Best Actress

Jessica Chastain-160
Penelope Cruz+330
Nicole Kidman+470
Kristen Stewart+850
Olivia Colman+1100

Jessica Chastain -160 (Bet $160 to win $100)

Jessica Chastain has been a favorite for the last little bit here after her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Not only was she the lead here, she also was a producer on the film that has her nominated for Best Actress. She's no stranger to nominations as she's also been nominated for The Help and Zero Dark Thirty. The way she was able to take over the role of Tammy Faye and do it justice was insanely impressive. The critics consensus on Rotten Tomatoes reads "The Eyes of Tammy Faye might have focused more sharply on its subject's story, but Jessica Chastain's starring performance makes it hard to look away."

Penelope Cruz +330 (Bet $100 to win $330)

From biggest longshot to the second favorite behind Jessica Chastain. It's been an insane run for Penelope Cruz the last week or so. Parallel Mothers is a Spanish drama film starring Penelope Cruz as the lead. Rotten Tomatoes critics consensus reads "A brilliant forum for Penélope Cruz's talent, Parallel Mothers reaffirms the familiar pleasures of Almodóvar's filmmaking while proving he's still capable of growth." If you got on Cruz at +2000 you're probably feeling pretty good about yourself right now. Will Cruz pull the upset tonight? The odds shift certainly makes it feel possible.
