There has to be a thread identical to this SOMEWHERE on the forum, but I thought I’d start one just in case there isn’t one already
I, as most award show lovers, have often wondered who comes second at the Oscars? Who was the person with the second most votes?
List your personal opinions of who came second at the Oscars (choose any years you want and as many as you want) here and we’ll see who lost the Oscar by a margin…
My personal opinions:
84th Academy Awards
Winner – The Artist
Runner-Up: The Descendants
Winner: Jean Dujardin (The Artist)
Runner-Up: Gary Oldman (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) – note: I’m well aware that George Clooney could have won this if Dujardin did’nt, but I believe Oldman had the overdue factor working for him.
Winner – Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady)

Best Supporting Actor:
Winner – Christopher Plummer (Beginners)
