This could happen with Birdman. Seems like an odd situation. I know it happened with A Beautiful Mind (but Crowe had just won the year before.)
Did it happen any other times? (I know I could look this up but I thought this would be more fun.)February 9, 2015 at 7:16 pm #177721
The Hurt Locker, Jeremy Renner; The Departed, Mark Wahlberg; Titanic, Kate Winslet, Gloria Stuart.February 9, 2015 at 7:16 pm #177722
The Hurt Locker won 6 categories in writing, direcitng, sound mixing, sound editing, film editing, and best picture, but Jeremy Renner could not beat Jeff Bridges in the crapfest of “Crazyheart”.February 9, 2015 at 7:19 pm #177723
I guess I meant films where there is very clearly one star. Titanic has two. Hurt Locker sort of works but I wouldn’t say Renner is the sole lead in that film.February 9, 2015 at 7:19 pm #177724
Kate Winselt- Titantic
Ralph Fiennes and Kristen Scott Thomas- The English Patient
Kevin Costner- Dances with Wolves
Liam Neeson- Schindler’s List
That’s it that’s all I got.February 9, 2015 at 7:25 pm #177725
Crash – Matt Dillon. Schindler’s List – Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes.February 9, 2015 at 7:31 pm #177726
How many Best Picture winners have at least 3 acting nominations, but no acting wins? Dances with Wolves is the latest one.February 9, 2015 at 7:39 pm #177727
All About Eve – Bette Davis
Gentleman’s Agreement – Gregory Peck
Lawrence of Arabia – Peter O’Toole
Tom Jones – Albert Finney
Sound of Music – Julie Andrews
Rocky – Sylvester Stallone
Godfather Part II, 12 Years a Slave, Unforgiven, Chicago and The Deer Hunter and some of the above won supporting awards, but their sole leads (as I see them) went home empty-handedFebruary 9, 2015 at 7:57 pm #177728
Casablanca won both+ and both Bogart and Rains lost. I’d say Bogart qualifies as the “main” star although, Ingrid Bergman rocketed to stardom after this.
There’s Lawrence of Arabia, which cleaned up, except for the great Peter O’Toole.
Tony Richardson won both for Tom Jones, but all the actors lost, and especially the great, Albert Finney, definitely the star.
I’m not sure there was a particular star in Oliver!, but it too won both and both nominated actors lost.
Schlesinger won both for Midnight Cowboy, but who was the star of that? They both lost.
The Sting did the same, and Robert Redford, arguably the ‘star’, lost.
Ditto for The Godfather 2.
Out of Africa
The others are already mentioned. Some of these are ensembles, but what the heck.February 9, 2015 at 10:15 pm #177729
Unrelated question but Godfather II was mentioned….
What was the buzz at the time as to why Pacino lost and why John Cazale and Diane Keaton weren’t nominated?February 9, 2015 at 10:20 pm #177730
I really don’t understand the Cazale snub. Three supporting actor nominees from the film and none were him? De Niro makes sense (as a winner too) and the others were great, but better than Cazale? Nah. And Talia Shire got nommed and Keaton didn’t? Strange stuff.February 9, 2015 at 10:38 pm #177731
Inspired by 24Emmy’s question, I decided to look up what BP winners had 3+ acting nominees (without winning any of them), and I found 7 films in all.

Mutiny on the Bounty (3 Actor)
