Olivia Colman Is The Most Recent Academy Award Nominee

In our Best Actress Oscar odds, the Queen of Upsets is suddenly one of the top five possibilities. Olivia Colman’s performance in “The Lost Daughter” has propelled her to fifth place in the polls. Olivia is vying for her second Academy Award and third nomination.

Colman defeated defending champion Frances McDormand in the duel for sixth place (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”).

There’s no doubting that they’ve both won three of the last four Best Actress Oscars. McDormand handed the award to Colman last year when she defeated Glenn Close for her portrayal in “The Favourite.”  “The Eyes of Tammy Faye” by Jessica Chastain, “Parallel Mothers” by Penelope Cruz, and “Black Hole” by Lady Gaga round out the top five (“House of Gucci”).

The Rise Of Olivia Colman

Colman’s rise has been gradual and steady over the last two months, with a number of film festivals praising his performance in “The Lost Daughter.

 “The Lost Baby,” Maggie Gyllenhaal’s directorial debut, starring Olivia Colman as Leda, a woman on vacation who becomes enamored with Dakota Johnson’s Nina and her kid, forcing her to confront her own past as a mother.

“The Lost Daughter” is based on the novel of the same name by Elena Ferrante. In flashbacks, Jessie Buckley plays a youthful Leda.

Olivia’s Third Academy Award nomination

Colman’s third Oscar nomination would come after being nominated as a supporting actress for “The Father”. Earlier this year and won her first Emmy for “The Crown.”

 She’s been nominated for several awards since winning the Oscar, and it wouldn’t be surprising if she earned another. In addition, “The Lost Daughter” will be released in theatres on December 17. Followed by a Netflix release on December 31, and her new HBO limited series “Landscapers” will premiere on December 6.

As reports suggest, Colman should never be underestimated. Two Best Actress Oscars in a row is not unheard of, but only Frances McDormand, Glenda Jackson, Olivia de Havilland, and Bette Davis have done it.
