2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

2015 Oscar Predictions: Best Actress

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the
87th Academy Awards through February 22nd, when the winners are announced.

This is not a contest. In a year where three of the acting races are essentially set in stone, Best Actress is the most set. Julianne Moore has pretty much had this locked down since September, and there’s really no conceivable scenario that could change that.

Our prediction below. Check out our predictions in other categories here.

The Nominees:
Marion Cotillard, “Two Days, One Night”
Felicity Jones, “The Theory of Everything”
Julianne Moore, “Still Alice”
Rosamund Pike, “Gone Girl”
Reese Witherspoon, “Wild”

Will Win: Julianne Moore, “Still Alice”
Could Win: Reese Witherspoon, “Wild” (but not really)
Should Win: Rosamund Pike, “Gone Girl”
Shoulda Been Here: Scarlett Johansson, “Under The Skin”
