Check out who is in rod and longshots would be the best bet to make the mad.

Legendary actress Glenn Close is known for her work in films such as The Big Chill, The Natural, Fatal Attraction, and 101 Dalmatians. Over the span of her 45-year profession, the versatile star of stage and screen has won three Tony Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and three Primetime Emmy Awards.
From The Wife, Close stars as a woman who questions her life decisions as she travels to Stockholm with her husband (Jonathan Pryce), a soon-to-be Nobel Prize winner. Her performance at the Sony Pictures Classics play has made her a Golden Globe in Addition to a Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress. When it comes to the Academy, Close is a seven-time Oscar nominee, meaning she’s more nominations without a win than any other living actor.
With a chance at making history, Close is a lock for Best Actress. The Academy loves to reward actors that are always nominated without a triumph. Recall when Leonardo DiCaprio eventually won Best Actor for The Revenant? Despite strong competition from Olivia Colman and Lady Gaga, it is all but guaranteed that the Academy recognizes Close to get a career filled with terrific performances. BetStarsNJ now has shut as a -800 favourite.
Essential awards for Glenn Close
Golden Globes: Best Actress — Motion Picture Drama
Screen Actors Guild of America: Outstanding Female Actor in a Leading Role
English celebrity Olivia Colman is best known for her characters in Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz (2007), The Iron Lady (2011), also Tyrannosaur (2011). After working with Yorgos Lanthimos on his 2015 film, The Lobster, Colman reunited with the Greek filmmaker for Your Favourite, where she portrays Anne, Queen of Great Britain.
For her work in the period piece, Colman won the Golden Globe for Best Actress — Motion Picture Musical or Comedy and has been nominated by the Screen Actors Guild Award. That is her first Oscar nomination, so it’s safe to say that the Academy will opt to award 71-year-old actress Close over Colman, as she’ll probably be nominated again later on. Sportsbook playMGM now has Colman in +550.

British Academy of Film and Television Awards: Major Actress
Lady Gaga resides for its applause (the applause, the applause). The singer, songwriter and actress is cherished because of her chart-topping singles and intriguing visual style. At A Star is Born, the pop megastar plays with Ally, a waitress and aspiring performer who falls in love with Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), a renowned rocker having a drinking problem who sees her talent and coaxes her from obscurity and into the spotlight.
A Star is Born was selected by the National Board of Review as one of the Top 10 Movies of 2018 and won Best Actress, Best Director and Best Supporting Actor. It also received five Golden Globe nominations, two Directors Guild of America Awards nods, four Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations and eight Oscar nods.
Gaga delivers a fantastic performance in Cooper’s film, but it seems like the Academy will choose to recognize her contribution everywhere, especially the Best Song category. Her song,”Shallow,” is really a shoo-in to win that class, but the Best Actress belongs to Close.
