Who will win Best Actress, Musical or Comedy: Emma Stone or Annette Bening? | The Tylt
Emma Stone in "La La Land" and Annette Bening in "20th Century Woman" are facing off at the Golden Globes for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy category. While some critics consider Stone a lock to win the Golden Globe for her musical performance, others say Bening is long overdue and should win for playing a mother who raises a son with the help of two other women in 1979. But which actress deserves to win big at the Golden Globes? 🎥 🌟
Who will win Best Actress, Musical or Comedy: Emma Stone or Annette Bening?
The legendary actress is nominated for her title role in "Florence Foster Jenkins." But many see the Golden Globes for musical or comedy as a race between Stone and Bening—who are more likely to be nominated for the Academy Award in the Best Actress category.
Stone is garnering a lot of Oscar buzz as Mia, a barista and aspiring actress who falls in love with a jazz musician as they both chase their dreams.
Stone has been nominated for Best Actress, Musical or Comedy before, for her performance in "Easy A." But this is the first time she was the frontrunner to win. If she wins the Golden Globe, this might mean a two-way Oscar race between her and Natalie Portman in "Jackie."
Bening is no stranger to the Best Actress, Musical or Comedy category. She won in this category for past performances in "Being Julia" and "The Kids Are All Right."
BUT since the Globes is a precursor to the Oscars—and Bening is long overdue for an Oscar win—she might pull off a win at the Golden Globes. Some critics argue she deserves to win for her comedic-dramatic turn as Dorothea, a mother who seeks help in raising her son in 1979. Bening has already won a few critic awards.
