Frances
McDormand

McDormand has the career any actor would kill for: a closely guarded personal life, plum roles with interesting characters and four Oscars to back it all up, a number that now exceeds even Meryl Streep and puts McDormand behind only Katharine Hepburn lead actress win record. One of those four statues is for producing, as McDormand became the first performer to win the prize for both acting and producing in the same year when she won the top female accolade for 2021’s “Nomadland.” Next for her are even more personal, yet exciting, independent roles: Lady Macbeth in an adaptation of “The Tragedy of Macbeth” opposite Denzel Washington, directed by husband Joel Coen for a Christmas release, and a co-starring role in female-fronted “Women Talking” from director Sarah Polley alongside Rooney Mara and Claire Foy.
