    There are nine actresses according to the Gold Derby odds who have less than 100-1 odds; in order they are: Regina King, Amy Adams, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Claire Foy, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, Michelle Yeoh and Emily Blunt. The first five are the Golden Globe nominees. The last five imo are vying for the fifth slot and I can’t decide what the academy voters will do. Kidman and Blunt have an advantage of having lead actress viability; Robbie has a SAG nomination; Foy has been having a great year and won an Emmy; Yeoh has had a great career and it could be considered a career nomination. It could go any which way. I wish Marina de Tavira was on the list, but I think the five are definitely from those nine actresses, it’s just a question of who gets the fifth slot?

    IMO, Yeoh is not in this race at all. She’s missed every single precursor so far. Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice should have been strong possibilities for her.

    ^there have been cases when someone has missed all the precursors and still gotten a nomination. I know for certain that happened for Toni Collete for The Sixth Sense. I would have to look and see if there are others. I am not predicting Yeoh but I can understand why she is in the top 9.

    And don’t forget Marcia Gay Harden in Pollock, who missed every precursors but ultimately won the Oscar.

    With all the craziness this seasons, this crazy scenario is actually becoming somewhat realistic:

    1. The Globe goes to Weisz or Stone.
    2. This splits the Academy on who to choose and they accidentally cancel each other out.
    3. The Oscar lineup is King, Adams, and a mixture of Foy, Kidman, Robbie, Blunt,  and Yeoh

    I have a hard time believing Weisz can win. There isn’t any passion for her performance either and her performance isn’t that much undeniable as Adams’ or King’s.

    the only thing stopping weisz from taking this one is her previous win, I personally think she’s got the career and talent to justify two wins but looks like most here think otherwise

    LOL. King and Adams wish they gave a better performance than Weisz. Weisz’s performance was mesmerizing and fantastic. And trust me her performance has a lot of passion. I read and see more people everyday saying she should win. She will win BAFTA. And if she also manages to win either Globe or SAG then I think she has this. She deserves this second win more than Adams or King deserve their first. I still don’t see what everyone saw in Adam’s performance. It’s not even one of her best. And in The Master she had less screen time and yet she managed to still the show and gave a marvelous performance. In Vice she was good but I don’t want her to win for That. Like at all.

    While I certainly could be happy with Rachel Weisz winning I don’t believe it will happen. I think it’s wishful thinking at this point. If she wins both the Globe and SAG I would then change my mind but I don’t see that happening at all. Many people liked Emma Stone’s performance better than Weisz’s and they are going to cancel each other out.

    Stone and Weisz at the moment it’s really tough to say at least for me. Adams was also amazing and I would love it if she won as well. Haven’t seen King yet. Whoever gets the fifth spot is lucky to get nominated. It’s either going to be Foy, Kidman, or Robbie. I Haven’t seen boy erased or Mary queen of scots so idk.

    For choosing who will win, this is the category that is stumping me the most.

    LOL.

    Considering the fact that Weisz is essentially LEAD, of course she will have more screen time and more opportunities to be “showier.” I loved her performance, don’t get me wrong, but it is in no way undeniable (let’s giver her the Oscar!) I really have a hard time believing that AMPAS would reward her for THAT when they could reward Adams a would be 6th time nominee for a performance that is true to the definition AND is superb, scene-stealing, and TRUE to her character (she can easily go OTT on certain scenes but she had discipline) or King, a veteran actress who is a POC who was understated and quiet but still showed a lot of strength and power. It is actually between those two, as much as we would like Weisz to gain momentum. That’s my thoughts at least!
