    Let’s settle this for once.

    Who among the two actors has the greatest four-peat of consecutive Oscar nominations??

    Marlon Brando (1951-1954) [A Streetcar Named Desire, Viva Zapata!, Julius Caesar, On The Waterfront]

    Al Pacino (1972-1975) [The Godfather, Serpico, The Godfather Part 2, Dog Day Afternoon]

    Brando is a legend, but Pacino in those 4 movies is better then 98% of all acting performances.

    FYC Oscars: Chloe Zhao (Nomadland), Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mark Rylance (Trial of the Chicago 7), Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), Soul (Best Picture, Best Animated Feature Film, and Best Original Screenplay)

    FYC Golden Globes (TV): Ted Lasso (Best Comedy Series), Jason Sudekis (Best Actor in a Comedy Series), Hannah Waddingham (Best Supporting Actress), The Boys (Best Drama Series), Anthony Starr (Best Actor in a Drama Series)

    All four of Pacino nominations where oscar worthy, should have won for three of them.

    Brando’s work was phenomenal and Pacino had the luxury of having watched those performances before he ever acted…that said the Pacino 4-peat is truly fantastic!

    Did anyone else ever get 4 in a row? I was always surprised that William Hurt got close to it with Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Children of a Lesser God, Broadcast News and then missed for The Accidental Tourist.

    They clearly liked Accidental Tourist since it got in for Best Picture and Geena Davis won in one of the biggest Oscar upsets ever.

    Susan Sarandon could have been a 5-peater if she had a nomination for 1993.

    Probably Pacino – all 4 indisputable classics (I’m not sure if Julius Caesar is one). Brando was the hotter one though :d

    Let’s not forget Bette Davis and Greer Garson had 5 nominations in a row.

    How did the user Liz Taylor not answer “Liz Taylor” when someone asks who else has 4 nominations in a row?

    (Just kidding, thought it was funny seeing this question and then seeing a user named “Liz Taylor” as I was about to post her name.)

    Also just gonna add in here that Bette Davis:

    1938 – Jezebel (won)
    1939 – Dark Victory
    1940 – The Letter
    1941 – The Little Foxes
    1942 – Now, Voyager
    (then missed ’43 but got in for ’44, so 6 noms in 7 years)

    and Greer Garson:

    (got in for ’39 but missed ’40, so also 6 noms in 7 years)
    1941 – Blossoms in the Dust
    1942 – Mrs. Miniver (won)
    1943 – Madame Curie
    1944 – Mrs. Parkington
    1945 – The Valley of Decision

    Have both gone for 5 in a row, which I’m pretty sure is the all time record.

    Have anyone ever top that Pacino list of 4 amazing roles in a row?

    Brando is really close. If you dont look at the nominations, Kidman has:
    Eyes Wide Shut 1999
    Mouling Rouge 2001
    The Others 2001
    The Hours 2002
    Dogville 2003

    Pacino. There’s nothing to “settle.”

    I’d say Pacino films were better but Brando gave better performances. Nothing Pacino has done can touch Brando in A Streetcar Named Desire or On the Waterfront
