Emmanuelle Riva has made it a 3-way. It’s officially a 3-way race for Best Actress Oscar. As I’ve mentioned a few times already -- click here and here and here to review -- a few experts had been predicting an Emmanuel Riva “steal” for weeks as they were unconvinced that the Academy felt that strongly about either Jennifer Lawrence or Jessica Chastain.
