Poll Twelve: Sally Field Vs. Tom Hanks
The last poll had just 4 votes between the two, so every vote does count.
Both Field & Hanks have two Oscars sitting on their mantlepieces. Field has two Best Actress Oscars, for Norma Rae and Places In The Heart. Hanks infamously won back to back Best Actor Oscars for Philadelphia and Forrest Gump.
Field has received one further nod in Supporting for Lincoln. Hanks has three additional nominations, for Big, Saving Private Ryan and Cast Away – all of his 5 Oscar nominations have been for Leading.
Field has received some of her best ever reviews for her performance in Hello, My Name Is Doris.
Hanks will appear in Bridge of Spies later this year, with A Hologram for the King, Ithaca, and Inferno (directed by Ron Howard) are all also on the horizon for Hanks over the next couple of years.
But which of the former on-screen mother & son duo do you think is more likely to win their third Oscar first.June 17, 2015 at 4:57 am #188607
Hanks. He works a bit more consistently than Sally Field does.June 17, 2015 at 6:36 am #188608
Field is not winning a third. When an actor becomes unpopular because they are a multiple acting Oscar winner the Academy shies away from them. Hence there are a lot of two-time winners who cannot get arrested for subsequent nominations.
Hanks, Penn, and Washington are all waiting in the wings for their inevitable third win. The only woman I see on the horizon for a third win in the near future is Blanchett to solidify her standing as one of the all-time greats.June 17, 2015 at 7:59 am #188609
I doubt that Field will ever be nominated again. She needed to wait for her third undeserving one for ages.June 17, 2015 at 8:46 am #188610
Sorry, how are Hanks’ back to back wins “infamous”? He was and is Hollywood royalty. He’s the highest grossing actor of all time. He’s basically the most likeable man in the entire Entertainment industry. He deserves a third Oscar way more than Field.June 17, 2015 at 8:49 am #188611
Infamous Oscar wins for acting: Field’s 2nd, Tomei, Swank’s 2nd.June 17, 2015 at 8:55 am #188612

Woops, didn’t meam infamous like that. Didn’t realise it meant known for a bad reason.June 17, 2015 at 10:54 am #188613
I don´t think either of them will EVER win again. Hanks has more possibilities of getting one or two more nominations though…June 17, 2015 at 12:29 pm #188614
Tom Hanks is the more likely choice and I expect he will win a third Oscar at some point. He was my win for Captain Phillips.
Sally Field has deserved way more nominations than just 3. She was snubbed hard for Steel Magnolias, Soapdish, and Forrest Gump. Thankfully she finally received another nomination in 2012 for her great supporting turn in Lincoln.
Hopefully Roadside Attractions knows what they’re doing with their 2016 release of Hello, My Name Is Doris and she gets some traction next year.June 17, 2015 at 5:14 pm #188615
I’ll go with Hanks. He’s a man, for starters. And he ‘missed’ with Captain Phillips and also Saving Mr Banks. Plus, he has some potentially interesting projects such as Bridge of Spies and a Dave Egger’s fueled film; a Meg Ryan-directed Ithaca and another one with Ron Howard.
I’d love to see Sally keep on working. She’s terrific. If anyone can overcome ageism in Hollywood for women, it’s her.
