It's 2019 Oscar season! The Tylt is facing-off the best movies, directors, and actors—and we want you to predict the winners! While Olivia Colman poses a threat for her phenomenal work in "The Favourite," Glenn Close or Lady Gaga seem more likely to win Best Actress. Close is a frontrunner for her incredible work in "The Wife." The awards darling is long overdue; Close has been nominated seven times but never won an Oscar. Gaga broke out as an actress for her moving work in "A Star Is Born." But who should win Best Actress?

Glenn Close plays Joan Castleman, a woman who questions her path as a wife to a man who's about to receive a Nobel Prize for Literature in "The Wife." While Close's Best Actress nod is the only nomination for "The Wife," she is regarded as the frontrunner to win. The veteran actress has seven nominations under her belt, but no wins. This is shaping out to be her year.

Lady Gaga plays Ally, a rising singer/songwriter/pop star who is discovered by and falls in love with the self-destructive singer-songwriter Jackson "Jack" Maine in "A Star Is Born." Gaga and Close shared a split win for Best Actress at the SAG Awards. 

While "Shallow" is the frontrunner to Best Original Song, the race for Best Actress is tight. But pop stars have won Oscars in the past. Cher beat out Close at the 1988 Academy Awards, and history could repeat itself 31 years later.
