    Nearly every year at least one actor gets nominated for an Academy Award without hitting any one of the big 3 US based precursors; SAG/GG/Critics Choice. So as of now who has the best chance of filling that precious slot?

    In the past ten years, only 2006 was an exception.

    2014

    -Bradley Cooper-American Sniper

    -Laura Dern-Wild

    2013

    -Jonah Hill-The Wolf of Wall Street

    2012

    -Jacki Weaver-Silver Linings Playbook

    2011
    -Gary Oldman-Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
    -Max von Sydow-Extremely Loud&Incredibly Close

    2010

    -Javier Bardem-Biutiful

    2009
    -Maggie Gyllenhaal-Crazy Heart

    2008
    -Michael Shannon-Revolutionary Road

    2007

    -Tommy Lee Jones-In the Valley of Elah

    -Laura Linney-The Savages

    2006
    None.

    2005
    -William Hurt-A History of Violence

    How would Helen Mirren be a “WTF” nominee with two SAG nominations and many critics mentions? Look at the past ‘WTF nominees’ – they had zero support before the Oscar nomination.

    LOL, gotta agree that Helen Mirren is definitely not. She has too many mentions. I don’t think the poster understands what this thread is. haha

    For now, I think the most possible might be Michael Caine and Michael Keaton. The Academy tends to nom an older, respected actor and if you look at the contenders now, there is not one such actor. Dicaprio, Fassbender, Redmayne, Damon, Cranston, Smith, Depp are not really those. And besides Cranston, the other 5 are those “studs” that the Academy apparently loves to hate. So it might be possible that Caine sneaks in.

    And Keaton, with preferential voting, might have those small pool of voters who might rank him #1 and just push him into the nominees circle. Doesn’t hurt that he was just nominated last year.

    But with this year’s quite open races for almost everything for a nomination, who knows right? we could get a few of these people in.

    I still believe Joan Allen has a big chance. She’s in my 7th spot at the moment

    My pick is Stewart but I really think that Caine can get the nom (and if he does that probably will shake up best actor a bit)

    It depends on which film the Academy embraces more than many are expecting.

    If it’s Sicario, Benicio Del Toro.

    If it’s Brooklyn, Julie Walters.

    If it’s The Hateful Eight, Samuel L. Jackson.

    And I know they have nominations already, but I think WTFs could still include (because they’re so far out of the race in almost all predictions):

    If it’s The Big Short, Steve Carell.

    If it’s The Revenant, Tom Hardy

    If it’s Mad Max, Charlize Theron.

    But it won’t be Room so y’all can stop with the Joan Allen nonsense.

    From the options listed, I selected Kristen Stewart, but my personal pick remains Seth Rogen in Steve Jobs. If the film maintains solid support from the acting branch and the supporting actor category remains fluid, I could totally see him getting in.

    It’s one thing to not be nominated anywhere (Jonah Hill, Gary Oldman) it’s another thing being a WTF nominee (Dern, Weaver). 

    Helen Mirren wouldn’t be WTF.

    My guess is that Michael Caine and Ian McKellen who are being talked about in this weak year for Leading Actors fill that description. Even if somebody is talking about it it’s stil WTF because they’re so far away in this race and plenty of people predicting them haven’t actually watched their films and never will.
