Poll results: 91 percent of you are confident Jessica Chastain will be the next ‘The Help’ star to win an Oscar

Poll results: 91 percent of you are confident Jessica Chastain will be the next ‘The Help’ star to win an Oscar
Jessica Chastain should clear some room on her shelf. A whopping 91 percent of you believe she will be the fifth actress from “The Help” to win an Oscar since the film’s release in 2011.

The result is hardly surprising since many feel or have thought the two-time nominee should’ve won by now after her breakout 2011 that included six films and her first nomination for “The Help.” Chastain is seeking to join Octavia Spencer, who beat her for “The Help,” Viola Davis (“Fences” [2016]), Emma Stone (“La La Land” [2016]) and now Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) in “The Help”’s golden circle. Chastain, who hasn’t been nominated since 2012’s “Zero Dark Thirty,” has a handful of projects in deck, including “George and Tammy,” in which she’ll play country singer Tammy Wynette.

“You can imagine her as Tammy as you watch her in The Help,” user Colin McNamara wrote.

The Shape Of Water Takes Home Best Picture At The 90th Academy Awards

The Academy celebrated its 90th birthday on Sunday evening in style. Filled with montages of both classic and recent films, this year’s Oscars, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, was infused with the right mix of humor that had a more relaxed and natural tone. Inclusion was the highlight of the evening and many of the acceptance speeches continued to raise attention to the Time’s Up and Me Too movements, immigrants and minorities.

Best Picture went to The Shape Of Water. The fantasy film also saw Oscars for director Guillermo del Toro, production design and original score.

Allison Janney can add an Academy Award to her acting accolades, which includes a Golden Globe and seven Emmys.

Following her humorous best supporting actress acceptance speech at Sunday evening’s Oscar Awards, the I, Tonya star, 58, revealed she had nearly abandoned her hopes of winning a golden statue, emphatically thanking the film’s screenwriter Steven Rogers for creating the role of Tonya Harding’s mother, Lavona “Sandy” Golden.

2018 Oscars: How were winners for the 90th Academy Awards chosen?

2018 Oscars: How were winners for the 90th Academy Awards chosen?
Winners of 23 of the 24 races at the 90th Academy Awards were decided by popular vote: i.e, each of the 7,258 members of the academy has chosen just one of the nominees and the Oscar goes to the contender with the most votes. The winner of Best Picture is arrived at by using a modified version of the preferential voting that determined the nominees in those other races.

For the 2018 Oscars, voters were asked to rank the nine Best Picture nominees. If one nominee garnered more than 50% of the first place votes, it wins Best Picture. If, as is more likely, no nominee reaches this threshold, the film with the fewest first-place votes is eliminated, with its ballots being reapportioned to the second-place choice.

2018 Oscars: What time does the show start, who will win, who hosts the 90th Academy Awards?

The 2018 Oscars air live nationwide on Sunday, March 4 from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood beginning at 5:00 p.m. Pt/8:00 p.m. Et on ABC. The 90th Academy Awards will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel (“Jimmy Kimmel Live”). He was invited back to emcee after doing an outstanding job last year, especially in those chaotic closing moments after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that “La La Land” had won Best Picture when it was really “Moonlight.”

Those two Oscar winners have been invited back for a do-over. They will be presenting Best Picture again, which we are predicting will go to Martin McDonagh‘s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” Our exclusive odds — which are based on Oscar predictions by 30 expert journalists, our in-house team of 7 editors and thousands of readers — also forecast that the film’s star, Frances McDormand, will win a second Oscar for her searing performance

Its closest rival there, “The Shape of Water,” was shut out of these precursor prizes.

Back in early 2015 it was announced that then-rising star Margot Robbie would be portraying cleaning lady-turned-illegal sports betting empire boss Marisa Lankester in Dangerous Odds, and now it looks like the project is ready to move forward.
