AND THE NOMINEES FOR BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE WILL BE:

OLIVIA COLEMAN (The Lost Daughter) At the peak of her career Coleman can do no wrong and her performance in Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut will bring her her third acting nomination having already won Best Actress for ‘The Favorite” and picking up a Best Supporting Actress nomination in last year’s “The Father”.

PENELOPLE CRUZ (Parallel Mothers) Penelope is so amazing that she should have no trouble landing her fourth Oscar nomination ” following her Best Actress nod for “Volver” (2006), her win for Best Supporting Actress in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (2008) and her supporting nod for “Nine” (2009). This nomination will also make Penelope the first actress and only the second actor (following Marcello Mastroianni) in Oscar history to nominated three times for a non-English-speaking role.

NICOLE KIDMAN (Being the Ricardos) Exploding of out of left field at the last minute with her impressive take on Lucille Ball, Kidman should nab her fifth Oscar nomination (following Best Actress nods for “Moulin Rougre” (2001), “The Hours” (2002) – a win, and “Rabbit Hole” (2010) and a supporting nomination for “Lion” (2016)

House of Gucci

LADY GAGA (House of Gucci). It’s a terrible movie but Lady Gag’s Best Actress nod from the NYFCC makes Oscar nomination number two for Best Actress (following “A Star is Born” for which she WON Best Song) a certainty.

KRISTIN STEWART (Spencer) Her uncanny and fascinating performance as Diana makes Stewart the favorite to win in this category with just her first Oscar nomination.

AND THREE ADDITIONAL CONTENDERS:

TESSA THOMPSON (Passing) As the central character in Rebecca Hall’s “Passing”, Tessa Thompson deserves a Best Actress Nomination. However, in this field it’s going to be a tough fight. It’s more likely that her costar Ruth Negga will land a Best Supporting Actress nod while Rebecca Hall has a good chance for a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination. It would be her first nomination.

RACHEL ZEGLER (West Side Story) Newcomer Zegler is a radiant Maria and with a Best Actress nod from the National Board of Review she could easily make the final five and her first Oscar Nomination.

RENATE REINSVE (The Worst Person in the World) It’s a real long shot, but Renate Reinsve is so luminous in Joachim Trier’s movie. With the film positioned to be nominated for Best International Film, and possibly also for Director and Original Screenplay, the Norwegian actress could land her first nomination.
