    Why are people saying Dern in The Tale and Latifah in Bessie would have won Oscars? They couldn’t even win Golden Globes or Emmys for these roles.

    I do think that Queen Latifah would have been worthy for Life Support. She won a Golden Globe and SAG for her performance. Released April 6, 2007.

    I think the Emmy winning actress that had the best chance of having her movie win Oscar would be Claire Danes for Temple Grandin. She would have been up against Natalie Portman and I think she could give her a run for her money.

    Agree…I think Claire Danes would’ve had won Best Actress

    Cheadle would have gone up against Spacey for American Beauty, Crowe for The Insider, and Washington for The Hurricane. He could have possibly edged out Farnsworth for The Straight Story or Penn for Sweet and Lowdown though.

    Woodard could have easily nudged out Christie’s performance in Afterglow but between Hunt & Dench, I don’t know if a win was possible. I looked at the lineup when The Piano Lesson came out, but it was 95: Sarandon, Shue, Stone, Streep, Thompson. Yeah, that was a formidable lineup. I do hate she wasn’t nominated for Passion Fish.

    Cheadle could have easily made the top five. Anything would have been better than Hunt as a nominee or winner. Woodard would have been an excellent choice. I’m still incredibly annoyed with that lineup when Grier was right there to nominate. As for “The Piano Lesson,” nothing was touching that final five. I don’t see Woodard being able to break through there.

    Judy Davis wins in 2001. Maybe Blanchard too, but Connelly was in a BP winner.
    Danes gives Portman a serious run for her money.
    I think Moore beats Streep in 2011. Moore was overdue and playing a more politically relevant role. I think Harris would also be a strong possibility to win as well, would he be lead? He could have maybe beaten Jean.
    Douglas and Damon could have both won in 2013, essentially doing what McConaughey and Leto did. I also could buy the DBC men, especially Matthew, still winning.
    Dern maybe could have gotten a nomination, but I don’t know if she could win for that movie.

    Thinking of some more.

    I think Ruffalo might win in 2014 for The Normal Heart. Redmayne had a bigger transformation, but I think Ruffalo maybe could have done it. I think regardless, Ruffalo and Roberts become clear alternatives to Redmayne and Arquette. Bomer maybe gets nominated, but isn’t derailing the Simmons train.

    Barrymore and Lange factor in majorly in 2009, and I think no one stops Mo’Nique, but maybe one of them stops Bullock. Barrymore especially would have an exciting narrative.

    Cranston gets in for All The Way, maybe could win, but it’s hard to imagine Affleck losing especially considering Affleck beat a majorly showy performance as is.

    Counting Limited Series in this is so hard because they are by design, different from the structure of a movie. THAT being said, Michelle Williams easily wins this year for a Fosse/Verdon movie (saving us from that snooze of a Zellweger sweep.)

    Something like People Vs. OJ becomes the quality sensation it is because it got to extend itself over the course of ten hours. It’s hard to say if Paulson wins in 2016 — does she get the same kind of material and arc in a 2 hour movie that she did in the show. The show dedicated an entire episode to her character’s inner turmoil which pretty much won her the Emmy, which maybe wouldn’t have happened in a film.

    Aside from some of the bigger ones I’ve already seen mentioned in this thread, here are a few I think could have feasibly picked up some nominations (mostly in acting, but with a few others here and there)

    Death of a Salesman (1985)

    • Best Actor – Dustin Hoffman (nominated over James Garner, wins over Paul Newman)
    • Best Supporting Actor – John Malkovich (nominated over William Hickey or Robert Loggia, potentially wins over Don Ameche)

    The Burning Season (1994)

    • Best Actor – Raúl Juliá (posthumously nominated over Nigel Hawthorne, loses to Tom Hanks)
    • Best Supporting Actor – Edward James Olmos (nominated over Chazz Palminteri, loses to Martin Landau)
    • Best Supporting Actress – Sonia Braga (nominated over Rosemary Harris, loses to Dianne Wiest)
    • Best Adapted Screenplay (nominated over The Madness of King George, loses to Forrest Gump)

    12 Angry Men (1998)

    • Best Picture (nominated over Elizabeth or The Thin Red Line, loses to Shakespeare in Love)
    • Best Director – William Friedkin (nominated over Terrence Malick or Peter Weir, loses to Steven Spielberg)
    • Best Actor – Jack Lemmon (nominated over Edward Norton or Tom Hanks, Benigni still wins)
    • Best Supporting Actor – George C. Scott (nominated over Robert Duvall, wins in a landslide over James Coburn)
    • Best Adapted Screenplay (nominated over A Simple Plan, potentially wins over Gods and Monsters)

    Introducing Dorothy Dandridge (2000)

    • Best Actress – Halle Berry (nominated over Joan Allen or Juliette Binoche, loses narrowly to Julia Roberts)
    • Best Costume Design (nominated over 102 Dalmatians, loses to Gladiator)

    Tuesdays with Morrie (2000)

    • Best Actor – Jack Lemmon (nominated over Javier Bardem, loses to Russell Crowe)
    • Best Supporting Actor – Hank Azaria (nominated over Jeff Bridges, loses to Benicio del Toro)

    James Dean (2001)

    • Best Actor – James Franco (nominated over Sean Penn, loses to Denzel Washington)

    The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2004)

    • Best Actor – Geoffrey Rush (nominated over Clint Eastwood or Johnny Depp, close race but Jamie Foxx still wins)
    • Best Original Screenplay (nominated over Hotel Rwanda, loses to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)
    • Best Cinematography (nominated over The Phantom of the Opera, loses to The Aviator)
    • Best Makeup and Hairstyling (nominated over The Sea Inside, wins over Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events)

    I will add one more drama and add Tyne Daley and Sharon Gless could have given some competition from a few of their winning submissions.

    If Grey Gardens had been released in theaters I think it would have been nominated across the board. Regarding both Barrymore and Lange, I think it’s pretty safe to assume that one of them would go supporting – I’m leaning towards Lange. Mo’Nique was unbeatable so she wouldn’t win but I do think Barrymore could have beaten Bullock.

    Game Change is also another one that would have had a successful run at Oscars. Moore would have easily won the Oscar over Lawrence imo. She would have the overdue narrative and a very transformative performance to back the win. Harrelson would have probably gotten in over Denzel but he would have a harder path. Harris and Paulson would have been nominated as well. The former would have probably overtake either Arkin or De Niro and I actually think he could have beaten Waltz. Like Moore, he would have the overdue narrative and a very transformative performance. While, Paulson would have certainly taken Weaver spot. Picture, Adapted Screenplay and Make-up and Hairstyling would have been sure locks for nominations as well. Roach could have also been nominated, probably taking Zeitlin spot.

    I think that Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore could have beaten Sandra Bullock. Then again Gabourey Sidibe and Carey Mulligan both were more deserving than Sandra Bullock.

    Diane Lane would not have won against Meryl Streep but at least she would get her second Oscar nomination for Cinema Verite. It will also be competitive for a win in Original Screenplay and Editing, probably bumping off Margin Call and The Descendants respectively.

    Something I just wondered, if Prayers for Bobby is Oscar eligible, does that mean Signourey Weaver finally gets her little gold man over Bullock?

    Oscars FYC:

    "Lamb" – International Feature and all categories

    "Summer of Soul" – Picture, Film Editing and Documentary Feature

    “The Green Knight” – in all categories
