    Another record I guess-

    Streep would join Olivier and Nicholson to be nominated for acting for five consecutive decades. Kate Hepburn, Bette Davis, Diane Keaton, Shirley MacLaine (they’re the only one I could recollect) have been nominated for four consececutive decades. (Kate Hepburn, Paul Newman, and Peter O’Toole have been nominated for 5 decades, albeit non-consecutive.)

    Don’t forget Michael Caine. He has been nominated in 5 consecutive decades.

    I find it very interesting that only 1 African American woman has been nominated more than 1 time.

    Now that the noms are up, let’s kick this into gear.  There are more to come but I have to leave for now.

    Filmmaker Achievements:
    – As of this morning he has a staggering 23 Oscar nominations (1 for acting, 7 for directing, and 15 for Original Screenplay)
    – Steven Spielberg now has directed a Best Picture nominee in the past 5 decades
    – George Clooney has been nominated for 7 Oscars since 2005 (1 for directing, 2 for Original Screenplay, and 4 for acting)
    – For the second time, George Clooney is nominated for acting and writing in the same year – but for different films (he first did this in 2005 for “Syriana” and “Good Night and Good Luck”) 

    Acting Milestones:
    – Meryl Streep extends her lead of most nominations for an actor to 17 (runner up: Katharine Hepburn and Jack Nicholson with 12)
    – Viola Davis becomes only the second African American actress in history to be nominated for more than one Oscar (the only other: Whoopi Goldberg)
    – Glenn Close gets her 6th nomination (she has 5 losses) and her first in 23 years
    – For the 4th consecutive year, 2 actresses from the same film were nominated for Best Supporting Actress
    – Brad Pitt (“Moneyball” and “The Tree of Life”), Viola Davis (“The Help” and “Extremely Loud”), and Jessica Chastain (“The Help” and “The Tree of Life”) all played prominent roles in more than 1 Best Picture nominee.

    Nomination Tallies of Acting Nominees:
    Meryl Streep – 17 (2 wins)
    Glenn Close – 6
    George Clooney – 4 (1 win)* 
    Nick Nolte – 3
    Brad Pitt – 3
    Michelle Williams – 3
    Kenneth Branagh – 2*
    Viola Davis – 2
    Janet McTeer – 2
    Christopher Plummer – 2
    Max Von Sydow – 2
    Berenice Bejo – 1
    Demian Bichir – 1
    Jessica Chastain – 1
    Jean Dujardin – 1
    Jonah Hill – 1
    Rooney Mara – 1
    Melissa McCarthy -1
    Gary Oldman – 1
    Octavia Spencer – 1 
    *only counting noms for acting 

    Milestones that Could Have Happened but Didn’t:
    – Glenn Close did not join the very small list of people who have been nominated for acting and songwriting
    – “Shame” did not become the first film with an NC-17 rating to score a major nomination
    – Steven Spielberg did not become the first director to have a Best Director nomination in 5 consecutive decades. 
    – “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” did not become the first film of modern times to get nominated for Best Picture and nothing else (thanks to the nomination for Max Von Sydow).

    One of these is not true: “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” was not nominated for Best Picture. And the other: I pretty sure “A Clockwork Orange” was nominated for Best Picture and a couple of others. It was rated NC-17.

    Jaws was nominated for Best Picture he was snubbed. Then he got in for Close Encounters, and the movie was snubbed.

    I was going to ask if it was the first time that more than one nominated actor had another non-acting nomination regarding Pitt and Clooney.

    But Massimo Troisi and Emma Thompson got nominated for acting and writing in 1995.

    Anthony Quinn was mexican. He ws nominated for Zorba the Greek.

    Anyway, some facts

    Berenice Bejo is the second argentinian actress to be nominated. Both (Norma Aleandro and her) were nominated for best supporting actress.

    It is the first time that an spanish co-production is nominated for an oscar (Midnight in Paris is partly spanish)

    I think it is the first time that two non english languague movies are nominated for best animated film. A cat in paris (french), Chico & Rita (spanish)

    Fernando Trueba whose film “Belle Epoque” won an oscar for foreign movie is now nominated for best animated film.

    I think is the second time that an actor is nominated for a role as an oscar winning actor. Both were in supporting roles.  Kenneth Brannagh playing Laurence Olivier and Cate Blanchett playing Kate Hepburn.

    John Williams his 47 and 48th nominations. He is the living person who has more nominations. It is the 8th time he got a double nomination in the same category (72, 77, 84,87, 89, 2001& 2005) 

    All the actors/ actress in supporting category has never got an oscar yet. I dont recall when was the last time that happen

    Second, Anthony Quinn was mexican…or at least born in Mexico. He was nominated in lead for Zorba the Greek. He of course won two supporting Oscars.

    The only mexicans I think are Anthony Quinn, Demian Bichir, Salma Hayek, Katy Jurado and Adriana Barraza.

    While we’re at it, Berenice Bejo is the second argentinian. Norma Aleandro was the first, also from Buenos Aires.
