    Which actors or actresses have received Oscar nominations four straight years? I plan on writing an article soon and want some help on this topic.

    After seeing Bradley Cooper tonight in “Joy” (a role I had heard was only 4-5 minutes but is certainly not), I think it is possible he could get back in this year. We have underestimated him several times before, especially last year.

    That’s it. Seven actors have achieved this feat thus far.

    A person who strangely just missed this list is William Hurt.

    He got:

    1985 Kiss of The Spiderwoman
    1986 Children of a Lesser God
    1987 Broadcast News
    and then in 1988 he wasn’t nominated for The Accidental Tourist even though it got a Best Picture nomination and Geena Davis won.

    Glad to hear he’s in contention, David O. Russell films do so well in the acting categories, I’ll be putting Cooper in.

    So, when Mr Cooper receives his nomination this year, he’ll have four in a row.

    Imagine that…

    Gotta give props to Walter Brennan, who received 4 noms between ’37-’42, winning three of them. We all know about him but, he deserves a mention anyways.

    Who is Bradley Cooper going to bump off the list? I personally believe Sylvester Stallone will win; Keaton, Ruffalo, Rylance, Hardy, Elba, Tremblay, Dano, Daniels, Cohen, Shannon, Goggins, Keitel, De Niro, Edgerton, Rogen, Bale, Elliott… the category is STRONG. I don’t think Cooper is going to happen this year.

    It’s always so disappointing to me that Bette Davis never won after her first two nominations got her two Oscars (she deserved the second one; Katharine Hepburn ought to have won the first for Alice Adams). She deserved to win for The Letter, The Little Foxes, Now, Voyager, All About Eve, The Star, and Whatever Happened To Baby Jane? She certainly should have won at least one more Oscar! (I think you can tell who my all-time favorite golden age actress is!)

    It’s odd that Pacino didn’t win for any of his superior 1970’s performances and won for the shlocky Scent Of A Woman instead.

    Thelma Ritter ought ot have won for Pickup On South Street.

    I am not saying he will get in with such tough competition. His role is bigger than I thought, so it’s worth bringing up the possibility.

    Not quite the same but from 1959-1968, Katherine Hepburn only appeared in four films (Suddenly Last Summer, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?, and The Lion in Winter) and was nommed for all 4, winning for the last two.

    Could you give details on Edgar Ramirez and his performance? I remember I had a suspicion he could be the supporting player to win the hearts of us all and earn a nomination. Which could stunt Cooper here.

    I guess this will be the year everyone tries to redeem themselves by jumping on the Cooper bandwagon in advance, when he will actually be missing the nomination for the first time.
    Those are always good.

    And for that matter, Robert De Niro?
