    the last time that Glenn Close and Max von Sydow (omfg!!) were nominated was in 1989, It’s a 23 years gap, so besides Helen Hayes (39 years) is there any case with 20 years or more between nominations??

    My bff Sissy Spacek has now been in a best pic nominee every decade 4 times in a row and interestingly, all near the beginning of each decade.

    1980 – Coal Miner’s Daugher
    1982 – Missing

    1991 – JFK

    2001 – In the Bedroom

    2011 – The Help

    Wonder who else if anyone has been a part of best pic nominee in these consec decades.

    Her hubby is art director of Tree of Life, so both their films this year are best pic nominees.

    Now on the downsided – what happened to Swinton and Fassbender? Haven’t seen Rooney’s perf so can’t really comment, but have seen all the best actor nominees and very surprised about Fassbender, particularly since he placed in key critics awards, was nommed for a BAFTA, Globe, won Venice, has previous solid work (namely Hunger) and has been great in multiple roles in 2011.

    The last time that all best actress nominees were born in the States was in 1991.

    Swinton and Fassbender’s films were just not Oscar movies. Dragon Tattoo turned out not to be either, but was more mainstream than “Kevin”, which I suppose is the reason Rooney Mara made it in.

    Three silent performances, when the last time any was nominated was year (1928-29), and then only one.

    (oops – forgot Jane Wyman, maybe there has been another mute one)

    Wasn’t Samantha Morton mute in Sweet & Lowdown?

    Never saw the movie, so I don’t know if she was 100% mute. But SPOILER: neither is Jean Dujardin who speaks in the final scene.

    For whatever it’s worth, “The Artist” does stand to set a precedent on an incredibly tiny technicality if it DID win Best Picture… One that is definitely only for the split-hair-nitty-gritty trivia buffs:

    Contrary to “Wings”‘s reputation, no silent film has ever won “Best Picture.” “Wings”‘s trophy was for “Best Production,” and “Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans” was honored as “Best Unique and Artistic Production.”

    Alan Arkin had quite a gap. 1969 second nomination, 2007 third nod and first win (going by ceremony years). 38 years.

    Julie Christie 1972 second nod, 1998 third nod. 26 years (again, ceremony years).

    Almost: Lynn Redgrave 22 years…there must be more…

    I’d have to check to see on Morton, as well as Wyman and Marlee Matlin’s characters made any sounds
    Von Sydow is totally silent

    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.)

    Also Michael Caine was nominated for five consececutive decades.

    Marlee Matlin speaks in Children of a Lesser God. It’s not even just “sounds”, it’s words, as the actress herself can actually speak.

    I wonder what are people considering as “SILENT”. The Artist is not a silent movie. Just as there are not three silent performances nominated this year, just two.

    Matlin is not a silent performance.. Not like von Sydow, Bejo and Dujardin, Wyman and Holly Hunter. There must be others!

    Holly Hunter did have some voice over though.
