    It’s been a while since there was a film to make a showing in 5 top categories at the Oscars. “Million Dollar Baby” was the final film in 2004 to achieve that: Best Picture, Best Director (Clint Eastwood), Best Screenplay (Adapted, Paul Haggis), Best Actress (Hilary Swank) and Best Actor (Clint Eastwood). That film won Picture, Director and Actress. The final to win all 5 was “The Silence of the Lambs”: Best Picture, Best Director for Jonathan Demme, Best Adapted Screenplay for Ted Tally, Best Actress for Jodie Foster and Best Actor for Anthony Hopkins. Will there be a film to finally break into all 5 categories again? It seems like in the recent years “True Grit” was the closest as Hailee Steinfeld had a buzz for Lead Actress nod but ultimately ended up in supporting.

    It’s even longer when we had a film with entrant in every single acting category. It was “Reds” in 1982 with Lead Actress nod for Diane Keaton, Lead Actor nod for Warren Beatty, Supporting Actress win for Maureen Stapleton and Supporting Actor nod for Jack Nicholson. It’s 30 years already! Is there a film with chances to finally achieve it yet again this year? 

    “Les Miserables” and “The Master” have no Lead Actress. Maybe “Silver Linings Playbook”?

    It’s certainly possible. Based on the current buzz, “Silver Linings Playbook” seems like it’s nearly a lock for every category other than Bradley Cooper (and even that is a strong possibility). Some actual response post-release will help to set things in a better perspective, but I’ve currently got it predicted for all 5 categories.

    Amour could do it this year, but as a FLF, that isn’t extremely likely.

    Amour is likely to be nominated for BP, best director, possibly both lead acting, and screenplay. My information is that SPC is not planning a major push for supporting actress though.

    Both as a Breaking Bad fan and as thedemonhog, that is good.

    thanks thedemonhog. I like your name too. lol actually the other day someone read my name wrong and just assumed it was you, as they are rather similar haha. but the name actually comes from one of my favorite episodes of Breaking Bad, and I thought it kind of fit.

    The film could pull off being nominated in all four acting categories too, if Jacki Weaver can pull off a great perf (though I don’t know about the magnitude of her role, whether she will be a dominant figure or a mere side-character).

    It’s not always common for films to get nominated in both lead acting categories, because most films only have one lead role.

    As for this year, I’m guessing Silver Linings Playbook has the best chance, depending on reaction to Cooper’s and Weaver’s performance.

    The one with closest chance is SLP, then the Sessions if Helen Hunt gets upgraded to lead. SLP misses out on Cooper currently (and for me David O’Russel) and the Sessions on Picture & Director. If there is a lead actor for August: Osange County next year then that does seem probable, but more probable still is Great Gatesby if Leo chooses that as his lead submission over Wolf of Wall Street.

    On 2 Side notes I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since this last happened and @theproblemdog that is a cool name (such a good episode!).

    The closest a film came to winning all five was American Beauty…Is this correct? It won:
    – Best Picture
    – Best Director, Sam Mendes
    – Lead Actor, Kevin Spacey
    – Original Screenplay, Alan Ball

    –Lead Actress: Annette Bening lost to Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry). Was that the closest it had been since The Silence of the Lambs

    Yes it was. Since TSOTL only 2 films were nominated in all 5 major categories and it were “American Beauty” and “Million Dollar Baby”. The former lost Best Actress while the latter lost Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor. AB was also the first one to settle on 4/5 by losing Best Actress. “Gone with the Wind”, “Mrs. Miniver” and “Annie Hall” all lost Best Actor only.

    The King’s Speech won 4 out of 4 (BP, BD, Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor). It just missed Best Actress.

    4 acting categories? The only one with a chance is Silver Linings Playbook, but I don’t think its gonna happen, it will miss out supporting actress.

    the main five categories? SLP again and Amour. But I don’t see their directors receiving the nomination, and for Amour there’s Trintignant that will also be left out.
