    Critics often like to awards actors who give multiple eligible performances for the price of one, like how Jessica Chastain in 2011 had about a half-dozen Supporting Actress roles and Michael Fassbender had a handful of Lead Actor roles.

    That could help Chastain again this year. She could named Best Supporting Actress for “Interstellar” and “A Most Violent Year” (and possible, but less likely Best Actress notices for “Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” and “Miss Julie”) And maybe Tilda Swinton could surprise with critics prizes for “Snowpiercer” along with her small role in “Grand Budapest Hotel.”

    What other actors have strength in numbers?

    David Oyelowo is in Interstellar & A Most Violent Year in small roles, and he has the role which will/should get him a Lead Actor nom in Selma, giving him a good presence in a few award contending films.

    Tilda has 4 this year: Grand Budapest, Snowpiercer, The Zero Theorem, and Only Lovers Left Alive 
    John Lithgow: Interstellar, Love is Strange
    Meryl Streep: Into the Woods, The Homesman
    Ansel Elgort: Men, Women, and Children, The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent (though it wouldn’t help his chances)

    Remember, to get a multi-film critics award, the actor’s performances all have to remotely fit into the same category – so Reese Witherspoon won’t win best actress for both Wild and Inherent Vice for instance, and Keira Knightley won’t win supporting actress for Imitation Game, Laggies and Begin Again. 

    I think the likeliest candidates for multi-film wins are Julianne Moore for Still Alice and Maps to the Stars only, and possibly Marion Cotillard for The Immigrant and 2 Days, 1 Night (though I wouldn’t be surprised to see her win something like LAFCA exclusively for the latter).

    I agree Marion Cotillard and Julianne Moore are the clearest choices this year for dual acting honors.
    I haven’t seen Still Alice but she’s fantastic and funny in Maps to the Stars, one of her bravest roles.

    The problem with Maps to the Stars, is that it was already announced that they wouldn’t be doing an Oscar campaign. I agree that it helps her for Still Alice, but she won’t get nominated twice.

    Jack O’Connell has praised turns in Starred Up and ’71 in addition to Unbroken should secure him a lion’s share of breakthrough actor prizes.
