6 Actresses Who I Hope Will Win An Oscar In The Next Ten Years

Continuing the theme from my previous post, here are 6 actresses who I sincerely hope will have won their first competitive Oscar by the time that the 2033 ceremony rolls around.

  1. Aubrey Plaza

With her recent performances in Emily the Criminal, Black Bear, and Ingrid Goes West, Plaza has established herself as one of the most interesting actresses working today.  She’s willing to take risks that other performers are not and, in a perfect world, she would have been rewarded with several nominations to her name.

2. Anna Kendrick

I guarantee that Anna Kendrick would give one of the best acceptance speeches ever.  Add to that, we already know that Anna Kendrick deserved to win for Pitch Perfect so, at this point, the Academy owes her an Oscar.  Get with it, Academy!

3. Thomasin McKenzie

Thomasin McKeznie deserved to be nominated for her poignant performance in Leave No Trace and she seems destined to win an Oscar someday, perhaps for one of her two upcoming films, Eileen and Perfect.  Because of her role in Leave No Trace, a lot of critics have compared McKenzie to Jennifer Lawrence.  Personally, I think she has more in common with Saoirse Ronan.  Like Ronan, McKenzie is one of those performers who seems to disappear into each role she plays and who brings a lot of conviction to each part, even when she’s appearing in something as silly as M. Night Shyamalan’s Old.  When you can give an award-worthy performance in something like Old, that means they’re going to have to give you an Oscar at some point.

4. Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten received her first Oscar nomination for Power of the Dog and, if the film had been a bit stronger, I imagine she probably would have won.  Hopefully, both she and Jesse Plemons will get a second chance to take home an Oscar.  It’s hard to think of another actress who plays depression with as much honesty as Kirsten Dunst.

5. Emily Blunt

Every year, I put Emily Blunt on this list.  I’m kind of amazed that she has yet to even be nominated, not even for Looper or A Quiet Place.  (Okay, neither one of those films were traditional Oscar films but she was brilliant in both of them.) She seems destined to be recognized eventually.  It’s just a question of when.

6. Lindsay Lohan

I hear you laughing but listen, everyone loves a good comeback story.  That’s especially true when it come to bloggers who spend all of their time trying to figure out a way to make the Oscars seem more exciting than they are.  Obviously, Lindsay’s not going to win an Oscar for appearing in a Netflix Christmas film but who knows?  Maybe someone will take a chance on her like the Safdies did when they cast Robert Pattison in Good Time and Adam Sandler in Uncut Gems.  Add to that, with Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried having been recently nominated, it’s time for the Academy to show some love to the rest of the cast of Mean Girls.

  1. My current hopefuls are Anya Taylor-Joy and Joel Edgerton (who were both great in The Menu and The Stranger last year). All your picks are excellent (I’m grandmothering in Lindsay because she was really good at one point).
