Which film actress will take home the 2015 Best Actress Oscar at the 87th Academy Awards? There were plenty of great performances and memorable moments from some excellent 2014 movies and these are some of the most talented actresses who starred in this year's Academy Award contending movies.

Will Best Actress front-runners Julianne Moore for Still Alice or Reese Witherspoon for either Wild or The Good Lie take home the 2015 Best Actress Academy Award? Will familiar faces like Amy Adams for Big Eyes, two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank for The Homesman or frequent nominee Jessica Chastain for Interstellar, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby or A Most Violent Year earn Oscar nominations? Can 2014 Best Actress Oscar winner Anne Hathaway repeat for her performance in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar or will rising stars like Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything, Shailene Woodley for The Fault in Our Stars and Emily Blunt in Into the Woods contend for the best actress Oscar? 

Vote on this Oscars 2015 predictions list below for which actress you think will take home the 2015 best actress Oscar and if you think there is a great 2014 actress performance missing, feel free to add it to the list for other movie fans to vote on.
