What actors & actresses do y’all see as the current perennial nominees?
I think Meryl Streep is obvious. I also think Denzel is now too. But I was also thinking Bradley Cooper & Jennifer Lawrence but maybe that trend is over. And based on her back-to-back nominations, Octavia Spencer looks like she is going to be such a nominee as well. Who else is a perennial nominee currently or could very likely become one soon?
John Williams is more of a perennial nominee than any actor, but Streep is the answer you’re looking for.
She’s the most nominated actor of the decade so far, with 5 nominations.
She’s trailed by Lawrence with 4 nominations.
Several people have 3 nominations so far this decade:
I’m not really sure 3 nominations in 8 years counts as “perennial.” Ruffalo and Spencer seem like safe bets for supporting nominations if their films make Best Picture, though.
