    A lot of people (Experts, journalists, bloggers, insiders…) are currently developing a new fever: The obsession with Oscar’s past. I don’t know if they’re doing what it’s supposed to be a status quo of the industry or if they are just dumb and can’t look to the future with relaxing attitude.

    Sometimes they want to predict what it’s logical, a repetition according to industry’s standards. That’s why I can see why they predict a specific kind of actors and directors (For example, big names in the industry, like O. Russell, whose success with actors can make him a “modern day William Wyler”). The same can be said of a typical kind of role, specifically designed to win awards (Possessive mothers, drunk guys, disabled persons, physical and transformative performances…).

    However, I disagree with those predictors when they claim what’s supposed to be a stupidity. For example, Katharine Hepburn’s 4 Oscars. She surely was the finest actress ever (Others will say it is Meryl Streep) but, as far as I’m concerned, Meryl still has a long future and could win a 4th one. Or even a 5th one. Some people say “Meryl won’t win a fourth because Katharine has 4 and no one can top Katharine”. This kind of sentences make predictors foolish persons who don’t understand that some people died before the Oscars celebrated, I don’t know, 50 years of existance. Other people, having been born with the Oscars pretty much consolidated, can have more success. Take a look at Jennifer Lawrence. Having won at 22, she can perfectly score 3 wins if she lives until 70s or 80s!!! What do you think about this idea? Not the Meryl/Jennifer one, but the other about aging in the industry business and the fact that Oscars are almost 100 years old.

    But, hey, if you want to SPECIFICALLY PREDICT people, you can do it here, too.

    I don’t think that the older ones you mentioned, like Nicholson, Rush or Close will have another win in a competitive category. They can get honorary oscars, and probably will. There is definitely something to the aging in the industry idea. I think that there are many actors and actresses in their 40s and 50s with decades of experience who can win because of their experience. Gary Oldman, Annette Bening, Viola Davis and Julianne Moore all have good chances at victory in the future.

    Seabel, I’ve read your opening post several times, and I’m not sure what you’re specifically getting at. Reading it again wont help.

    Aging in the industry?

    I think I’ll take the most altruistic route and say… Emmanuelle Riva, Gloria Stuart, June Squibb, Christopher Plummer, Clint Eastwood, Woody Allen, and a host of others who have been in the business before most of us here were born, havent been buried or handcuffed by “stupidity” or conventional fetters.

    As for predicting future winners. LOL! It’s hard enough figuring out who’s going to ‘win’ this year.

    Scarlett Johansson has always caught me as an Oscar waiting to happen. An incredibly talented, good-looking, well-known and popular actress with credibility thanks to wins from the Tonys and BAFTAs, as soon as she gets the right combination of film/role + performance + timing I can see her easily taking the Oscar.

    Among previous winners, I would say Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet and Angelina Jolie (whether as an actress or director) are certain to win again. Natalie Portman, Marion Cotillard, Sean Penn, Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Morgan Freeman, Charlize Theron and Hilary Swank could all do it again, but I wouldn’t say certainly.

    If Jack Nicholson, Gene Hackman, Ellen Burstyn, Al Pacino, Duston Hoffman, Shirley MacLaine and Robert Duvall all have one final performance left in them, I could see them at least being major threats.

    I’m not sure what you’re trying to say either in the original post.  My take is that the media, critics and bloggers, have a great influence on the race.  The critics in fact push certain people before their films have even been seen.  Two recent examples: Meryl Streep got near universal acclaim for Iron Lady because so many people wanted to see her win the third Oscar.  Then, once it happened, the steak knives were out for August: Osage County, by many of the same critics who praised Iron Lady as the best performance of the year (Richard Corliss, for instance).  When someone’s on that upward trajectory, the press likes to be predictory.  Same for David O. Russell this past year, with American Hustle taking the NYFCC best film award; critics know he’s a “hot” filmmaker, his “time” is coming, and want to be out in front for a potential Oscar win so they looked important for impacting the final result.  Why else do critics awards begin at the end of November now, with dates creeping forward by the year?  Many bloggers think they are helping the Academy voters by highlighting standout work (or calling every major release that doesn’t need publicity a great success), but in effect they are limiting the field and many deserving films that are on the fringes.

    I think one way things have changed over the years is that big box office stars now have a chance to win an Oscar. In this social media-/publicity-driven awards season, we’ve seen stars win who probably wouldn’t have two decades or so ago.  Narrative drives wins more strongly than ever before.  So next year, whoever can capture that, whether through their personal lives, career choices, unexpected roles, taking on more responsibilities, transforming physically or mentally, will be heavily favored to win.

    Tye Sheridan has an oscar in his future, so does Dany Dehaan, if nothing ordinary happens.

    What I say about aging is that if someone started his/her career in 1900 and ended it in 1950 it could mean that he/she could only win 1 or 2 academy awards.

    People saying that people like Streep won’t win again because Hepburn won 4 times don’t make sense to me. Meryl Streep is on fire right now and she will always be, and she is not SO OLD so she can’t win again.

    Sorry I’m focusing too much on Streep, but I hope you understand the example.

    Anyway, this is predicting the future, and… Who knows about the future????

    Oh, I see (sort of. Lol). That gives the players roughly two decades to win Oscars. One example I can think of is Walt Disney. I think the guy won around fifty before 1950,or there abouts. And a dozen more afterwards.  Of course there were multiple winners then as well. Looking at post 1950, it strikes me that although the players have had much more time to ‘win’, there are many others who have never won. Other than chances due to time, I’m not convinced it has much to do with when.

    The players have changed but the politics remain the same. We’re simply too complex to pigeon-hole. Why anyone votes the way they do is as individual as the voter. Sigh.

    I’d say, as long as the “spread the wealth” marxists dont dominate, Streep can easily win a fourth. What the heck does Hepburn have with this equation, other than fanboyism for or against?

    Btw, why do you think Oscar is “pretty much consolidated” where Jennifer Lawrence is concerned? Poor gal. She’s a kid and she’s already hated, by some. I wonder what she’s done to deserve that, other than be more successful than other peoples personal favorites? (sparkspark)

    I’ve said it for years, but I firmly believe Anna Faris has an Oscar-winning performance in her.  In a Woody Allen film, maybe?

    Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl! (just kidding this is just my fanboyness talking). I firmly believe that Jessica Chastain and Dane DeHaan will get oscars very soon. I can totally see Dane as a co-lead in a PTA movie.

    Tye Sheridan – this kid is extraordinary. More than held his own against McConaughey in Mud and Cage in Joe. I read a couple of interviews with him over the past week. Very, very smart and level-headed. With good choices of roles, he’ll be the next big thing.

    Dane DeHaan, Andrew Garfield, Felicity Jones, and Emma Stone are Oscar winners waiting to happen when they get the right role. (Yes, I am aware that I just listed out the young cast of ASM2.)

    I am still mortified that Scarlet Johansson is still not an Oscar nominee (She should’ve been nominated in 2003) I hope her and Elizabeth Olsen win in the future too.
