    What Academy Award records could we see being broken next year?

    Here are a few:

    • If Emmanuelle Riva (Amour) is nominated for Best Actress, she will become the oldest Best Actress nominee at age 86 (the record is currently held by the late Jessica Tandy at the age of 80). She would be the second oldest overall nominee (Gloria Stuart holds the record currently at the age of 87). Coincedently, her 86th birthday is the day of the 85th Academy Awards. If she wins, she will become the oldest overall winner.
    • This has been mentioned in a previous thread, but this year we can see all four acting categories won by two-time Oscar winners: Daniel Day Lewis in Best Actor, Maggie Smith in Best Actress, Robert De Niro in Best Supporting Actor and Sally Field in Best Supporting Actress
    • If Day-Lewis wins, he will become the only actor to have won all three Academy Awards in the Lead category. Katharine Hepburn is the only Actress to have won all her Academy Awards in the Lead category.
    • If either Day-Lewis or Bill Murray win, they will be the first actors to win by portraying a real president of the United States of America. Both Frank Langella and Anthony Hopkins were nominated for portraying Richard Nixon. James Whitman was nominated for portraying Harry S. Truman in “Give ‘Em Hell, Harry!”.

    If Quvenzhané Wallis is nominated for Best Actress, she’ll become the youngest nominee at age 9 (the record belongs to Keisha Castle-Hughes who was nominated at age 13).

    Raymond Massey in ABE LINCOLN IN ILLINOIS & Alexander Knox in WILSON were also nominated for playing real US presidents.

    If Life of Pi wins Best Picture, it’ll be the first ever BP winner by a non-white director.

    If Quvenzhane Wallis is nominated, she’d be not only the youngest Best Actress nominee, but the youngest person of color to be nominated (the first non-white child actor to be nominated).

    Few young non-white actors have ever been possible contenders. Kevin Hooks (1972’s Sounder) at 14 probably came the closest after earning a GG nod as Most Promising Young Actor – Male for that Best Picture contender. Some can say that Shareeka Epps (2006’s Half Nelson) at 17 was possible, but that was Gosling’s show through and through. Others can argue that Keke Palmer (2005’s Akeelah and the Bee) at 12 came close, but honestly, I’m not sure if that film ever really registered with the Academy. Not even Jaden Smith (2006’s The Pursuit of Happyness) – arguably among the best work ever done by a non-white child actor – at 8 years old could break through playing alongside his father. Ditto 23-y.o. Ice Cube (1991’s Boyz n the Hood).

    Every one of these youthful actors were fabulous! As divisive as Wallis’s performance is, I’m solidly in her corner. I’d love to see her with a nomination, irrespective of her skin colour or age.
