    With the recent win by Meryl Streep taking her to a rarely achieved third Oscar win for acting, we wanted to ask who you would predict to be the next actor to achieve this extraordinary accomplishment. Please give your reasons behind your prediction. We will pull the best responses and the results for an upcoming featured blog item.

    The poll options include any active actors who already have two Oscars for acting (Jack Nicholson is not included since he already has a third).

    I heard Gene Hackman was retired. Robert De Niro has given up. Of the remaining, I would guess either Daniel Day-Lewis or Sean Penn, since they consistently choose Oscar-baity roles in serious pictures and tend to avoid the apparently irresistibly remunerative shit the rest opt for time after time…

    Daniel Day-Lewis because he will win for Lincoln this year.

    Day-Lewis or Penn are the most likely by far.  Day-Lewis is a contender this year with Lincoln, and I’m sure Penn will be back in a race soon, he hasn’t had a juicy role since Milk really.

    Denzel has Flight coming out this year where he plays a drug-addicted pilot, which sounds baity, so he could make a comeback with that if it’s good.  Then again, he hasn’t been nominated since Training Day.

    Hanks hasn’t even been close to a nomination for a while, but someone as beloved a Hollywood icon as him shouldn’t be counted out if he gets the right role.

    I could maybe see Caine getting another nomination in Supporting at some point with the right character part.  It would be awesome if he became the first actor to be nominated in six different decades.  A win is doubtful though.

    De Niro, Hoffman and Spacey will never be nominated again in all likelihood.  Neither will Hackman because he’s retired.

    Both Sean Penn and Daniel Day-Lewis could end up winning three Oscars, but I don’t think Day-Lewis will win his third with Lincoln. It may feel too soon after his second win. We have to wait and see who he’ll be up against if he’s nominated.

    Academy loves Day-Lewis and Penn and those two are getting Oscar baity parts, but i can’t see any of them winning in near future.

    The Academy does love lots of actors but a third Oscar is extremely rare. Of the mentioned actors – Day-Lewis and Sean Penn – are definitely possibilities but it won’t happen soon. 

    If you look at all the actors who have three (and Hepburn with four), you’ll see a pattern there. Only Walter Brennan won his Oscars in a short period of time but it was in the 30’s and 40’s and the extras were voting and were (I believe) the majority of the Academy and pushed one of their own.

    The other four – Hepburn, Bergman, Nicholson and Meryl Streep – all won over a long period of time.

    Hepburn won her third Oscar when she was already a legend and in her 60’s. And above all – it was her record-breaking 11th nomination. Jack Nicholson won in his 60’s and he was in his 60’s and on his record-breaking (for male actors) 11th nomination. Ingrid Bergman won a few months before turning 60 and it was her 6th career nomination (and her first! nomination in 18 years. There were 14 years between Nicholson’s second and third Oscars (and it took him a long time to win his first!), there were 34 years between Hepburn’s first and second Oscars and the third Oscar came right away and it took Meryl 29 years to get that third Oscar. So none of these actors feels right at the time.

    Day-Lewis could win a third after a few losses and in 5-10 years’ time.

    Sean Penn is a bit too much for them, I guess. Brando never won a third.

    But in the end here’s my PREDICTION: Hollywood doesn’t care much about greatness. Coolness means more. So of the actors working today in 20 years time ..

    George Clooney will be a three time Oscar winner..

    To me he doesn’t deserve it but I believe it’s going to happen, especially given how often he gets nominated.

    I voted for Daniel Day-Lewis, and he could go the distance next year for “Lincoln.”

    If he did, it would be the first Speilberg-directed performance to win an Oscar. That is both pretty shocking and also doesn’t bode all that well for his chances next year.

    I’m sure Lewis will be great in Lincoln, but idk if the Academy will rush to award him so soon. They didn’t give it to him in ’02 when he was the clear cut frontrunner. However they did get it right that year with the best actor. No offence but I don’t think Sean Penn deserves a third. He didn’t deserve either of his other two wins against his competition.

    Daniel Day-Lewis is the obvious answer but I doubt he wins his third just 5 years after winning his second. If they can hold off from rewarding him for GONY I think they’ll probably hold off for his work in Lincoln, especially with an equally baity (if not more so) work from Oscar nominee John Hawkes.

    I think Hackman has retired from acting.

    Also, that 2x winning actor list seems really incomplete without Pacino, he needs a second one stat. If only You Don’t Know Jack was released for theatres.

    I actually agree that John Hawkes could be next year’s best actor winner. He has the baity project combined with the indie feel and it’s a performance and a film that could be unstoppable in terms of Oscar wins and namely because the film doesn’t feel like a film made to win Oscars. Day-Lewis will probably have to wait and no matter how solid Lincoln is (and I have my doubts), it’ll get a lot of blacklash because the expectations for such projects are always very high. And Day-Lewis has only 4 nominations and a third Oscar is something extremely rare.

    On Sean Penn: I like Sean Penn. To me he deserved an Oscar in 1995 but not for the two performances he won for. His win for Milk was a slap in the face of Rourke. And his win for Mystic River was pretty much a ‘we-owe-you-something’ situation. And how exactly did he get nominated for Sweet and Lowdown and I Am Sam?

    But of the actors mentioned above, if DE NIRO makes a really big role in a big movie, he has a shot. But chances are very slim.
