My follow-up topic from yesterday is since 1994, a few actors earned Oscar nominations for their performances without getting recognition from the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild.
1994: Nigel Hawthorne (“The Madness of King George”), Winona Ryder (“Little Women”), Paul Scofield (“Quiz Show”)
1995: James Cromwell (“Babe”), Massimo Troisi (“Il Postino”)
1996: Armin Mueller-Stahl (“Shine”)
1997: Robert Forster (“Jackie Brown”)
1998: Edward Norton (“American History X”)
1999: Toni Collette (“The Sixth Sense”)
2000: Ed Harris (“Pollock”), Marcia Gay Harden (“Pollock”)
2003: Shohreh Agdashloo (“House of Sand and Fog”), Djimon Hounsou (“In America”), Samantha Morton (“In America”)
2004: Alan Alda (“The Aviator”), Clint Eastwood (“Million Dollar Baby”)
2005: William Hurt (“A History of Violence”)
2007: Tommy Lee Jones (“In the Valley of Elah”), Laura Linney (“The Savages”)
2008: Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”)
2009: Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Crazy Heart”)
2010: Javier Bardem (“Biutiful”)
2011: Gary Oldman (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”), Max von Sydow (“Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”)
Any thoughts on these people getting the nomination without some other recognition?January 31, 2012 at 7:10 am #53784
The only winner..MARCIA GAY HARDEN for Pollack.
Put in supporting for the easy win….Ed Harris and the
studio campaigned hard for her..
Very difficult to do that feat…
I dont expect OLDMAN to win.
VON SYDOW is another thing….he can do it!!January 31, 2012 at 7:23 am #53785
I gotta say, those are not that really surprising.
The only real shock in that list continues to be Laura Linney and to some extent Gary Oldman. Something people thought was a given failed to be recognized everywhere including the Globes where Hoffman did get a nomination for The Savages and those four big nominations at the Spirit Awards. And then…nothing, until that very last moment.
Sort of like Gary Oldman this year. Having said that, neither one of those performances scream “awards”, even if they were heavily talked about and predicted when they first showed up in the race.
And some movies carried on their actors to nominations others obviously didn’t care about like Cromwell, Alda, probably Jones thanks to No Country, and of course those who failed to get recognition because nominations come out in december and don’t enjoy the post opening or post critics award buzz: Agdashloo, Harden, Harris, Hurt…
And then there’s Maggie Gyllenhaal, a mistake only the Oscars made, instead of noticing when others like the Globes were recognizing her for Sherrybaby and Secretary.January 31, 2012 at 8:12 am #53786
Javier Bardem deserved his nomination…
Shohreh should have won the oscar I don’t care what anyone says.Her performance in House of Sand and Fog was the best supporting female performance of that decade imo.February 1, 2012 at 4:06 pm #53787
AAO, I think Oldman has a chance. Let’s say the voters haven’t decided who to vote for between Clooney and Dujardin, maybe Pitt, and then the BAFTAs come around and Oldman wins, which I think he will. He we have a respected veteran who is Oscar-less (Pitt isn’t a veteran, BTW) and is in a film that the voters clearly enjoyed. I think we could have a real upset on our hands come February.
