    While “Oscar upgrades” from supporting actor to lead actor are not quite as rare as upgrades on the female side, they are quite rare as only Jack Lemmon, Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson (though he won lead before winning supporting and then lead again), Kevin Spacey and Denzel Washington have done it.

    Who will be the next to join them?

    Nicholson and Hackman won second Oscars in supporting.

    Lemmon, De Niro, Spacey, and Washington got the upgrade.

    I think Clooney, Bale, and Freeman are the immediate possibilities.

    Nicholson managed to win another Best Actor award after winning Best Supporting Actor, so I included him.

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say Christian Bale will be the next one to do it. He’s making great choices so far since the end of the Batman trilogy/his supporting win and has already bagged his first leading nomination. He’s young, popular and a muse of the Academy’s most enamored director of actors.

    Two years ago I would have said Clooney undoubtedly but he now seems to be more into producing Oscar bait instead of acting in it.

    If Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood make another film together before one of them retires, Freeman could get it.

    Pretty sure Michael Caine said a year or two ago that he’s still gunning for it.

    Javier Bardem has an outside chance if he does another English-language film. I’d love to see him do it. I’d let that man do so many things to me.

    Anything is possible of course but I’m willing to bet that Tim Robbins and Jim Broadbent will never be nominated for another Oscar, let alone in the lead category. Maybe Robbins for directing. And Chris Cooper, particularly because of his age, will most likely never escape the supporting field.

    Morgan Freeman, one of America’s most beloved and revered actors, will win the Best Actor Oscar on his next nomination.

    I actually think the next guy to do it will be Ryan Gosling, who will win in supporting soon for one of those issue-driven ensemble dramas a la Clooney, and then later in his career will win Best Actor for an acclaimed performance in a Best Picture-winning film.

    I could see the same happening to Jake Gyllenhaal and Oscar Isaac.

    He’s the one I’ve got at the top of my list. Yes, he’s a senior, but I’m not so sure this ageism is as rampant with his gender,

    I like the names being thrown around here, but I’m going to go older, and suggest Tommy Lee Jones could do it. He’s always been on the academy’s radar, and it wouldn’t be surprising for him to direct himself in a movie, and win in lead. He was nominated in 2008, and he has The Homesman coming out soon, so it isn’t a stretch.

    Jones’ Best Actor nomination for In the Valley of Elah was shocking. It showed his popularity and now that he had one nomination in the lead category they won’t settle for awarding him again in supporting outside of nominations.

    I think Michael Caine has a good shot.If he got nominated again,he’d be the only living actor to have been nominated in 60s,70s,80s,90s,00s,10s,and it has been long since he won his last Oscar,there’s definitely possibilities.

    Robin Williams can win in his late 70s for a career-defining role – think along the lines of Bruce Dern’s role in Nebraska. The man deserved to win an Oscar, but I’m not sure it should have been for Good Will Hunting, but instead he should have won Best Actor forGood Morning Vietnam and Best Supporting Actor for The Fisher King (it would have been so easy for him to have taken down Jack Palance)

    Tim Robbins could have done it five years ago, but with increasingly poor roles and supporting choices, he isn’t likely to win again. But he could make a comeback.

    George Clooney will win after he has taken a short break from the Oscars – because we’ve been seeing a bit too much of him lately. In a few years when he gets a role similar to Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, he will reap the Best Actor trophy.

    I am going to go to my deathbed predicting Christoph Waltz will continue winning Oscars – like my fantasy is just that he wins like five Oscars  no, but seriously, the man is a little fireball of charisma, energy and amazing talent. I can see him winning again without a doubt, but maybe only in a decade or so (or Big Eyes could be a massive hit, we never know)

    Nicholson and Hackman won second Oscars in supporting.

    Lemmon, De Niro, Spacey, and Washington got the upgrade.

    Just curious (because I just woke up and am too lazy to do the research myself haha), when did each of these wins happen, and who did it first?

    I know in Lead Actress it goes…

    Helen Hayes
    1. 1931, Lead, The Sin of Madelon Claudet
    2. 1970, Supp., Airport

    Ingrid Bergman
    1. 1944, Lead, Gaslight
    2. 1956, Lead, Anastasia
    2. 1974, Supp., Murder on the Orient Express

    Magge Smith
    1. 1969, Lead, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie
    2. 1978, Supp., California Suite

    Meryl Streep
    1. 1979, Supp., Kramer vs. Kramer
    2. 1982, Lead, Sophie’s Choice
    3. 2011, Lead, The Iron Lady

    Jessica Lange
    1. 1982, Supp., Tootsie
    2. 1994, Lead, Blue Sky

    Cate Blanchett
    1. 2004, Supp., The Aviator
    2. 2013, Lead, Blue Jasmine  

    Hayes, Bergman and Smith won Lead then Supporting, while the latter three – Streep, Lange, Blanchett – won Supporting then Lead. There’s a 12-year gap in between Streep and Lange then a – yikes! – 19-year gap between Lange and Blanchett. So apparently this isn’t a trend that occurs too frequently like it started (good news for the Hathaway haters, who, along w/ Jolie, was amongst the likeliest to win Lead sooner than later).
