    New York Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics, National Society, and National Baord of Review.

    Can we make a list? So far I just have Sally Field in Norma Rae and Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice.

    The NBR awards are a joke. They aren’t even film critics. Below is the list of actors/actresses that have won all three major awards (LA, New York & NSFC). I have placed a * for those that also won the NBR:

    Lead Wins

    Dustin Hoffman, Kramer vs Kramer
    Burt Lancaster, Atlantic City
    Bob Hoskins, Mona Lisa
    Daniel Day Lewis, My Left Foot
    Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas*
    Bill Murray, Lost in Translation
    Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland*
    Daniel Day Lewis, There Will Be Blood
    Sean Penn, Milk
    Sissy Spacek, Coal Miner’s Daughter*
    Michelle Pfieffer, The Fabulous Baker Boys*
    Emma Thompson, Howard’s End*
    Holly Hunter, The Piano*
    Imelda Staunton, Vera Drake
    Helen Mirren, The Queen*
    Sally Hawkins, Happy-Go-Lucky

    Supporting Wins

    Jack Nicholson, Terms of Endearment*
    Morgan Freeman, Street Smart
    Gene Hackman, Unforgiven
    Martin Landau, Ed Wood
    Burt Reynolds, Boogie Nights
    Bill Murray, Rushmore
    Christoph Waltz, Inglorious Basterds
    Meryl Streep,Kramer vs Kramer & The Seductions of Joe Tynan
    Mary Steenburgen, Melvin and Howard
    Angelica Huston, Prizzi’s Honor*
    Dianne Wiest, Bullets over Broadway
    Virginia Madsen, Sideways
    Mo’Nique, Precious
    Jessica Chastain, The Help, Take Shelter & Tree of Life

    So if you look at the four the only actors (taking into consideration that LA didn’t begin until the mid 70’s) to have won all four for the same performance are:

    Nicolas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas
    Forest Whitaker, The Last King of Scotland
    Sally Field, Norma Rae
    Sissy Spacek, Coal Miner’s Daughter
    Meryl Streep, Sophie’s Choice
    Michelle Pfieffer, The Fabulous Baker Boys
    Emma Thompson, Howard’s End
    Holly Hunter, The Piano
    Helen Mirren, The Queen
    Meryl Streep, Kramer vs Kramer & The Seduction of Joe Tynan
    Jack Nicholson, Terms of Endearment
    Angelica Huston, Prizzi’s Honor

    Poor Michelle Pfeiffer is the only one not to go onto an Oscar win, though she did share one of her best actress prizes with Jessica Tandy.

    Thanks Aunt Peg!  (One addition though Meryl swept all 4 for Kramer Versus Kramer too.)

    Thanks for you that pickup Robert.

    That also makes Meryl Streep the only actor/actress to have won all 4 twice!

    Of special note:  Meryl’s wins in these groups included MANHATTAN as well, except for New York that went only for Kramer vs Kramer and The Seduction of Joe Tynan.

    On the Natl. Board of Review…I think they are as relevant as any of the official film critics groups, just because a film critic is published doesn’t mean that he or she’s opinion is more important…that’s my opinion anyway.  I can see the case for an argument opposing mine though. The board has certainly made some boring choices over the years (the same can be said for New York…good grief!)  But they have also made some interesting and sometimes brave choices as well.

    Poor Sally Hawkins. Such a refreshing performance. Very tough category during that year’s Oscars. I wouldn’t have replaced any of the actual nominees (I thought maybe Melissa Leo…until I actually saw the movie.)

    Thanks for compiling the list! I’ve always been curious. 

    Just a minor thing, Sophie’s Choice wasn’t listed on the ‘lead’ list but is listed as having won all four? It did win all 4 correct?

    You should’ve mentioned the Kansas City Film Critics Circle awards as well.

    Never understood the love for Sally Hawkins in Happy Go Lucky. I hated the move and her annoying quirky performance. That seemed to be critic’s baby that year but all the guilds and acting branches said NO NO NO. She was not even nominated for a BAFTA for Best Actress along with SAG and Oscars not embracing her.

    I thought Sally Hawkins was easily better than some of the other nominees. Hathaway and Hawkins were the top two performances that year, imo. Hawkins should easily have gotten in over Streep, Winslet or Jolie.

    Hawkins was better than the entire line-up of that year. Hawkins, Kristin Scott-Thomas and Michelle Williams snubbed in favor of Angelina Jolie and even Streep was a joke

    Totally disagree. I’m one of those people not charmed but annoyed by her performance. I wouldn’t have minded her being nominated but no way she’s top three for that year’s nominees.
