She’s getting raves almost across the board. The closest thing to a lock in this raceDespite the less than stellar reception of the film, Chastain is getting all the praise. Could be contending for the win if she plays her cards rightThe film has its defenders, and everyone is singling her performance. She will need precursor help to stick aroundNo actress in Hollywood is on a hotter Oscar streak than McDormand. It is much more likely they would be sick of her than her being badI don’t trust Gucci at all, but Gaga’s acting career may be undeniable. Nobody has any idea what to expect from the film

She has shown the ability to be nominated for Spanish-speaking Almodovar movies in the past, so why don’t do it again?She has kept popping up in the awards conversation and doesn’t look to be going away. Is she a lead?Someone always comes out of nowhere and it looks like it’s Haim. The film’s reception singles out her, but we’ll have to see how the public likes itShe has a ton of fans and commercial success, but will she be overshadowed by Negga or other aspects of the film?The film arrived with a “Meh” but Hudson was singled out. Maybe she can win some precursors and leg it out

Mara is not the awards draw that the rest of the cast is, but it has a shot if the film hitsBerry has to return to the Oscar limelight eventually, right? She directs herself in this MMA dramaThe buzz around the film is growing and Bullock hasn’t been in the mix in a while. Might be time for a resurgenceHollywood loves to award brand-new stars and Jones seems primed. Could be in line for breakthrough awardsShe’s been all over the place in quality since her Oscar win, but as the most familiar face in the film, she could find herself in the Academy’s good graces again
