Biopics for a hot topic are all the rage and if Larrain can get that performance out of Portman in Jackie, maybe Stewart can break through with OscarI don’t trust Gucci at all, but Gaga’s acting career maybe undeniable. Nobody has any idea what to expect from the filmThis looks like a big performance and Oscar loves when you play a real person. Can she be truly seen under all that makeup?No 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 badThe film looks like a showcase just for her, but will the it be good enough to garner her awards consideration?

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 a ton of fans and the 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 outHollywood 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

The film’s reviews are mixed at best, but Taylor-Joy is beloved across the industry. If audiences love it, you never knowBerry has to return to the Oscar limelight eventually, right? She directs herself in this MMA dramaBlanchett is always great, but she already has two wins and the Oscars are fresh off awarding McDormand her third. But, if the film is a hit…She has kept popping up in the awards conversation and doesn’t look to be going away. Is she a lead?The buzz around the film is growing and Bullock hasn’t been in the mix in a while. Might be time for a resurgence
