    ^ since Million Dollar Baby (2004)

    It’s the first year since 1965 that only two DGA nominated directors made the Best Director Oscar lineup.

    1965 DGA + Oscar — Robert Wise, The Sound of Music & John Schlesinger, Darling.
    2012 DGA + Oscar — Ang Lee, Life of Pi & Steven Spielberg, Lincoln

    Surprised the only 2 from DGA happened before
    that means DGA didn’t include Lean/Zhivago

    this is probably the first time a French film was nominated for BP 2 straight years (Amour is French, not Austrian or German)   

    Amazed that this is the first time a film has been nominated for BP, dir, lead acting + sp in 18 years – that used to happen much more often

    I’m quite certain this is the 1st time Canada has competed in foreign language 3 years straight (last year was Monsieur Lazhar and the year before, Incendies), quite remarkable when you consider that most Canadian films are dreadful, and that most Canadians don’t speak a “foreign” language. Most Frogs are relegated to the belle province of Quebec.

    This is the 1st time I believe that a female director nominated previously for best director has had a subsequent film nominated for best pic. Since no female has ever been nominated for best director save for one lonely time, and given the brilliance of Zero Dark Thirty, one can only wonder if many voters weren’t able to see the film, felt they better at least nominate it for best picture, and whatever the reasons, surely had a momentary lack of collective sanity in failing to give Bigelow a richly deserved 2nd.

    Have any of the following ever happened before?

    – Oscar host being an Oscar nominee at the same ceremony
    – 3 acting nominations but otherwise shut out (The Master)
    – a category where all nominees are first-time nominees (aside from very early ceremonies and documentary/short subject categories) (Best Original Song)

    – The first last happened last in 2010 when Jams Franco co-hosted and was nominated for Best Actor for “127 Hours”
    – The second last happened in 2001 when Judi Dench, Kate Winslet and Jim Broadbent (who won) were all nominated for “Iris,” a film which received no other nominations.
    – I’m sure there are other examples of categories where everyone was a first-timer, but none that I can think of off the top of my head.

    The English Canadians (besides The Sweet Hereafter?) are usually bad. The French ones are better.

    A few more:

    – Steven Spielberg has now been nominated for Best Director in five consecutive decades (once in the ’70s, twice in the ’80s, twice in the ’90s, and once in the’00s). I don’t think anyone else has ever accomplished this.
    – Steven Spielberg is now tied with Martin Scorcese, Woody Allen, David Lean, and Fred Zinneman for third place among most nominated directors. Only William Wyler (12) and Billy Wilder (8) have more.
    – “Les Miserables” is only the fourth musical nominated for Best Picture since 1980 (I originally wrote third, but a friend reminded me of “Beauty and the Beast” in 1991. The other two are, of course, “Moulin Rouge” and “Chicago”)
    – “Life of Pi” ties “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of King” and “Hugo” for most nominations (11) without a single acting nomination. Are there others???
    – John Williams receives his 48th nomination for “Lincoln,” continuing his reign as the living person with the most nominations.

    With The Hobbit’s 3 nominations, Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth franchise has now garnered 33 Oscar noms!  The Godfather franchise is second with 29 noms.

    When was the last time there were 4 or less first time nominees out of the 20 acting contenders?

    I’ve been following the Oscars since 1976 and this is the lowest number of first time nomminess in the acting categories (Cooper, Jackson, Riva, Wallis) in all that time.

    Without doing the research, this is probably the first time a film from France has been BP nominated two years in a row.
    It is likely that it is the second time a film from one country two years in a row not from the US or UK has happened (Sweden 72-73). That of course there are more than 5 nominees, and it is uncertain whether Amour would have been nominated with 5.

    Amy Adams, presumptively, is tied for 2nd place with Agnes Moorehead for the most Supporting Actress nominations without a win (4). In addition, she is tied for 2nd place with Ethel Barrymore, Lee Grant, Agnes Moorehead, Geraldine Page, Maggie Smith, and Maureen Stapleton for most Supporting Actress nominations, period (4). Only Thelma Ritter (6) is ahead of Adams in both cases. 

    Lastly, Adams is currently the actress with the most nominations for Supporting Actress without winning alive. Of the 7 others listed above, only Maggie Smith remains alive, and she’s won already.

    HUGO also have 11 nominations without a single acting nomination. Hugo wasn’t nominated for Make-Up and Song (even if it was eligible), LIFE OF PI wasn’t nominated for Make Up and Costume Design. LORD OF THE RINGS wasn’t nominated for Cinematography (!!) and Sound Editing (!!!)

    With so many older, esteemed acting nominees, I thought it would be interesting to tally up the number of Best Picture nominees that various actors have been in, although I don’t think any quite reaches a record.

    Robert DeNiro = 8 (Godfather Part II, Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Raging Bull, The Mission, Awakenings, GoodFellas, Silver Linings Playbook)
    Daniel Day-Lewis = 7 (Gandhi, A Room with a View, My Left Foot, In the Name of the Father, Gangs of New York, There Will Be Blood, Lincoln)
    Russell Crowe = 6 (LA Confidential, The Insider, Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, Master & Commander, Les Miserables)
    Leonardo DiCaprio = 6 (Titanic, Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Inception, Django Unchained)
    Tommy Lee Jones = 6 (Love Story, Coal Miner’s Daughter, JFK, The Fugitive, No Country for Old Men, Lincoln)
    Sally Field = 4 (Norma Rae, Places in the Heart, Forrest Gump, Lincoln)
    Ben Affleck = 3 (Good Will Hunting, Shakespeare in Love, Argo)
    Alan Arkin = 3 (The Russians Are Coming The Russians Are Coming, Little Miss Sunshine, Argo)
    Jessica Chastain = 3 (The Help, The Tree of Life, Zero Dark Thirty)
    Victor Garber = 3 (Titanic, Milk, Argo)
    John Goodman = 3 (The Artist, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Argo)
    Samuel L. Jackson = 3 (GoodFellas, Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained)
    Kyle Chandler = 2 (Argo, Zero Dark Thirty)
    Walton Goggins = 2 (Django Unchained, Lincoln)
    John Hawkes = 2 (Winter’s Bone, Lincoln)
    Jennifer Lawrence = 2 (Winter’s Bone, Silver Linings Playbook)
    Christoph Waltz = 2 (Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained)

    Other Fun Fact:
    – Despite 6 acting nominations and 2 wins, Denzel Washington has never performed in a Best Picture nominee
