2017 Oscar Predictions – Best Actress

UPDATED – FEBRUARY 23, 2017 – FINAL PREDICTIONS – Emma Stone nabbed herself the Globe, SAG, and BAFTA.  A terrific trajectory for her to win her first Academy Award.  Natalie Portman came on strong at the start of the season but there’s no past winner that would fit as winning an Oscar with just a BFCA win.  Sure there are Adrien Brody’s and other shockers in our history but they don’t typically steal it from a Best Picture winning performance.
