    This could happen with Birdman. Seems like an odd situation. I know it happened with A Beautiful Mind (but Crowe had just won the year before.)

    Did it happen any other times?  (I know I could look this up but I thought this would be more fun.)

    The Hurt Locker won 6 categories in writing, direcitng, sound mixing, sound editing, film editing, and best picture, but Jeremy Renner could not beat Jeff Bridges in the crapfest of “Crazyheart”.

    I guess I meant films where there is very clearly one star. Titanic has two. Hurt Locker sort of works but I wouldn’t say Renner is the sole lead in that film.

    Kate Winselt- Titantic
    Ralph Fiennes and Kristen Scott Thomas- The English Patient
    Kevin Costner- Dances with Wolves
    Liam Neeson- Schindler’s List

    That’s it that’s all I got.

    How many Best Picture winners have at least 3 acting nominations, but no acting wins? Dances with Wolves is the latest one.

    All About Eve – Bette Davis
    Gentleman’s Agreement – Gregory Peck
    Lawrence of Arabia – Peter O’Toole
    Tom Jones – Albert Finney
    Sound of Music – Julie Andrews
    Rocky – Sylvester Stallone

    Godfather Part II, 12 Years a Slave, Unforgiven, Chicago and The Deer Hunter and some of the above won supporting awards, but their sole leads (as I see them) went home empty-handed

    Casablanca won both+ and both Bogart and Rains lost. I’d say Bogart qualifies as the “main” star although, Ingrid Bergman rocketed to stardom after this.

    There’s Lawrence of Arabia, which cleaned up, except for the great Peter O’Toole.

    Tony Richardson won both for Tom Jones, but all the actors lost, and especially the great, Albert Finney, definitely the star.

    I’m not sure there was a particular star in Oliver!, but it too won both and both nominated actors lost.

    Schlesinger won both for Midnight Cowboy, but who was the star of that? They both lost.

    The Sting did the same, and Robert Redford, arguably the ‘star’, lost.

    Ditto for The Godfather 2.

    Yo, Rocky

    Out of Africa

    Platoon

    The others are already mentioned. Some of these are ensembles, but what the heck.

    Unrelated question but Godfather II was mentioned….

    What was the buzz at the time as to why Pacino lost and why John Cazale and Diane Keaton weren’t nominated?

    I really don’t understand the Cazale snub. Three supporting actor nominees from the film and none were him? De Niro makes sense (as a winner too) and the others were great, but better than Cazale? Nah. And Talia Shire got nommed and Keaton didn’t? Strange stuff.

    Inspired by 24Emmy’s question, I decided to look up what BP winners had 3+ acting nominees (without winning any of them), and I found 7 films in all.

    Five
    Tom Jones (Actor, Supporting Actor, 3 Supporting Actress)

    Four
    Rocky (Actor, Actress, 2 Supporting Actor) 

    Three
    Mutiny on the Bounty (3 Actor)
    Rebecca (Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress)
    The Apartment (Actor, Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Midnight Cowboy (2 Actor, Supporting Actress)
    Dances With Wolves (Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress)
