Kristen Stewart this movie would break her 12-year Oscar curseHollywood
If Stewart wins, she will be the first Best Actress winner in 13 years to be in her 30s. Kate Winslet was 33 years old when she got her sixth nomination for The Reader in 2008. Women in their 20s, 40s, 50s, and 60s have won the previous 12 prizes
When you portray Princess Diana with such grace and bold acting, then the chances of getting an Oscar become very high. In this regard, Kristen Stewart is a clear favourite to win Best Actress at the Academy Awards for her portrayal of Princess Diana in the film Spencer.
If Stewart wins, she will be the first Best Actress winner in 13 years to be in her 30s. Kate Winslet was 33 years old when she got her sixth nomination for The Reader in 2008. Women in their 20s, 40s, 50s, and 60s have won the previous 12 prizes. Thirty-somethings, on the other hand, have been left out in the cold.
It’s a significant departure for the Oscars, which have a history of favouring younger women (versus preferring to crown older men). Yes, four twenty-somethings heard their names called over this time period, with JLaw becoming the category’s second youngest winner at 22, but the average age of a Best Actress winner is 36.9, and the 30s is the most common decade for a woman to win, with 34 Best Actress winners in their 30s.
With a performance that many have dubbed the best of her career, Stewart appears to be difficult to dethrone at the moment. In some ways, Stewart, who will celebrate her 32nd birthday less than two weeks after the Oscars on March 27, appears older than she is. She feels like she’s been around forever, and she was everywhere during the Twilight era, and she’s successfully moved into a successful adult job.
Stewart is one of two thirty-somethings in the current Best Actress list, the other being Lady Gaga’s House of Gucci, who turns 36 the day after the Oscars. Jessica Chastain is in second place, three days before the Oscars. McDormand is in third place, while Penelope Cruz, 47, is in fifth place.
