Playing Judy Garland won Judy Davis an Emmy, earned Tracie Bennett a Tony nomination, and now might get Renee Zellweger an Oscar nomination or win. I imagine at least a couple of Shakespearean roles have pulled off that hat trick, but it seems like it would be a rare feat. How many roles have done it?September 27, 2019 at 12:57 pm #1203108589
Playing Carrie Watts in The Trip to Bountiful won Geraldine Page an Oscar and earned Cicely Tyson a Tony as well as an Emmy nomination.September 27, 2019 at 1:04 pm #1203108599
Queen Eleanor from The Lion in Winter got Rosemary Harris a Tony, Katherine Hepburn an Oscar and Glenn Close an Emmy nominationSeptember 27, 2019 at 1:10 pm #1203108617
Helen Mirren won an Oscar for playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen and later won a Tony for playing her in The Audience. Claire Foy won an Emmy for portraying her in The Crown, and Olivia Colman is already being predicted to do the same this next season.

My first instinct was “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”…but the National Theatre Live broadcast (featuring Imelda Staunton and Conleth Hill) did not earn any Emmy nominations.
Still the play has an impressive awards history.
Martha earned an Oscar for Elizabeth Taylor and a Tony for Uta Hagen. Additional Tony nominations were earned by Amy Morton, Kathleen Turner, and Colleen Dewhurst.
George earned Tracy Letts and Arthur Hill Tonys. Additional Tony noms were earned by Ben Gazzara and Bill Iwrin. Richard Burton was Oscar nominated.
Honey earned Sandy Dennis an Oscar. Tony nominations were earned by Carrie Coon, Mireille Enos, and Melinda Dillon.
Nick earned a Tony nom for David Harbour and Oscar nom for George Segal.
This season’s Broadway revival could increase this tally with Laurie Metcalf, Rupert Everett, Patsy Ferran, and Russell Tovey.
Now someone make a TV movie and get that Emmy!September 27, 2019 at 1:43 pm #1203108717
Not just Judy Davis, but Tammy Blanchard also won an Emmy as (young) Judy. So that’s a bonus for the role of Judy Garland and this list. Plus it was the same film/same year, which is fun for trivia. Like Winslet who got Oscar nominated in a combo like this twice.September 27, 2019 at 1:44 pm #1203108725
What about the Streecar Named Desire roles? I’m too lazy to check right now but 3 won Oscars and I know Lange and at least Baldwin got Emmy nods. Don’t know about Tonys.September 27, 2019 at 1:46 pm #1203108732
And on the topic of Judy: Isabel Keating was also Tony nominated for playing Judy Garland in “The Boy From Oz.”September 27, 2019 at 1:53 pm #1203108764
Blanchett has 2 nods for Elizabeth I, Judi Dench won for the role (again, same year as Blanchett) and Mirren and Glenda Jackson won Emmys for it. Did the role ever go to Broadway?
And if you’re counting nominations, Glenda Jackson earned multiple Emmy noms for this role that same year. Don’t remember why.September 27, 2019 at 3:27 pm #1203109008
What about the Streecat Named Desire roles? I’m too lazy to check right now but 3 won Oscars and I know Lange and at least Baldwin got Emmy nods. Don’t know about Tonys.

Viola Davis won an Oscar and a Tony for the same role. Even though she 100% deserved both, that was easy and very calculated
Cynthia Erivo won a Tony and an Emmy for The Color Purple as well. The same role that almost gave the Oscar to Whoopi Goldberg in 1985September 27, 2019 at 5:07 pm #1203109146
If Whoopi won in 1985, will she get another for Ghost?
No black woman has ever won 2 Oscars and even getting a sophomore nom is a struggle
Besides, her Ghost performance was far from undeniable. It was good, funny and entertaining but nothing incredible. I don’t think the Academy would have rushed to give her a 2nd one so quickly (or ever)September 27, 2019 at 5:55 pm #1203109235
Yeah. Lorraine Bracco probably would’ve taken that. It would’ve been a great win too. I think Goodfellas would’ve helped her beat Bening who I would asume was 3rd. Since Ghost was a BP nominee and won screenplay, Whoppi still gets nominated.
