Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) made SAG history in January when she became the first person to win Best Actress twice. She won’t get that title if she prevails in Best Actress at Saturday’s Independent Spirit Awards, but she could be No. 2, which is also pretty impressive.
With a leading 3/10 odds in our latest predictions, McDormand would join Julianne Moore as the category’s only two-time winners in the Spirit Awards’ 33-year history. Moore won for “Far From Heaven” (2002) and “Still Alice” (2014), while McDormand took home her first Spirit Award for “Fargo” (1996) — one of the film’s six wins.
Unlike Moore, though, McDormand will likely claim the Oscar for both of her Spirit-winning roles. The “Three Billboards” star has 2/13 odds to score her second Best Actress Oscar.
McDormand is up against two of her Oscar rivals at the Spirits: Saoirse Ronan (“Lady Bird”) and Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”). The expanded field of six includes Salma Hayek (“Beatriz at Dinner”), Shinobu Terajima (“Oh Lucy!”) and Regina Williams (“Life and Nothing More”).
