Frances
McDormand

Actor

McDormand wins awards for portraying uncompromising women. She scored an Oscar for 1997’s quirky “Fargo” as a cop determined to catch a killer, then won another in 2018 for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” drawn to the pathos and dark humor in a woman bent on solving her daughter’s murder. There’s also that Emmy she won in 2015 for “Olive Kitteridge” and the Tony in 2011 for “Good People.” Offscreen, she has proven herself just as outspoken as her characters, using her time at the Oscar podium to advocate for diversity and push for inclusion riders — and sending thousands to Google what those are. Want more proof she’s a tough, authoritative, occasionally intimidating presence? She plays the voice of God in Amazon’s 2019 “Good Omens.”
