I watched The Iron Lady this weekend and was blown away by Meryl’s performance. It made me think that she’d have three oscars on her mantle which is rare. Only 4 performers have won more than 2 oscars.
Katharine Hepburn has 4
Jack Nicholson has 3
Walter Brennan has 3
Ingrid Bergman has 3
It is an exclusive club and made me think who will/if anyone will join this club.
I do believe Meryl will join this club eventually. i also think the following list has real potential.
Daniel Day-Lewis (if Lincoln is any good, he could do it next year)
Kate Winslet (she will continue to rack up the nominations)
I am just curious on what you all think.January 22, 2012 at 2:26 pm #52610
Hilary Swank since she is so young.January 22, 2012 at 2:40 pm #52611
Are we talking about just acting?January 22, 2012 at 2:55 pm #52612
Call me a fanboy, but I would LOVE to see Natalie Portman do it, since she’s still young and has Tom’s babe factor.January 22, 2012 at 3:08 pm #52614
Dustin Hoffman and Robert DeNiro, if they start to choose better roles… But I want Streep in that club firstJanuary 22, 2012 at 3:45 pm #52615
Bette Davis made about 100 movies and was nominated 11 times. Not just one or two but DOZENS of iconic performances. She should have more than “just” two Oscars.January 22, 2012 at 3:47 pm #52616
Streep and Maggie Smith should have more than 7 Oscars by now.January 22, 2012 at 3:47 pm #52617
I thought this was about general areas, but apparently the acting obsession has hijacked this thread too…January 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm #52618
I’ll steer this out of acting:
Most people in technical categories repeat very often.January 22, 2012 at 3:51 pm #52619
Stanley Kubrick should have several Oscars. Alfred Hitchcock should have a dozen.January 22, 2012 at 3:59 pm #52620
I think Scorsese should have 2 Directing Oscars by now. One for “Raging Bull” and one for “Goodfellas”.
I think Tarantino could (and should) win a Directing Oscar too (he should’ve won one for “Pulp Fiction”).
By the way, I do hope Tarantino gets another Oscar soon. The man deserves it.January 22, 2012 at 4:14 pm #52621
Streep and Maggie Smith should have more than 7 Oscars by now.
Couldn’t agree more.
Streep: 7 (8)
-Kramer vs. Kramer
-A Cry in the Dark
-The Bridges of Madison County
-The Devil Wears Prada (supporting)
-The Iron Lady (looking into the future)
Smith: 5 (6)
-The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
-Travels with My Aunt
-The Greatest Marigold Hotel (looking further into the future)January 22, 2012 at 9:52 pm #52622
Who I think will join the ‘club’
for the men:
(maybe Denzel, Robert and Dustin)
(maybe Jane Jonda and Jessica Lange, don’t believe in Hilary Swank)
and DiCaprio who will win in mid-40, at 62 or 63 and at 80’s will win a supporting award, yeah it’s in my mind but still happens lol
