The interpreters of ‘The mother of the blues’ and ‘Minari’ arrive at the ceremony after a long streak of awards. Next Sunday April 25-April 26 in Spain- we will meet the winners.
If we listen to the results in this year’s awards race, Viola Davis and Yuh-jung Youn are the favorites of the Oscars 2021 in the categories of Best Leading Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively. The interpreters of The mother of blues and Threaten They have been present in the great ceremonies so far -Globos de Oro, SAG, BAFTA …- and, among all their competitors, they are the ones that sound the most to be the winners.
If we talk about the category of Best Leading Actress, the truth is that the difference between actresses is not that great and the only thing for sure is that anything can happen on the night of April 25. The three grand prizes, those that give clues for the Academy ceremony, have had three different winners. Viola Davis has won in the SAG, Andra Day at the Golden Globes and Frances McDormand at the BAFTAs. The bets are between the three of them, but Davis is one of the most frequently played on the Oscars cheers.
As for Best Supporting Actress, Korean Yuh-jung Youn has the most advantage. Her portrayal as Grandma Soonja in Threaten it has aroused admiration and tenderness in equal measure. He has won the SAG and the BAFTA, two signs of his possible victory at the Oscars. Curiously, unlike her peers, she was not nominated for the Golden Globes. Even so, the Korean arrives as a favorite on the most important night of the Hollywood industry.
Best Leading Actress
Viola Davis (The mother of blues)
Davis has won IFP Gotham Awards Tribute, PSIFF Desert Palm Achievement, SAG, as well as being nominated for Indie Spirits, Golden Globes (Drama) Critics Choice and, of course, Oscars. As the winner of the SAGs, she is a favorite for the Academy Awards.
Frances McDormand (Nomadland)
While Nomadland is sweeping, its protagonist, Frances McDormand, is not the one who has won the most awards. So far he has taken those of NSFC and BAFTA, but the latter are important for the Oscars.
Carey Mulligan (A promising young woman)
A promising young woman It is one of the essential films of this year. It is equally unsettling and passionate, and Carey Mulligan embroiders her performance. It is something that they have recognized in the Critics Choice or the LAFCA. There’s little chance she will win the Oscar, but wouldn’t it be great to see her pick up the statuette?
Andra Day (The United States vs. Billie Holiday)
Andra Day was the one who won the Golden Globe (drama), which is usually indicative for the Oscars, so she is also one of the favorites to win the statuette. The truth is that he embroiders his interpretation of the jazz legend.
Vanessa Kirby (Fragments of a woman)
Vanessa Kirby puts on a magnificent portrayal of a woman grieving the loss of her newborn daughter. Kirby deserves the nomination just because of the birthing sequence with which the film begins. Still, it is unlikely to be a winner.
Best Supporting Actress
Yuh-jung Youn (Threaten)
Yuh-jung Youn at 73 years old – with 40 years of experience behind her – has become the favorite of this awards ceremony. She has been a winner at the SAG and the BAFTA and there is no one who does not know her at this point. His victory at the Oscars is almost assured.
Maria Bakalova (COM)Borat, film film sequel)
Who ever saw Borat, film film sequel You will agree that Maria Bakalova’s performance deserved no less than an Oscar nomination. The actress finds herself in extreme situations throughout the events of the film and, even so, continues in her character.
Glenn Close (Hillbilly, a rural elegy)
So far, Glenn Close has not taken home any of the awards he has chosen for his role in Hillbilly, a rural elegy. She has never been a true favorite in the category and not because of her performance, but because the film has not fared very well with critics.
Olivia Colman (The father)
Olivia Colman swept 2019 with The favourite, where she played a hateful queen who, even so, conquered us all. On this occasion his role has nothing to do with that monarch and, although it does not sound as strong, it is not out of the stakes. On the other hand, no one would object to it being a winner.
Amanda Seyfried (Mank)
If the Oscar does not fall on Yuh-jung Youn, Amanda Seyfried is another favorite. Keep in mind that Mank he’s going home empty-handed and collecting few big prizes. Still, there are many who bet on Seyfried as the winner of the night – again, if it does not fall to the actress of Threaten.
