    If TV Movies where eligible for Oscar consideration, what nominations (and wins) do you think they would’ve gotten over the years.

    Having just recently watched Bessie (2015) I feel like it would’ve be nominated the following

    • Picture
    • Actress
    • Sup. Actress
    • Original Screenplay
    • Makeup and Hairstyling
    • Original Score
    • Sound Mixing

    And potentially won actress for Queen Latifah

    Jessica Lange could have won her third Oscar for Grey Gardens while Drew Barrymore would get nominated for her first.

    Michael Douglas would totally sweep for that candlestick (or something) movie. I remember how crazy eevryone was for it. They said if it was theatrical release it would have swept.

    Grey Gardens would have been interesting. I don’t know if the producers would have Barrymore and Lange competing in the same category. I think either of them could have beaten Bullock with the right support. I do think Mirren was very vulnerable. I’m not sure if both could have gotten in actress. Could they have bumped Mulligan or Streep to get that to happen? But, nobody was beating Mo’Nique in supporting actress. I also think Ken Howard would have been nominated in supporting actor, bumping Harrelson or Plummer. I could also see it getting nominations for screenplay, costume, art direction, score, and makeup. Director I doubt, best picture only with decent box office. But I do feel safe saying it would have been competitive to receive 8 nominations.

    Laura Dern in The Tale would have beaten Olivia Colman in The Favourite.

    It know if she would’ve beaten Colman since it’s such an unpleasant content to watch, it’s why I’m convinced she lost the Emmy to Regina King for a cancelled Netflix show that they bumped to limited. Those who watched it adored it but chances are a lot didn’t just purely based on the subject matter

    I do wonder who she replaces though, Close & Gaga were the frontrunners that year with Colman & Aparico the leads of BP nominees, I guess McCarthy by default.

    Behind the Candelabra would have been another interesting one. I think the names involved could have easily propelled it to a Best Picture nod. Soderbergh could have bumped Scoresese, but more likely Payne, out of best director. Douglas would have been nominated, but at the expense of whom: Bale, Dern, DiCaprio, or Ejiofor? McConaughey would have been nominated and I still feel he would have won. All of those nominees were in best picture nominees (and even crowded out Hanks and Phoenix), so it’d be tough. Damon was lead at the Emmys but would he be supporting at the Oscars? He wouldn’t have beaten Leto, but would he take the spot of Abdi, Cooper, Fassbender, or Hill? I think Hill was the most vulnerable here. I don’t think Bakula had the clout to get a nom. I know on the board that folks wanted Debbie Reynolds to be in the talk for a supporting nod as Liberace’s mother, but she didn’t meet the 5% screentime rule. Would the Oscar’s feel the same? Probably not, but it would have been fun to see. It would have gotten writing, costumes, makeup, possibly cinematography and editing. I don’t know which it would have won though, if any.

    The interesting thing with Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore for Grey Gardens is that Jessica won the Emmy, but Drew won SAG and the Golden Globes. I preferred Drew slightly over Jessica and it would have been interesting to see how it would have played out at the Oscars if both were nominated in Lead Actress.

    Now THAT would have made for a very interesting race. Here are the ladies who were nominated for 1974 films:
    Ellen Burstyn – Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore as Alice Hyatt
    Diahann Carroll – Claudine as Claudine Price
    Faye Dunaway – Chinatown as Evelyn Cross Mulwray
    Valerie Perrine – Lenny as Honey Bruce
    Gena Rowlands – A Woman Under the Influence as Mabel Longhetti

    All of the women except Carroll were in movies with multiple nominations. Would that make her the most vulnerable? Dunaway was on her second nomination, Burstyn was on her 3rd nomination in 4 years. Tyson would have had her 2nd nomination, but for a groundbreaking, time-spanning role. It would have made for quite the season!

    Never realised until recently that Jane Pittman was a CBS film. It’s was always on TV movie I just naturally assumed it one of the films of new Hollywood following the studio collapse.

    That would’ve made the race more interesting, especially since it was a theatrical release in the UK and she managed to get a BAFTA. In a field of four nominees from a notoriously racially biased body.

    Candelabra was a theatrical film in the UK and actually done quite well at the BAFTAs that year. Damon got nominated in supporting there so I managed it would be the same at Oscar
