Our Gold Derby odds are predicting tight races in the acting races of Glenn Close (“The Wife”) vs. Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), Rami Malek (“Bohemian Rhapsody”) vs. Christian Bale (“Vice”), Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”) vs. Rachel Weisz (“The Favourite”) and Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”) vs. Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”). For the Best Picture race, it could be a narrow victory for “Roma,” “Green Book,” “BlacKkKlansman” or “The Favourite.”
