    Was this done in part because you were curious whether Michelle Williams’ chances would be better this year because she was nominated last year but didn’t win?

    May 25th, 2011

    That was probably in the back of my mind (Williams and David Fincher seem to have chances at back-to-back nominations), but I also thought that it would be interesting and important to see the history.

    Great research and work here, LKMOSCAR! And thank you for compiling this! 

    I’ve been wondering about this, and it’s interesting to see the statistics and get a better grasp on the odds. 

    One thing I’m taking away from this is that if Streep is nominated and loses again this year, she has a pretty decent shot of winning next year if she’s nominated for ‘August: Osage County’, especially after being nominated twice in a row just a few years ago, based on these statistics.

    Osage is not coming out until 2013 at the earliest. At the moment, the film is scheduled to start filming in the second half of next year.

    Something that may also be important is whether or not the nominee had WON prior to their run. I may compile those results as well.

    Another reason why this was important was because it can explain a controversial win. BUtterfield 8 was Elizabeth Taylor’s FOURTH nomination in a row. Outside factors weigh in as well (everyone knows that it was a tough year for her – personally), but I don’t ever remember people saying that it was her fourth consecutive nomination.

    Good job!

    I’ve always wondered if Taylor would still have won in 1960, if it wasn’t for her health scare. Sure, she was also in her fourth straight nomination but Deborah Kerr would also have 4 nominations in 5 years (from 1956-58 then 1960) and she was pretty good in “The Sundowners” (better than Taylor by miles) and the film was well received overall. I know MacLaine was considered the frontrunner and in the eventual Best Picture winner (and is also my personal winner for 1960).

    @Rock- Never underestimate the power of the overdue factor and good will. Unless there’s a performance that is absolutely undeniable, beware the overdue factor.

    noticed that you included Bette Davis and OF HUMAN BONDAGE in your lists (&
    happy that you did, too many people don’t IMO)…if so then you should include
    Paul Muni for a three year run 1935, 1936 & 1937…as Muni’s non nominated
    performance in BLACK FURY placed 2nd in the awards vote.  Also Norma Shearer’s performance in THEIR OWN
    DESIRE was left out of the list.


    are multi year run’s for performers who get into both leading & supporting
    turns…Not included are the two in one year accomplishments by Fay Bainter,
    Barry Fitzgerald, Jessica Lange, Sigourney Weaver, Al Pacino, Holly Hunter,
    Julianne Moore & Jamie Foxx.

    My sense is that two nominations in acting in consecutive years, irrespective of lead or supporting, has nearly the same weight as two in the same category, even though historically and even now supporting nominations are considered much less prestigious than lead.
