Only three female actors have ever won 3 or more Oscars in acting categories (Katharine Hepburn , Ingrid Bergman, and Meryl Streep).
There are eleven living actresses who have won 2 Oscars. Which of these women do you think is most likely to become the next 3-time Oscar winner?
Due to the limit of 10 options in a poll, I excluded Olivia de Havilland as an option, as she is retired from acting and nearly 103 years old.June 23, 2019 at 3:36 pm #1202948946
Maggie Smith next yearJune 23, 2019 at 3:41 pm #1202948951
I feel like it’s way too early for McDormand to receive another Oscar before the others. I mean she has some baity projects up and she seems to win when she gets nominated for Lead but it was just last year, and I don’t think she’ll have enough industry support to get her that third so soon.
Blanchett seems likely with her last win in 2014 and being one of the industry’s top actresses. For what though, I have no clue. Maybe Lucy and Desi (which would probably put it close to 7 years since her last win).
Smith might be coming for it this upcoming year though, and it seems the most probable, being an already acclaimed and beloved performance.
Hillary Swank lol…

I think Blanchett is most likely just due to the roles she chooses and is in more Oscar caliber movies than the others. But, Maggie Smith isn’t a bad choice if the Downton movie does well.June 23, 2019 at 4:12 pm #1202948995
And honestly, once Kidman gets her second she’ll be more likely than most of the actresses on this list.
There are a few one-time winners that I think are more likely to get to three than most of the current 2x winners, who are consistent and/or young enough that they have plenty of opportunities to get to three (Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Emma Stone, and as you mentioned, Nicole Kidman), but for now, I figured it would make the most sense just to include the 2x winners, as they are only 1 win away from becoming a 3-timer.June 23, 2019 at 4:42 pm #1202949081
I believe it’ll be Cate Blanchett. She’s a wonderful actress who plays so many wildly different roles in baity movies. She’s come close to winning more than once, so I truly believe it’s only a matter of time. I can also see Frances McDormand pulling off a third win, but I think it’ll be a while before that happens.June 23, 2019 at 5:03 pm #1202949089
You better all create enough online hype to Maggie Smith. Even if the movie sucks.
Good sis is too much of an icon and probably will never film an Oscar movie again.
I bet the studio will pay her how much it takes to fly her ass to Hollywood and accept it live. But the bitch is sneaky and will refuse anyway. But doesn’t exclude the fact she’ll earn this.
If not her, it’s clear Blanchett will be the next 3 timer and it can come during the first half of the following decade.
Chromatica and Fetch the Bolt Cutters AOTYs yeahJune 23, 2019 at 5:11 pm #1202949095
Cate Blanchett for me.
McDormand’s next role is as a woman living out of a van in Nomadland (by Chloe Zhao) which is baity subject matter. Fox Searchlight picked it up back in February but I reckon with all the changes from the Disney move it’ll probably get a limited release. (And yes it’s too soon after Three Billboards.)June 23, 2019 at 5:14 pm #1202949099
Maggie Smith is supporting in the Downton Abby theatrical. She’ll break new ground if she wins a 2nd supporting prize after having won once in best actress.
2 Lead, 1 Sup is the standard for 3-timers who win in both categories.June 23, 2019 at 6:09 pm #1202949131
Maggie Smith probably.
Jessica Lange should convince Ryan Murphy to create an Oscar-caliber role for her now that he has a Netflix deal. With Netflix behind her, she could win.
Cate Blanchett will obviously come through in the next decade but I don’t think any of the others stand a chance.June 23, 2019 at 9:41 pm #1202949232
Hilary Swank has been blacklisted by Hollywood for some reasons. It’s hard for her to even get a project, let alone an interesting one, so no.
As much as I totally support their first, I always pretend Sally Field and Glenda Jackson’s second Oscar never happened.
Jodie Foster is talented for sure, but she seems to be lazy or preoccupied with something else since Nell. Her directorial efforts aren’t even impressive. Just like Glenn Close who took a break in movie acting, it would take her a long time with some real baity roles to get her awards appeal back on track, so slim chance.
Diane Weist is not someone we are so familiar with. Unlike Jodie who is a pretty household name, she needs a much longer time to be in awards circuit’s radar again, and I don’t think she is even trying at this point.
As much as I wholeheartedly respect and adore Dame Maggie, her film roles have been pretty boring since the 21st century. Dame Judi has become much more versatile than her, and needs to get her second soon before Dame Maggie wins her third (which I pray to heavenly God won’t happen next year!!)
Jane Fonda is the same as Jodie, she also needs some time to revive her career.
So that’s leaves Frances McDormand, Jessica Lange and Cate Blanchett with the most prospects. Cate will certainly win a third, it’s just a matter of time. But I hope Jessica will win her third before she retires! Hopefully her recent TV accolades still keep people’s attention on her and catapult her into a third Oscar!June 24, 2019 at 12:07 am #1202949285
Five have won three Academy Awards: Ingrid Bergman (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress award), Jack Nicholson (two Best Actor awards and one Best Supporting Actor award), Walter Brennan (three Best Supporting Actor awards), Meryl Streep (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress awardJune 24, 2019 at 5:03 am #1202949455
Hilary Swank has been blacklisted by Hollywood for some reason.
Dianne Weist is not someone we are so familiar with.
Swank won her first Oscar and couldn’t become a box office draw. She won a second Oscar everyone resented her for due to beating Bening again.
Dianne Weist could easily win a third Oscar since all of her nods are in supporting. Age is a non-issue in supporting so concern would never be about younger competitors.
