    Which Oscar trends have started/are supported/have been ended by this year’s Oscars. Obviously right now we are only working with nominations, we can return to this thread after the ceremony.

    Bennett Miller films have gone 3 for 3 in the lead and supporting acting categories.

    The success of films released before the fall (Grand Budapest, Boyhood) bucks what seems like a trend toward late releases. The LEGO movie doesn’t support that, but it seems like that is less about the release date itself and more about the film itself.

    Mr. Turner is the first Mike Leigh film since All or Nothing (2002) not to be nominated for Best Original Screenplay. Vera Drake (2004), Happy-Go-Lucky (2008), and Another Year (2010) were all able to earn him recognition. 

    Obviously, we’ve previously brought up Bradley Cooper. This is his third consecutive acting nomination, making him the first person to be nominated for acting three years in a row since Renee Zelwegger (2001-2003), and the first male since Russell Crowe (1999-2001). Amy Adams would have joined him in that feat if she had pulled a nomination for Big Eyes. Each of his acting nominations also came for films nominated for Best Picture. 

    Speaking of people in BP nominees, this is the first year since 2010 where neither Jonah Hill nor Chris Pratt were in a Best Picture contender. 

    With The Boxtrolls, Laika can claim that they’ve gone 3 for 3 in getting into Animated Feature, having previously done Coraline and ParaNorman. 

    As far as tradition goes, this is the first time that a Hobbit movie didn’t get into Best Visual Effects. Interestingly enough, this exact fate befell the Star Wars franchise, which earned nominations for every film except for the sixth (Revenge of the Sith).

    Its likely to be the first year since 1997 where none of the acting winners played a real person

    Which is especially interesting because Keaton is the only one in his category who doesn’t. On a similar vein, the past three years have all had a previous Oscar winner win an acting award, and that doesn’t seem like the case this year.

    Although Gone Girl did not do well overall at the Oscars it did mark the fourth film in a row for Fincher where his leading actor or actress received an acting nomination (Gone Girl, Dragon Tattoo, Social Network, Benjamin Button). I can’t remember the last time that has happened and I couldn’t find any other examples of this from the past 15-20 years.

    I can’t remember the last time four out of five of the nominees in a Lead Actor or Actress category was a first-time nominee (if David Oyelowo had been nominated, it would have been 5 out of 5).

    ^9 years ago! Very interesting… how I wish Heath Ledger had been the winner for 2005!

    Just wondering: when was the last time all the nominees in a Lead acting category were all first time nominees?

    I haven’t seen a performance like Hoffman’s 2005 Capote since that year or even some years back, just thought I should put it out there, you know you said you WISH ledger would’ve won, but he had his masterpiece with Batman, Hoffman gave the best performance by a lead actor in a drama I’ve ever seen on the last 20 years or so.

    ^ I actually preferred Toby Jones in the other Truman Capote movie (released in 2006; I am blanking out on the name of the film at the moment). Hoffman was very good but Ledger moved me like no other! (:
