and Abdul
    3 – Frances McDormand – Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
    4 – Emma Stone – Battle of Sexes
    5 – Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird

    • Emi Grant

      Buzz on her isn’t that big thus far.

      Very exciting! Really have no clue on who’s winning. Kind of hoping it’s Saoirse.

  • Jorge G Naredo

    Emma Watson put a lot of effort in Beauty and the Beast she needs to at least be a nominee

    • Isaac

      hahahah You’re joking right?

    • Stop readingMyOpinionSucks

      Emma Watson’s performance in “Beauty and the Beast” was awful and clearly one of the laziest of her career. I’m sure you’re joking.

  • Iván

    Helen’s nomination to the golden globes gotta be a joke right?!!?

  • Richard R

    Margot Robbie can’t win SAG. I Tonya didn’t get into ensemble. That shows a lack of support for the film as a whole. She is not going to win BAFTA and will most likely lose the Golden Globe to Ronan. With a SAG snub Meryl Streep is not going to go on and win the Oscar. Sally Hawkins is most likely not going to win SAG since The Shape of Water didn’t get into ensemble. Judy Dench is not winning SAG. The honor for her was just getting a nom. That means either Francis Mcdormand or Ronan are likely winning SAG. 3 Billboards overperformed at SAG by Getting two actors into supporting. With the strong showing at SAG for Billboards Francis is likely to win there. Right now I would say she or Ronan are likely winning Oscar

    • Isaac

      Frances Frances, not Francis

  • Reece

    Fighting for win (it’s close bc they’re both winning Globes):
    1. Frances McDormand – Three Billboards
    2. Saoirse Ronan – Lady Bird

    Safe for nomination:
    3. Margot Robbie – I, Tonya

    Judi Dench- Victoria And Abdul
    Meryl Streep – The Post

  • Last year there was an equally competitive best actress race and Meryl Streep got in for the dud that was Florence Foster Jenkins over Amy Adams in Arrival. Lesson: Meryl is never not safe.

    • Iván

      I can’t still recover from Amy adams’ snub, is time for meryl to be snub and she can know what does It feels like!!!!

      • Isaac

        Yeah i really prefer that spot for Jessica Chastain in Molly’s game

  • Yaroslav Vdovenko

    O, god, throw away Margo from the winner of the competition, it’s definetely not her time!!!

  • Emi Grant

    Dude, we all love Margot Robbie, but it really doesn’t feel like this will be her year at all.

  • Mohamad Hosein Tavakoli

    Do u really think margo will win or kidding us??!!

    • Isaac

      I think she has big chances to win. But it’s a tough category this year having Saoirse, Frances and Sally.

  • Zooey Bloom

    As always, you’re such a Meryl hater. This is what you’d love to see. But DDL, whose film has been snubbed everywhere, it in second position. Haha.

    I’ll give this year to McDormand. Hawkins held the silent role well but besides that her character was pretty generic.

    • Yaroslav Vdovenko

      McDormand had a very strong perfomance but if to look carefully I see some inhibition in her acts. Like ok, just sitting and looking anywhere, oh god I have to portray some pain in my soul))))

      • Emi Grant

        You can pretty much reduce any performance ever to that.

    • Ryan Hynes

      Perhaps a bit controversial, but I feel like McDormand’s performance was supporting (and Sam Rockwell was lead?) Where’s the controversy over category fraud (i’m reminded of the issue people took with Rooney M. and Alicia V. being put in supporting despite ample screen time)

  • Emi Grant

    So… do we really have to wait until SAGs and CCs before you take Margot out of N1?

  • Stop readingMyOpinionSucks

    I have seen the top 3 and will say that I liked McDormand the best, then Robbie, than Hawkins but I doubt Robbie will be much of a contender. Her acting was good but the role didn’t seem like a very difficult one when compared to the leaders.

  • Vicente Mariani Mariani

    Saiorse Ronan looks very much a Oscar winner.
    She is gonna win.
    But Jennifer Lawrence should have been nominated.

    • Yaroslav Vdovenko

      I hope so)))))
