If you saw both, which do you think is better?
Has anyone else ever had Comedy and Drama nominations in the same year?December 11, 2014 at 10:18 pm #169142
Have yet to see Maps to the Stars.
Streep had comedy and drama nods in 2008 for Doubt and Mamma MiaDecember 11, 2014 at 10:21 pm #169143
Saw both, but:
1) they are completely different kinds of films — they can’t be more different, tbh
2) Moore’s performances in them are completely different (she has a more funish vibe in Maps to the Stars, which is a dark comedy)
I’d say she takes Drama Actress, and Amy Adams takes Comedy Actress. Wouldn’t be surprised if Moore takes both though, and if she does she deserves both.December 11, 2014 at 10:41 pm #169144
Oddly, in 1950, Judy Holliday’s performance in Born Yesterday appeared to receive nominations in both the Comedy/Musical AND Drama categories, at least according to IMDB. To cap it off, she got a Supporting nod for Adam’s Rib.
Michael Caine was nominated in both for Gambit and Alfie in 1966.
In 1993, there was Tom Hanks, who was nominated for both Philadelphia and Sleepless in Seattle.
Nicole Kidman in 2001 for Moulin Rouge! and The Others.
Billy Bob Thornton got 2001 nominations for The Man Who Wasn’t There and Bandits.
Scarlett Johansson in 2003, where she had Lost in Translation and Girl with a Pearl Earring.
Sandra Bullock earned nominations in each category in 2009 for The Blind Side and The Proposal.
Ryan Gosling in 2011 for The Ides of March and Crazy, Stupid, Love.December 11, 2014 at 11:16 pm #169145
Julianne Moore herself pulled it off once before. She’s the first one to do it twice and might be the first person to win both categories on the same night.
Judy Holliday was indeed nominated in both Drama and M/C categories for the same performance on “Born Yesterday”. It was probably all blurry as it was the first year of the split. She lost Drama to Gloria Swanson but won M/C. Film itself was nominated for Best Motion Picture, Drama.
Full list (Drama + M/C)
1. 1958 – Ingrid Bergman: The Inn of the Sixth Happiness + Indiscreet
2. 1967 – Audrey Hepburn: Wait Until Dark + Two for the Road
3. 1977 – Diane Keaton: Looking for Mr. Goodbar + Annie Hall (won for the latter)
4. 1979 – Jill Clayburgh: La Luna + Starting Over
4. 1979 – Marsha Mason: Promises in the Dark + Chapter Two
6. 1986 – Julie Andrews: Duet for One + That’s Life
7. 1999 – Julianne Moore: The End of Affair + An Ideal Husband
8. 2001 – Nicole Kidman: The Others + Moulin Rouge! (won for the latter)
9. 2003 – Scarlett Johansson: Girl with a Pearl Earring + Lost in Translation
10. 2008 – Meryl Streep: Doubt + Mamma Mia!
11. 2009 – Sandra Bullock: The Blind Side + The Proposal (won for the former)
12. 2014 – Julianne Moore: Still Alice + Maps to the Stars
1. 1966 – Michael Caine: Alfie + Gambit
2. 1969 – Dustin Hoffman: Midnight Cowboy + John and Mary
3. 1993 – Tom Hanks: Philadelphia + Sleepless in Seattle (won for the former)
4. 2001 – Billy Bob Thornton: The Man Who Wasn’t There + Bandits
5. 2011 – Ryan Gosling: The Ides of March + Crazy, Stupid, Love.December 12, 2014 at 5:52 am #169146
Both great performances but like
it was said, very different to compare.
“Still Alice” is her
ticket to the Oscars. Her performance is very good (and more oscar friendly
than her previous nominated roles) and also very deserving of a win even when
it’s not the best Moore performance.
“Maps to the Stars” is
a very weird movie and I don’t think it can be considered a comedy even with a laugh or two in there. She
is also borderline supporting and her character is not likeable at all. I think
she is third in this race (After Emily and Amy). The performance is great like
I said, but the character is a nasty bi***, whose “funny” moments come from
very dark situations. She also has limited time and being the frontrunner in
the Drama category makes me think the Globes will choose a more traditional
performance here (I’m feeling Blunt)
She is a extremely talented (and underrewared) actress. So I’ll
not mind at all if the takes both.December 12, 2014 at 2:39 pm #169147
Saw both and I wouldn’t say one performance is better than the other. They are both deserving of the wins and showcase Moore’s impressive range as an actress. I wouldn’t say Moore has a legit shot for Maps To The Stars, but definitely for Still Alice.December 12, 2014 at 4:01 pm #169148
When I saw “Maps to the Stars” I wondered if Moore would be considered supporting for it and lead for “Still Alice”.December 12, 2014 at 4:55 pm #169149
Every comment in this thread (so far) is stellar! Yay!
Agree with everyone. Noting the date now…..Could this be the Best Actress thread??? No. Lol.
Maps is so, Cronenberg. Hard to believe that anyone truly familiar with his early work would be at all surprised by this. Also, I was leery about Alice; turned out to be not so tough to watch.
Fingers crossed for Moore. What does she have to do to be finally honoured by the golden, genitalia-challenged statue?
