Who Should Win The Academy Awards For Best Actress This Year?

The Academy Awards will be aired early morning in India on February 27. Let’s look at the real nominees of the year, and who we think should win the award…

Emma Stone – La La Land 

A front-runner to win the award this year, many say Emma Stone is the reason why Viola Davis is shifted to Best Supporting Actress category, even when she is the lead actress of Fences. This is said to be done to give awards to both. Speculations apart, the immensely likeable Stone gives her best performance in the musical romantic drama, as an aspiring actress who has to make some difficult choices when it comes to the matters of the heart.

Ruth Negga  –  Loving 

I had always noticed Ruth Negga’s talent when she had played a supporting role in the TV series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., so it’s glad to see the Academy Award notice her talent and nominate her work for Loving. However, I am sure the jury would not consider anything more than a nomination for her since Loving wasn’t exactly loved well by everyone.

Meryl Streep – Florence Foster Jenkins

If Meryl Streep has a movie releasing any year, the Academy Award jury has made it their agenda to nominate her despite how the movie looks like. So this year too, she gets nominated for her brilliant work as the terrible late singer on Florence Foster Jenkins. But whether this will culminate into her winning her fourth award remains to be seen.

Isabelle Huppert –  Elle

Her previous controversial work might go against her. Then there is also the matter that some of the jury members feel Elle actually glamorises rape. But removing her performance out of the context of the controversies, Isabelle Huppert is mind numbingly terrific as the corporate woman, whose life takes a hard turn after she was raped by a masked intruder.

Natalie Portman –  Jackie

We found Natalie Portman’s performance as the widowed wife of JFK to be much better than her performance in Black Swan, for which she won her first Oscar, though not as great her performance in Leon and Closer. She embodies grace and tragedy into her role, as she tries to pick up her life after the sudden shocking assassination of her husband.

Going by the above choices, this is what we feel about who deserves to win the award is….

Either: Natalie Portman – Jackie

Or: Emma Stone – La La Land
