Who will win Best Actress: Emma Stone or Natalie Portman?
We're almost at the end of movie awards season, and 2016 was one hell of a year for motion pictures. But before the season passes us by—the Tylt is facing off four of the five praised leading performances from the acclaimed actresses nominated at the Oscars! But which actress should the Academy honor as Best Actress on Sunday night, Feb. 26?
Portman might not be in a Best Picture frontrunner, but her performance might be all she needs to win.
Portman literally became Jackie Kennedy in the biographical film that highlights the First Lady's grief, her family life, her husband's legacy and how Jackie Kennedy helped heal the country in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
Portman might have been winning smaller awards—like Desert Palm Achievement actress award at Palm Springs International Film Festival. But all Oscar precursors matter. She started the awards season strong in late 2016, and she might come out strong in the end—beating out Stone for the Best Actress Academy Award.
