    Anyone remember….Was that the only time all 5 Best nominees were past winners? I’m sure we discussed this back then but I forget the conclusion. Looking thru the lists of acting nominees nothing jumps out at me as a similar situation. How about other areas?

    In an acting category, yes. I believe we found one case or more in other categories (director IIRC)

    I have another question – why did almost everyone predict DeNiro instead of Waltz? Just because he cried on Katie Couric? This whole “DeNiro is winning!” craze happened after he lost SAG, which should have been an easy get for him. Even when Waltz won BAFTA, where DeNiro was snubbed, pundits insisted DeNiro despite him winning absolutley nothing for a rather small role that was no stretch outside his comfort zone. Plus, he already had two Oscars. I predicted Waltz as soon as I saw Django, so it just goes to show what these “experts” know.

    There was no consensus for DeNiro or anyone else in this category. All five candidates had a near equal chance to win, and the voting was likely very close. Some people might have said DeNiro was the favorite, but that would have been mainly because of his association with SLP. Many people predicted Waltz, which was also a reasonable prediction. But he had won more recently than Arkin (also a serious contender). He won mainly because he had a lead, dominant role and benefited from category fraud.

    Last year I thought anyone but Arkin had a chance (seriously, he’s barely in Argo, the spot should’ve went to DiCaprio) but narrowed it down to Waltz and Jones. I ultimately went with Waltz the day of since he won the Golden Globe
