    Here is an article I wrote for Gold Derby this week. Only four people in Academy Awards history have won 3 acting Oscars: Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, Ingrid Bergman, and Walter Brennan (Katharine Hepburn won 4).

    Now, all of sudden for this year’s ceremony, four other people are in position to join this group: Daniel Day-Lewis (who has the best chance), Denzel Washington, Sally Field, and Robert De Niro.

    If Day-Lewis wins, he becomes the first person ever to win 3 times as Best Actor.

    You might want to change it to ‘actors’, not ‘people’.. It isn’t remotely uncommon to have 3-time Academy Award winners.. LA: I’d flip Field and DeNiro. Nevermind Boomer, I just re-read it!

    He specifies in the acting categories, though.

    I agree, dannyboy, I would also flip Field and DeNiro.  DeNiro has a lot of respect among the Academy membership, though his lack of quality ouput for many years will hurt him in the eyes of some voters.  Field I would argue doesn’t fully disappear into her character…I think many people see the Sally Field we all know in this film more than a fully formed and distinct character.  Plus she’s not quite at the level where I think people would want to award her again.

    I’m cautiously optiministic regarding Daniel Day-Lewis.  Yes, it would be amazing to see him win a third Oscar, but I’m not sure whether voters know this would be a landmark award.  If they do, and we won’t know until Oscar night, I think Hugh Jackman will win and it’ll be the shock of the evening.  I also think for some people the whole Daniel Day-Lewis serious method actor schtick is getting old, hence the jokes at the Golden Globes, and they may want to vote for someone else.  But who knows?  Right now, it’s looking very likely we will see Oscar history deservedly made—and what’s perhaps more noticeable, three wins of very high caliber performances that were all the best of their years.  Vivien Leigh is probably the only other actor, maybe Jodie Foster, where the Academy got the wins for the right roles for the actor’s career.

    I’m on team Sally Field- I thought she was brilliant in her role, and worked Kushner’s dialogue to her favor, fully getting into the zone. I know she’s a longshot to win, but she would be quite deserving.

    Daniel Day-Lewis has a great shot at winning the Oscar. If he loses, it better be to Joaquin Phoenix because nobody else deserves to have bragging rights that they trumped the best transformation of Abraham Lincoln to date. How embarassing would Bradley Cooper feel walking up to people years from now, “Hi- you know I won an Oscar for best actor for Silver Linings.” “Who’d you beat?” “Daniel Day-Lewis in Lincoln.” Can you imagine- the looks of horror?

    Well well. It’s interesting how DDL will likely win his third, for “mimicking” a real person, since so many knives come out for anyone who dares to do this.
    His “Lincoln” is remarkable, and I cant see anyone defeating him in this category. And especially if, the film itself stumbles along the way. The ‘clear favorite for BP’ has some roadblocks in it’s way.

    No one here, of course, has said Day-Lewis mimics Lincoln – because among other things, since there is no film or audio recording of him, it is 100% impossible to mimic him. We have no real idea of what his voice was like or what his physical presence was.

    This for me was one of his more bearable performances. In actuality, I’d much rather have him win than Cooper (OK) and Jackman (horribly misdirected and unwatchable for me). Not thrilled about his getting a third Oscar, but his winning won’t cause me a moment of unease. Not that I’ve ever indicated anything to the contrary.

    Whose your favorite in Best Actor sean? Is it Phoenix- just curious.

    BTW- Jean-Louis Trintignant deserves just as much, if not more, recognition as Riva for his performance as the husband in Amour– that is a HAUNTING performance, and anyone who watches his (SPOILER———————) final talk to his wife before ‘that scene’ knows what I mean; it’s shockingly powerful.

    Trintignant and Denis Lavant would have been my choices, then Philip Seymour Hoffman (but only in this category, not supporting), then Washington and Phoenix. Also fond of Matthew McConaughney in Killer Joe.

    What about you apart from J-L T?

    He’ll win it easily, and among the nominees, deservingly so.

    De Niro could very well do it. DDL definitely will.

    I don’t mind Day Lewis winning, but it’d be my favorite upset in years if Phoenix were to snatch it.

    Daniel Day-Lewis is the only one that’s going to reach this acting milestone next month, I think. It’ll be a much deserved recognition when/if it happens for him.
