This is a strong year for actresses in both lead (and supporting) roles.  The women in each category are enlisted alphabetically.

Frontrunners

Yalitza Aparicio (“Roma”)

Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”)–Unseen yet

Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”)

Lady Gaga (“A Star is Born”)

Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”)

Glenn Close (“The Wife”)

Viola Davis (“Widows”)

Claire Foy (“First Man”)

Nicole Kidman (“Destroyer”)
