The French-Canadian actress has so far won all the Best Actress awards of the 2016 Award season.

The 2016 Oscars are scheduled for Sunday, the 28th of February, 2016. As is the tradition the Best Actress category has some very fine performances. However the frontrunner by far seems to be Brie Larson.

Brie Larson gave a performance in the film ‘Room’ which could sum up ten incredible performances. The film about an abductee who tries to make a life for her son in her prison the Room is captivating. Many are rooting for Larson to take home the gold from the 88th Academy Awards. 

Larson’s performance from an artistic point of view is really raw. It is a remarkable drama where a 26-year-old Californian plays a kidnap victim. Larson captivates the screen as she raises her son in a shed in the backyard of her captor.

The story of a sexual predator imprisoning Larson for years is also an obvious odds-on favourite to win as best actress. Through all the highs and lows gravitas for Larson’s character in Room is more intense.

The performance carried incredible amount of weight as the lives of this young mother and her child changes. 

Another strong contender in the Best Actress category is Saoirse Ronan for ‘Brooklyn’. Ronan plays an Irish-American in New York City in the 1950s. It shows a dislocated newcomer in a new land and channels an immigrant’s experience. However when compared to Larson’s performance in ‘Room’, the ‘Brooklyn’ falls a little short. 

The other nominees for the 2016 Oscar in the Best Actress category contain some big names. They are Charlotte Rampling, Jennifer Lawrence, and Cate Blanchett.

Jennifer Lawrence has been nominated for her role in ‘Joy’ as the founder of the miracle mop. Meanwhile Cate Blanchett captivated viewers in the film ‘Carol’. The eldest of the group Charlotte Rampling has been nominated for one of her best performances to date in ’45 years’. 

Another indication of an Oscar win for Larson is the fact she has won almost all the awards of the 2016 season. Larson took home a Golden Globe, a SAG award and innumerable critics’ association award.

All the awards were for Larson’s role in ‘Room’ so the favorite going into Oscar night will be Larson. If somehow Larson does not win it would be upsetting for a large number of fans and critics. 

Larson started acting when she was only 6 years old. Larson has had memorable roles in numerous films. Some of her most prominent roles are in 21 Jump Street, 13 Going On 30 and Trainwreck. The ‘Room’ was perhaps the breakout role of the French Canadian actress career. 

What makes Larson’s win a win-win for all parties involved is the fact she actually deserves it. The portrayal of a woman cut off from the rest of civilization for years is executed splendidly by Larson.

Larson convincingly portrays a woman held against her will and has learned to survive in a tiny room. Larson has given an extraordinary portrayal of an essentially ordinary woman. Larson’s bewitching performance with a story based on contemporary reality is a sure winner. Poetic justice would be for Larson to win as she should win. 

The 88th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 28, at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center in Hollywood, and will be televised live by the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
