    What’s better? Being an Oscar-winner as a one-hit wonder (Tatum O’Neal, Jennifer Hudson, Kim Basinger, Mira Sorvino and many more) or a multiple nominee, Oscar-less actor (Amy Adams, Annette Bening, Glenn Close and so on)?

    I think the nomination itself is an “award” in a way. So I always loved the multipe nominees better other than a once-in-a-lifetime lucky Oscar-winners.

    I think I would like to be a multiple Oscar-nominee too. but for multiple roles in differentes genres, I think that says a lot about the actor and what he’s capable of.

    If i at least won at the Globes, then i would prefer to be a multiple nominee.

    But winning an Oscar is my all time dream.

    I would rather have a long career than have one or two hits and be done.

    But let’s face facts, even if you have one great success and win an Oscar, that’s still pretty awesome too.

    This kinda reminds me of the whole rings vs records argument in sports. And in that case I rather bring home some damn hardware once than get close and lose multiple times ala Buffalo Bills.

    I would be much more satisified and content if I only won 1 Oscar from 1 omination, than I would if I never won with 5 nominations!

    Well it depends. I’d rather have Harisson Ford type career (countless classics under my belt, many lifetime achievement awards, big bucks etc and he isn’t even a multiple nominee) than almost any other actor’s. But if I had to choose between F. Murray Abraham’s career where he won for one of the greatest performances in film’s history and almost always filler nominee Amy Adams’, I’d always choose Abraham’s (he works steadily in all mediums). Being a winner put you in a more elite group of actors than being a nominee. But having many masterpieces/all time great films to me is even higher honor. So it all depends of type of a career we’re talking about as there’s no definitive answer.

    I’m never one for trying to aim higher. I’m telling on myself, but whatever. I voted one, because I will forever be “Oscar winner . . .” and that would be pretty damn cool.

    I’d rather be a Lee Marvin than a Peter O’ Toole, personally.

    Winning once is better than being invited to the party multiple times to watch someone else at the podium.

    I’d rather win. Making an acceptance speech is something that I’ve imagined since I was a child. If I still find steady work, I’d like to think constant recognition isn’t necessary, but who really knows.
