Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, and Jessica Lange feel like the natural next in lines.March 31, 2013 at 11:33 am #97284
I think Lange is next to join because AHS has revivied her career and if she does not win for Therese Raquin she will win soon. The next man I see is Hanks. Of the ones I want they include Field and Hoffman. To go futher to 4 time winners all I want is Lewis and Streep who will I think.Marcus Snowden (The Artist Formerly Known as msnowden1)ParticipantMarch 31, 2013 at 11:38 am #97285
I think Hanks is next. He has two Oscar contending movies coming out this year, Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks. Also, he has like a billion Emmys.March 31, 2013 at 12:03 pm #97286
Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and, maybe, Maggie Smith.March 31, 2013 at 1:53 pm #97287
Well, I have a feeling Denzel will step behind the camera like Clint. He already directed Great Debaters.
Does it count if he wins for Director, but not actor again? He will have 3 total Oscars- 2 acting, 1 directing
Christoph Waltz already has 2. He could be the next Walter Brennan and win a 3rd supporting, but I think it won’t be for a while, and I don’t think it’ll be under Tarantino’s direction.
Tom Hanks, surely. He is a well beloved actor and hasn’t won in 18 years. Plus he has 2 big threats this year.
Robert DeNiro if he chooses his projects better.
Hilary Swank if she makes a comeback.

In my humble and probably biased opinion, I feel the next actor to win 3 oscars will be Tom hanks. Other threats include Denzel Washingtn and Sean Penn. I get why people are saying Jessica Lange, but… I’m not sure…
I’d really love it if Dustin Hoffman got another great movie under his belt and won his third oscar. There are a couple of people who could possibly win 3, but I just don’t see it (Jodie Foster, Sally Field & Kevin Spacey).
I’m so sad De Niro’s career has taken a dive in the past 20 years. SLP may have been the best he’s been in those 20 years, but it was still a very problematic movie and he shouldn’t have been nominated.March 31, 2013 at 2:09 pm #97289
Not sure if it’s set in stone yet, but Denzel Washington aims to direct and star in film adaptation of the Broadway play, Fences, for which he won a Tony Award in 2010. This could be his first directing nom and another acting nom.March 31, 2013 at 4:03 pm #97290
Not sure why you say DeNiro shouldn’t have been nominated for SLP. I thought it was one of the best supporting actor performances of the year in one of the best movies of the year and was definitely deserving of a nomination. The speech he gives to his son is so moving and heartfelt. I think he was definitely deserving of a nomination. And most other people do too.March 31, 2013 at 4:21 pm #97291
I think, depending on how much film work she does the rest of her career, Maggie Smith could win again in supporting.March 31, 2013 at 4:27 pm #97292
It’s sweet to see people mentioning Lange. As a fan, I’d like to think she’d be next in line along with a handful of her peers. Here’s hoping!March 31, 2013 at 6:34 pm #97293
I suspect Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan in The Butler may have a chance at number three in 2014. Directed by Lee Daniels, a filmmaker who brings strong performances from woman (Mo’Nique and Sidibe in Precious, and Kidman in Paper Boy), Fonda may have her best material in years. Her second Oscar was awarded over three decades ago. There is no question that she is still Hollywood royalty and that will bring out the voters in recognition of her career.March 31, 2013 at 6:38 pm #97294
I think, depending on how much film work she does the rest of her career, Maggie Smith could win again in supporting.
I can’t really see Smith winning again. Maybe a nomination because she got close this year but not win. Nowadays she kind of just plays the same character in everything. She does a great job, but there’s not much range. She’s doing a great job playing old snooty women with witty one liners but that’s not a very oscar baity role and she never campaigns for herself.April 1, 2013 at 7:05 am #97295

Well, it’s a subjective opinion, of course. And 2012 Supporting actor was PACKED with great performances. From the amazing (should-have-been winner) Philip Seymour Hoffman in The Master. To DiCaprio’s stunningly nuanced performance in Django Unchained (and then the very good but not as great as Inglorious Basterds perf by Waltz). To Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln, one of the best performances and roles of his career. To Ben Whishaw’s and Jim Broadbent’s turns in Cloud Atlas. To Ezra Miller in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. To the standout Andy Serkis in The Hobbit who shines like ten bright suns in his brilliant performance as Gollum. To Jason Clarke in Zero Dark Thirty. To Eddie Redmayne who, despite being in a very poorly directed film, has the best song and the best performance in the whole of Les Miserables.
I’ve listed nine names here who, with varying screentimes, did much more for me than De Niro did in SLP. It’s an opinion of course. That’s all it is…April 1, 2013 at 11:28 am #97296

She’s been doing it for 20 years now. It’s realy disappointing.April 2, 2013 at 5:14 am #97297
Jack Nicholson will win his fourth if he takes a part similar to Robert De Niro’s in Silver Linings Playbook. I actually think Nicholson would have won this year if he had been given that role – DeNiro was excellent in the film, but his acclaimed career had been dead for a few years before SLP came along. Nicholson hasn’t been sharper than he has been in recent years (since 2002, he has had About Schmidt, Something’s Gotta Give and The Departed, all highly acclaimed performances). Yes he has had pratfalls with films such as The Bucket List, but they weren’t career threatening. If Nicholson works with Alexander Payne again, he can receive his fourth Oscar. All he needs is a good character (perhaps the lead character’s father who is a university dean or some high official) and give him some sad problem (drug addiction, alcoholism, cancer?) and the correct timing, he will sweep the awards. And who DOESN’T want to see Jack Nicholson up on the podium every year? He is a pleasure to watch whenever he presents Best Picture, so it would be amazing to see him receiving another statue
The only way Maggie Smith is winning another Oscar is if they make a film adaptation of Downton Abbey. But she won’t even be there to accept it, so the point is moot.
