Laurie Metcalf has found success in film, on TV and on stage throughout her career. With the Emmy prediction center launching, I started thinking, could Laurie Metcalf get Oscar, Emmy, and Tony nominations all in one year?
Of course, Laurie Metcalf was nominated at this past Academy Awards for Lady Bird, so she has that one covered. Early word is that she is great in the first Broadway production of Edward Albee’s Three Tall Women so that could land her a Tony nomination. She won her first Tony last year in A Doll’s House Part 2. And so far, she is being predicted to return to the Emmys in the revival of Roseanne, for which she won 3 Emmys in the 90s. The revival premieres later this spring so we’ll have to see.
We won’t know if Metcalf achieves this until Emmy nominations, so regardless, I wanted to know if anyone has ever landed all three nominations in one year before? Would Laurie Metcalf be the first if she does? Let me know!
Note: By “One Year” I mean one calendar year (Jan-Dec)
Bob Fosse won all three in 1973 for Cabaret, Liza with a Z, and Pippin.
Glenn Close in 1984: Oscar nod for The Big Chill, Tony nod for The Real Thing, Emmy nod for Something About Amelia. She only won the Tony.
Paul Newman in 2003: Oscar nod for Road to Perdition, Tony nod for Our Town, Emmy nod for Our Town. He didn’t win any of them.
Alan Alda in 2005: Oscar nod for The Aviator, Tony nod for Glengarry Glen Ross, Emmy nod for The West Wing. He didn’t win any of them.
