    Okay, so it looks like Reykjavik was cancelled, but Big Eyes is getting a Christmas release and very Oscar friendly roles for Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz. I think we will just use this old Christoph Waltz thread to discuss Big Eyes

    I know its odd to create a whole thread for Christoph Waltz

    He’s a two time Oscar-winner actor, it’s not odd at all! 

    Wish him all the best. I like the idea that he’s not american and still won two Oscars. Also, he deserved both!

    He will never, ever win another Oscar, no matter how great an upcoming performance might be.

    I think he is a fantastic actor and can definitely see him winning again. Probably not in the upcoming years though. So Boomer why do you think he will never win an Oscar again?

    Burton must really want an Oscar. Great to see him departing from Depp/Carter regardless. Adams could finally get a lead nomination for it.

    As for Waltz – good for him. Loved him for years now.

    Oh come on……. the oscars will give the oscar to whoever they want. Waltz could win 5 for all we know…….. he has 2 already in just 4 years.

    I don’t doubt he could be a three-time winner at some point. People for example keep mentioning Tom Hanks this year, and his victories were back to back. Of course, Tom might not be nominated altogether, and Waltz might actually never win again, but there’s a good chance he’ll be on the race again at some point, and a decent one he wins a third with a great role when much time has passed since his second. It’s certainly possible.

    I absolutely love Christoph Waltz. His two wins were two of my favorites EVER, and I absolutely think he can win again. He’s extremely talented, and with his upcoming roles in ‘Big Eyes’, ‘Reykjavik’, and ‘The Zero Theorem’, it’s great to see him branching out and in some leading roles. Good for him, and I look forward to each of his upcoming projects.

    Perhaps Christoph Waltz is the Walter Brennan of our time

    The negativity comes from him being a two-time Oscar winner. He got it so easily, for a part no one will remember was awarding winning unless they’re a die hard Oscar person.

    The never again speak is mighty presumptive and frankly absurd. Christoph Waltz is an amazing actor and I have no doubt that he’ll be in the winners circle again someday. Like it has been pointed out many of times in any award shows, voters aren’t really checking for you in in terms of if you have already won. Most are not in the know about things like that like we are.

    I don’t know about that, specifically. I think Boomer made a point in a video several months ago that, unlike Emmy voters, Oscar voters *do* recall who has or hasn’t won before. We’ve certainly seen them give awards to overdue actors before (like Christopher Plummer and Kate Winslet) and one can’t help but wonder if we can attribute Adrien Brody’s win to the fact that everyone else in his category had already won previously (I assume Daniel Day-Lewis would have prevailed if he hadn’t won for My Left Foot). 

    You’re right in a number of cases, of course. We all know that if the voters find that they “like, really, really like” a certain actor or performance, they won’t hesitate to award them a 2nd Oscar in a short amount of time (as seen with Sally Field, Jason Robards, Hilary Swank, etc.,). But the point stands that it will take something *really* special from Waltz to earn a 3rd prize, especially given how another win would put him in a club shared by no more than 6 actors in history (all of whom are regarded as among cinema’s finest).

    It certainly could happen, but I wouldn’t be willing to bet money on it until I got a sense of his competition. If he ends up nominated again, he’d have to be leagues above the rest of the field to prevail (and/or not up against anyone that the Academy feels really needs an Oscar).
