Who will win Best Actress: Emma Stone or Natalie Portman? | The Tylt
Emma Stone and Natalie Portman crushed the competition in our first round of the Best Actress Oscar bracket. These actresses have two of the most lauded performances of 2016. While Stone is the frontrunner for her role in "La La Land," Portman could still pull an upset and win her second Oscar for "Jackie." Now that we're in our final round—who will win the Oscar? 🎥🌟🏆
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?
Now it's Stone versus Portman. Who'll win?
The Best Actress race might be a done deal already. Stone's performance as an aspiring actress in the Best Picture frontrunner left moviegoers and critics in awe.
Let's see here—Stone has won the Golden Globe for Best Actress — Musical or Comedy, the BAFTA for Best Actress, and the SAG for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. There's no stopping her at this point.
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.
Only the Oscar is left for Stone to take home.
But Portman's performance moved audiences.
Just watched "Jackie". It's a wonderful film, but heartbreaking. I shall not be happy if Natalie Portman doesn't win Best Actress Oscar.— Mark S (@jacobs_ladder71) February 17, 2017
