The Academy just named this year’s Best Actress, and we totally saw it coming.
The 91st annual Oscar Awards took place tonight, and Olivia Colman walked away with the statuette for Best Actress in a Leading Role for playing Queen Anne in The Favourite.
The actress edged out Yalitza Aparicio for Roma, Glenn Close for The Wife, Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
The Best Actress in a Leading Role category has been around since 1929. While Katharine Hepburn currently holds the record for most wins (four), Meryl Streep has the most nominations in this category, with 17.
