Celebrate Oscars in Style!


The 2021 Oscar nominees for Best Actress are Viola Davis (“Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”), Andra Day (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”), Vanessa Kirby (“Pieces of a Woman”), Frances McDormand (“Nomadland”), and Carey Mulligan (“Promising Young Woman”). Our current odds indicate that Mulligan (69/20) will take the prize, followed in order by Davis (4/1), Day (4/1), McDormand (4/1), and Kirby (9/2).

Viola Davis makes Oscars history as the most-nominated Black actress ever. The Ma Rainey's Black Bottom star is also the only Black woman with two Best Actress nominations.
