By “enters 2017 Best Actress race”, I mean the word on the street is that McDormand nails it in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Of course it is only March and any guess at an Oscar contender at this point is ridiculous. 
Anyhow, McDermed plays a woman who goes to war against the police in her Missouri town after her daughter is murdered.

Three Billboards doesn’t have a release date yet.
