    What are some examples of actors/actresses or directors, writers, etc who have been nominated a few times without winning and probably came in second every time they were nominated?

    Annette Bening and Quentin Tarantino (in director) are the first that come to mind.

    Not everytime, but Scorsese was probably in second for Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Aviator, Hugo, and maybe even Gangs of New York.

    Julianne Moore.

    I don’t think she would have been second any time she was nominated tbh.

    Boogie Nights – Basinger then Stuart
    The End of the Affair – Swank then Bening
    Far From Heaven – Kidman then Zellweger
    The Hours – Zeta Jones then Streep

    The last two are debatable and she would have definitely finished at least third both times but the first two are pretty clear cut in who was the runner up

    I’m not sure about every time, but Emmanuel Lebezki was probably runner-up  at least 3 times.

    Tree of Life
    Children of Men
    Sleepy Hollow

    That will probably change after this year.

    Also, Roger Deakins for cinematography.

    Viola Davis is a good point!

    Kind of the easy answer but Meryl Streep has probably been second a few times, althought these are debatable:
    Julie and Julia
    Doubt
    Adaptation
    Maybe French Lieutenants Woman?

    George Clooney’s Lead Actor nominations.

    He had to be second to Day-Lewis, Bridges (some could say it was Firth) and Dujardin.

    This thread is supposed to be about being second everytime they were nominated. So you did the first one right. But Phoenix was probably in third after Ledger in 05.

    Viola Davis works because she was probably second for The Help and Doubt.

    Chastain works too because she was probably second for The Help and Zero Dark Thirty.

    Streep definitely does not work.

    Fincher works because he was second for Benjamin Button and Social Network, as I noted before.

    Scorsese doesn’t quite work, but I went over in an earlier post how he’s been second place most of the times he’s been in the race.

    I wonder if Thomas Newman fits this bill? I don’t know all his noms off the top of my head. My guess would be no, some of them were probably rubberstamping like his one this year.

    Again, not every time, but Paul Newman took a while to get that Academy Award, and I wouldn’t be surprised if at least his first 3 Best Actor nods (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, Hud) had him at 2nd place each time. Maybe The Verdict, too, given how Dustin Hoffman had just won an Oscar 3 years before that.
