    So i was thinking what is someone had lost an Oscar, when you think they would have won ?

    For example i think if Jennifer Lawrence hadn’t won for SLP she would have won for American Hustle .

    Had Sandra Bullock lost for the Blind Side she would have beat Cate and won for Gravity

    Had Cate Blanchett lost for Aviator she would have won for Notes on a Scandal

    This is such an interesting thread. And one I think of often.  Here are some thoughts:

    -If Kathy Bates had lost for “Misery”, she probably would’ve won for “Primary Colors”

    -If Sissy Spacek had lost for “Coal Miner’s Daughter” she probably would’ve won for “In the Bedroom”

    -If Jessica Tandy had lost for “Driving Miss Daisy” she probably would’ve won for “Fried Green Tomatoes”.

    -If Denzel Washington had lost for “Training Day” he probably would’ve won for “Fences”.

    -If Russell Crowe had lost for “Gladiator” he probably would’ve won for “A Beautiful Mind” (BAFTA producers be dammed).

    -If Ellen Burstyn had lost for “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” she probably would’ve won for “Requiem for a Dream”

    Honestly, I don’t think Bullock or Lawrence could win for any of their other nominations.

    Cate Blanchett most definitely would’ve won for I’m Not There if she lost the trophy for The Aviator.

    If Natalie Portman lost for Black Swan, she would have won for Jackie.

    – If Meryl had lost for The Iron Lady she could very well have won this year for The Post.

    – I agree that JLaw would’ve won for American Hustle, which she actually almost did, had she lost for Silver Linings Playbook. She would’ve swept the awards season.

    – I agree that Portman would’ve swept with Jackie if she hadn’t won for Black Swan.

    – If Sissy hadn’t won for Coal Miner’s Daughter she would’ve won for The River a few years later.

    – If Judi hadn’t won for Shakespeare in Love she would’ve won for Chocolat a few years later.

    – If PSH hadn’t won for Capote he would’ve won for The Master.

    – If Bridges hadn’t won for Crazy Heart he would’ve won last year for Hell or High Water. Probably campaigned for lead.

    – If George Clooney hadn’t won for Syriana he would’ve campaigned the shit out of either Up in the Air or The Descendants and won.

    Cate Blanchett would have won for Elizabeth, if not for Gwyneth Paltrow.

    Had Sandra Bullock lost for the Blind Side she would have beat Cate and won for Gravity

    Katharine Hepburn herself could have risen from the dead that year, and still wouldn’t beat Cate Blanchett for Blue Jasmine. She was an absolute lock.

    See i think that if bullock hadnt won on her first nomination she would have been even more “deserving” and being up against cate who was gunning for Oscar number 2… also she would have campaigned really fucking hard… IDK

    I agree that Cate Blanchett was a lock for Blue Jasmine. Even if Bullock hadn’t won for The Blind Side, she still would have lost. Blanchett swept that award season. I think the only recent year that Bullock could have won for Gravity was 2015. I think she would have easily beaten Brie Larson.

    I wonder if Short Term 12 had come out after Room if Brie Larson would have been nominated after being fully on the radar

    Sandra Bullock would have still lost for Gravity if she had lost for Blind Side. Sandra Bullock’s performance in Gravity was much stronger than in The Blind Side, but nothing was stopping Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine.

    The biggest reason why Bullock won for the Blind Side was because she didn’t have a Blanchett-like performance she was competing against AND The Blind Side was that year’s mediocre but feel-good movie that Academy members and general audiences really enjoyed watching and thus Bullock carried people’s affection for the film plus her own hard-working, former rom-com actress that nobody hates who made tons of money for Hollywood so we should thank her narrative. The closest competition Bullock had was Meryl Streep for Julie and Julia and she was that movie’s only nomination.

    If Emma Stone had lost for La La Land, I could see her being nominated for Battle of the Sexes.

    If Charlize Theron had lost for Monster, she may have had a shot at winning for North Country.

    If Tom Hanks had lost for both Philadelphia and Forrest Gump, he would have won for Castaway.

    If Diane Keaton had lost for Annie Hall she would have won for Reds.

    If Jodie Foster had lost for The Silence of the Lambs she would have won for Nell

    If Gene Hackman had lost for The French Connection he would have won for Mississippi Burning

    I disagree. Nicknamed Mississippi Whitewashing, the film drew heavy criticism from the black community for its fictionalized account of the civil rights movement. Activists who has played a meaningful role in that time were particularly vocal about this. Director Alan Parker defended his revisionist history to no one’s satisfaction. I think the controversy, which only heated after the Oscar nominations were announced, prevented the film from recognition beyond its well deserved cinematography award.

    In addition, while the performance has lost favor over time, Dustin Hoffman then captured the imagination of the vast number of movie goers with his portrayal of the challenged Raymond Babbitt. Hoffman was adored. The Best Actor Oscar was a foregone conclusion.
