Early Predictions in Oscars' Lead Acting Races, From Chadwick Boseman to Sophia Loren

  Early Predictions in Oscars' Lead Acting Races, From Chadwick Boseman to Sophia Loren Here are a few things we know about the lead acting races for the 93rd Academy Awards: Past Oscars winners Olivia Colman, Viola Davis, Tom Hanks, Anthony Hopkins, Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman and Kate Winslet will likely be in the mix. Oscars newcomers like Riz Ahmed, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Vanessa Kirby, Delroy Lindo and Steven Yeun will be looking to break in. Sophia Loren could have a chance to receive her first Oscar nomination since 1964 or win her first Oscar since 1960. Amy Adams could end her 0-for-6 Oscar streak (and in the supporting category, Glenn Close could end her 0-for-7 streak for the same movie).

Glenn Close said this week that Gwyneth Paltrow's 1998 "Best Actress" Oscar for "Shakespeare in Love" just "doesn't make sense."

Close was on ABC News' "Popcorn with Peter Travers" to promote her new Netflix film, "Hillbilly Elegy," when she shared her distaste for awards on the grounds that she can't justify comparing artists' works.

"I've never understood how you could honestly compare performances. I remember the year Gwyneth Paltrow won over that incredible actress who was in 'Central Station,'" she said, referring to Fernanda Montenegro. Paltrow and Montenegro were also up against Cate Blanchett (for "Elizabeth"), Meryl Streep (for "One True Thing") and Emily Watson (for "Hilary and Jackie").

While he's consistently been at the top of the A-list, the roles DiCaprio has taken have changed dramatically. In "Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood," DiCaprio lends his star power to help Quentin Tarantino shape a new Tinsel Town legend.

Fortunately, the stars did not disappoint at the 2020 E! People's Choice Awards as they stepped out in stunning ensembles akin to works of art. From Jennifer Lopez in a candy apple red Christian Siriano design to Jameela Jamil's neon pink Christopher John Rogers suit, every look helped to end this year on a more beautiful note. 

Close went on, "I thought, 'What?' It's like, it doesn't make sense, so I think who wins has a lot of things to do with how things have been, whether it has traction or whatever. Publicity, how much money did they have to put it out in front of everybody's sight? So, you know, I have to be philosophical about it."

The "they" in question here is Harvey Weinstein's production company, which was behind "Shakespeare in Love." The film also won "Best Picture" at that year's awards ceremony.

Close herself has been nominated for seven Oscars, giving her the title of the most-nominated actress without a single win. Travers brought up the industry surprise at her failure to net a win so far, calling her "gracious" about the whole thing.

He asked, "How do you handle things like that?" The conversation led to her sharing her thoughts, including her conviction that even to be nominated by her peers is "as good as it gets."
