Pete Hammond (Deadline) and I agree: the Best Actress race is the hottest contest at the upcoming Oscars. According to the predictions of our Gold Derby experts, two of Hollywood’s sexiest superstars lead the match-up: Natalie Portman (“Jackie”) and Emma Stone (“La La Land”). Stone is currently out front at this point in the race, according to our latest odds (2/1 for Stone, 3/1 for Portman), but there are still many twists and bumps in the long track ahead.
In the video above, Pete and I handicap the stars who have the best odds at Gold Derby. Sorry if we overstepped your fave. We’re forced to stick with the list!
