94th Academy Awards Odds: Lady Gaga among frontrunners to win second Oscar award

Oscars season is approaching (March 27, 2022), and amid the glitz and glamour of a heavily anticipated awards ceremony, Lady Gaga is one of the headline names in contention for one of the top prizes, according to the British bookmakers odds and predictions.

There’s barely an award in mainstream entertainment that Lady Gaga hasn’t already won, which includes an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2018 for “Shallow,” the headline track from A Star Is Born.

But only a few years later and Stefani Germanotta is back with a vengeance and in the running to add an acting credit to her Oscars collection.

House of Gucci – Best movie?

As the fall season brings with it a key period in cinematic promotion leading up to the Oscars, Lady Gaga is an 8/1 contender to win Best Actress for her leading part in House of Gucci, based on UK bookies predictions.

Those Oscars 2022 betting odds may sound high, but the competition becomes closer when one considers that’s the second-lowest price of any candidate currently in the running for the Best Actress prize.

House of Gucci won’t be released in the United States until November 24. However, early looks at the work have many of the belief that if there were a role made for Gaga, it was that of Patrizia Reggiani in director Ridley Scott’s latest blockbuster:

The bookmakers believe Gaga’s greatest obstacle to Best Actress is one Kristen Stewart, who commands the lead as a 4/9 frontrunner for the award as things stand. But a lot can change between now and March 27, when the spotlight will once again fall on Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

Stewart has never received an Oscar nomination to date in her still-budding career, but that looks all but certain to change following her portrayal of Diana, the late Princess of Wales, in Spencer.

Both roles are based on real-life characters and actual events, but the more ‘serious’ subject matter in Spencer could grant Stewart an edge (when it comes to cinematic awards, comedy generally misses the mark).

But then again, House of Gucci is hardly without serious tones, given that it’s based on Reggiani’s successful plot to have husband Maurizio Gucci—played by the terrific Adam Driver—murdered.

Spencer is a British tragedy of epic proportions, which covers a beloved former member of the Royal Family at a time not long before her highly publicised death.

By contrast, House of Gucci deals with its own tragedy in a more light-hearted manner, though trust us when we say Gaga herself still has plenty of room to explore her more serious side.

It may not prove enough to bring home a Best Actress award on this occasion given the competition, which is a shame considering Gaga may never be better-suited for an acting role.
