    It came to mind today. I realized that if Best Supporting Actor ends up as some combination of Alan Arkin, Javier Bardem, Robert De Niro, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Tommy Lee Jones, and Christoph Waltz, every nominee will be a previous winner. Given SAG and Globe nominees, that Oscar lineup is certainly a possibility.

    If that has happened before, I’m guessing it’s rare. Heck, even Best Director could come close to that if Steven Spielberg, Kathryn Bigelow, Ang Lee, and Tom Hooper all get in.

    I was just wondering the same thing. Except the fact that everyone would be a previous nominee.
    Same thing as Supporting Actresss; Sally Field, Anne Hathaway, Helen Hunt, Maggie Smith, Amy Adams, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman.
    All Previous nominees/winners. Could possibly happen in Actress as well. Theres no real support for any outside newbies.

    most is 4  – twice for actress, once for actor, also once for director

    nothing close in supporting – quick check showed never more than 2 previous winners, though I might have missed something (never more than three though)

    I think it’d be interesting to see at least one category with four previous winners and one non-winner. People seem to be using that scenario as one that could play in DiCaprio’s favor, but of the three previous occurrences that SF mentions of four previous winners facing off against a non-winner in an acting category, only once has it resulted in a win for the “newbie” (Adrian Brody). It’s a very small sample size, but still – more often than not, a previous winner has won again. There’s still plenty of time to go, but if anybody seems to be getting a nose in front of the Supporting Actor race, it’s (previous winner) Tommy Lee Jones.

    If guessing today, I’d say director Spielberg, Bigelow, Lee, and Affleck – all four of whom have won Oscars (Affleck for writing). Then other candidates among past winners include Mendes, Hooper (neither likely) and Tarantino (writing). The other candidates – Russell and Haneke – have not won.

    Beside 1984 (Field, Spacek, Lange and Redgrave), what is the other year that 4 best actress winners were nominated? And when was the case for director?

    Actress 1982 – but with a caveat I just noticed –   Streep, Spacek, Andrews and Lange – but Lange only because she had won supporting actress by the time the winner in the category was announced (that’s more than a techicality – when she was nominated, there were three previous winners – I didn’t catch that the first time around)

    Director 1959 – Wyler, Zinnemann, Wilder, Stevens – those four directors had 6 directing Oscars among them when they were nominated

    It’s also worth mentioning that Lange’s presumed loss in Lead is seen as a likely factor in her win in Supporting. Not that she’s bad in Tootsie by any means (if anything, she’s underrated), but common consensus seems to be that she wasn’t even the best supporting actress in that movie. And then that gets into the question of whether she would have won for Tootsie if Frances hadn’t come out that year, and if not, who would have won. But that’s a question for another thread…

    And it just occurred to me that if Lange didn’t win for Tootsie in ’82, then the ’84 lineup would have had only three previous winners. But I’ll stop before I bury this thread in hypotheticals.

    Well, not exactly the same but all nominees for best supporting actress in 2001 are now oscar winners

    Jennifer Connelly — A Beautiful Mind {“Alicia Nash”}
      Helen Mirren — Gosford Park {“Mrs. Wilson”}
      Maggie Smith — Gosford Park {“Constance, Countess of Trentham”}
      Marisa Tomei — In the Bedroom {“Natalie Strout”}
      Kate Winslet — Iris {“Young Iris Murdoch”}

     Helen Mirren – The Queen
    Maggie Smith & Marisa Tomei were already a oscar winner at that time and 
    Kate Winslet – The REader

    —-

    We said already BEST ACTOR in 2002 –> all are oscar winners

    and 2006 with best actress

    Penélope Cruz — Volver {“Raimunda”}
      Judi Dench — Notes on a Scandal {“Barbara Covett”}
    * Helen Mirren — The Queen {“The Queen”}
      Meryl Streep — The Devil Wears Prada {“Miranda Priestly”}
      Kate Winslet — Little Children {“Sarah Pierce”}

     

    Is there also for best supporting actor something similar?
