After her SAG win, Emma Stone became the clear front runner. Before the Globes Natalie Portman was the one to beat. Isabelle Huppert has more precursor awards than both of them.
If Emma Stone really is the one to beat, then who can pull the upset?
Isabelle could win the way Roberto Benigni did (for a foreign language film) or lose like Penelope Cruz did (for Volver) in a foreign film that didn’t even get a Foreign Language Film nomination. Who is your predicted winner? And Who deserves to win(in your opinion)February 1, 2017 at 11:58 pm #1202001264
In my opinion: Isabelle Huppert deserves to win, but Emma Stone will win …. Natalie Portman was amazing too (also deserves to win)February 2, 2017 at 3:58 am #1202001360

i’m not so sure Stone will win, we need to see what will happen at the BAFTA on Sunday 12th February, if the voters choose Portman, then Huppert & Portman have a chance to win the Oscar, otherwise we could say Stone is a lock for the trophy the 26th February… I’m pretty curious to find out how the british industry feel this Best Actress raceFebruary 2, 2017 at 4:03 am #1202001362
A BAFTA win for Portman will make it a three-way race again.February 2, 2017 at 4:03 am #1202001363
Another Mauricio already created a thread exactly like this one a couple of days ago.February 2, 2017 at 5:08 am #1202001387
I don’t think Stone is a lock yet, but I think she’ll win.
1) Stone wins BAFTA: Then it’s over. Stone wins Oscar.
2) Portman wins BATFA: Then we have a 3 way race: Stone, Portman, Huppert. In this case, I think Stone would win because Portman and Huppert would split votes. In a 3 way race Stone has SAG, GG and she is in the movie with 14 noms, she’s young, beautiful, humble, and funny. Gosling is not winning. She is LLL. Forget about it. She would have enough votes to prevail beacause there’s no other clear alternative candidate.
3) Some other wins BAFTA: Then Huppert might upset, but I don’t see it happening .February 2, 2017 at 5:36 am #1202001407
Portman’s problem, I think, is even if she does somehow prevail over at BAFTA, I see her and Huppert pulling from a very similar pool of voters within the Academy. Stone would still rather comfortably win the Oscar, I suspect.

These threads are getting out of hand.February 2, 2017 at 9:59 am #1202001619
No. Stay pressed.February 2, 2017 at 10:26 am #1202001645
Emma Stone is the frontrunner. If someone is upsetting, it would be Huppert. I think it could happen, but the frontrunner remains to be Emma. Natalie would be a very deserving winner, but she has 0% possibilities to win.February 2, 2017 at 11:07 am #1202001668
Unfortunately as weak as she is in La La Land, Emma Stone has about 90% chance of winning this. I feel like this is the same coversation everyone had about Lawrence vs Riva.
Remember, the Oscars have become all about the money and political machine. Emma Stone has the machine behind her and as respected as Huppert is, that is not enough to win.
