    Based on the conversation in another thread, I was curious what was expected to happen has Kate Winslet scored a double nomination in 2008 (lead for Revolutionary Road, supporting for The Reader). Was it possible she could have prevailed in both categories?

    I highly doubt she would’ve won both like she did at the Globes.

    Although, at the time, I did actually predict (as did a few people on here) that they would upgrade her nomination for THE READER to Lead. In a way, I was very surprised I actually called that. I considered it something of a hot streak at the time having predicted the wins for Arkin and Swinton the two years prior.

    For me personally, I actually preferred her performance in REVOLUTIONARY ROAD and would’ve rather her be nominated for that. Even then, I think I still would’ve voted for Anne Hathaway or the snubbed Sally Hawkins. I also remember liking Kristin Scott Thomas in I’VE LOVED YOU SO LONG.

    Winslet should’ve won for ETERNAL SUNSHINE and she was also very viable for SENSE & SENSIBILITY and I wouldn’t have minded if she pulled it off for STEVE JOBS.

    I think had the Academy kept her in Supporting for THE READER that they probably would’ve opted for Streep in DOUBT which very well would’ve opened the door for Davis to win for THE HELP.

    I think the studios worked out a deal to campaign The Reader as supporting and Revolutionary Road as lead, but acting branch members instead placed her in lead for the former. She probably only missed the double nomination narrowly.

    Yeah, that’s basically how it went down.

    Winslet was campaigned in Supporting and then won Globe and SAG in that category.

    Then at BAFTA she was double nominated in Lead and won for THE READER. I think it was that occurrence that made myself and others consider the option of her slipping into Lead for that role.

    It’s certainly a similar case to Stanfield’s wackadoo Supporting nom this year where they just chose to put him there despite the campaign. I just think it’s remarkable enough voters actually voted for him in that category. It made more sense with Winslet because a lot of people did feel it was borderline Lead anyways.
