    There was a previous thread on Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, 2013)  VS. Julianne Moore (Still Alice, 2014) showdown.

    What were the other interesting 2 Consecutive Years Same Oscar Category Winners Showdown worth highlighting and who you think would WIN ???

    Limit it to 2 Consecutive Years as a 1 year time gap would make it a more interesting dynamics.

    Who would WIN between Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, 2012) VS. Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine, 2013) ???

    What ELSE in other Oscar Categories ???

    Etchie , I know that we are allowed all sorts of discussions here but I think I can see this become how Jennifer shouldn’t have won thread.Since you were doing “Same Oscar
    Category Winners Showdown worth
    highlighting
    “, I suggest u rather change this to Mirren vs Cotillard , or Bridges vs Firth.

    Beg your pardon, this thread is not “All About JLaw”.

    JLaw only had one (1) Oscar, so she has only two (2) showdowns to contend with, that is, Before with Streep for The Iron Lady and After with Blanchett for Blue Jasmine.

    This is really a Before & After Oscar Winners Showdown and your suggestion of Mirren VS Cotillard and Bridges VS Firth are both VALID. 

    Say more about it  …..

    Neither were my personal winner (that would be Wallis and Bullock, yea I said it), but I’d definitely say Blanchett

    I think a good way of doing this Etchie, would be to list any matchups that people suggest in your Original post so everyone can comment on as many as they want. It could be a fun thread. I’ll throw in a suggestion for a battle of the Hanks. His performance in Philadelphia vs his performance in Forrest Gump.

    Of the ones mentioned so far, I would pick Moore over Blanchett over Lawrence, Firth over Bridges and Cotillard over Mirren by a very narrow margin. I loved Blanchett’s performance, but Moore was just perfect and while I liked Lawrence’s performance, she’s up against juggernauts. Bridges was pretty mediocre in his performance compared to a brilliant Firth. Cotillard and Mirren were both amazing, so it’s a bit of a coin toss.

    This is not limited to Acting Categories alone.  It could be for Techs like Directing, Screenplay, Cinematography, Original Score, etc … 

    Also, for Best Picture.

    It would be interesting to know & hear more “Vintage Oscar Showdowns” possibly from Aunt Peg, Robert Pius, Ben Braddock, Babypook, Carol Channing, etc …

    Winner: Ang Lee, Brokeback Mountain 

    DISAGREE. 

    No IFs & BUTs …. The Departed was the perfect vehicle & film to award Scorsese his “long overdue” 1st Oscar.

    Ah Etch, sweetie. I’d love to participate, but the truth is, I am confused by this thread.
