    Only three male actors have ever won 3 Oscars in acting categories (Walter Brennan, Jack Nicholson, Daniel Day-Lewis).

    There are ten living male actors who have won 2 Oscars. Which of these men do you think is most likely to become the next 3-time Oscar winner?

    I recognize that some of these men have virtually no chance of winning again, but included all eligible names.

    I chose Denzel. He was dang close with Fences and knows how to pick roles that showcase him.

    I hope Tom Hanks can “Iron Lady” his way into another win in the next few years or at least in his lifetime.

    Tom Hanks has a pretty impressive resume since his 2 Oscar wins, but unlike Streep, who seems to get nominated every time she puts out another movie, for whatever reason, Hanks hasn’t been able to score an Oscar nomination since Cast Away in 2000. And it isn’t for lack of Oscar-y movies:
    Road to Perdition (2002)
    Catch Me If You Can (2002)
    Charlie Wilson’s War (2007)
    Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (2011)
    Captain Phillips (2013)
    Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
    Bridge of Spies (2015)
    Sully (2016)
    The Post (2017)
    not to mention Toy Story 3 (2010) and 4 (2019).

    Denzel Washington, on the other hand, has scored 4 acting nominations since Tom Hanks fell off the Oscars’ radar (giving him a total of 8, to Tom’s 5).

    I would love to see Tom Hanks win a 3rd Oscar someday, but his lack of nominations in recent years isn’t promising. Perhaps A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood could land him his 6th nomination, but after his string of roles playing real-life people (in Captain Phillips, Saving Mr. Banks, Bridge of Spies, Sully, and The Post) resulting in 0 noms, I’m not holding my breath.

    Yeah, Tom Hanks needs to have 12 post-win Oscar losses for him to “iron lady” anything

    Kevin Spacey will never get it and we all know why.

    Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman and Sean Penn seem to have retired.

    Mahershala Ali, Tom Hanks, Michael Caine should feel lucky themselves to even have two Oscars. I always just pretend they only won one instead, and still not deserving.

    Robert DeNiro and Christoph Waltz does have slim chance considering the terrible projects they have picked lately.

    Yes, the one with the most prospect of winning a third is Denzel. But I think there will be someone else outside this list winning 3 Oscars.

    I voted for Denzel, but i do feel like Tom Hanks is one to watch. He is constantly snubbed, but I feel that will only help him getting a 3rd Oscar.

    I think that the next Tom Hanks nomination, if it comes with a nice project, will bring back the stories of him being snubbed and this whole Meryl Streep storyline where he hasn’t been rewarded in ages (25 years now) will help him out a lot.

    Denzel is the only other logical choice.

    Spacey would’ve been a choice since it’s also been a while since he’s been nominated/won and I think that a really good supporting nod could’ve done the trick. But now that’s over.

    DeNiro could’ve won with Silver Linings very easily if he had a bigger or showier role. Or if the film had been bigger at the Oscars. So he remains an option has he does work a lot.

    Waltz and Ali simply shouldn’t win any more Oscars. Period. At least not in the next 10-15 years.

    Don’t see Caine or Hoffman winning anymore. Hackman is retired. Haven’t even seen Sean Penn in a film since…I don’t even remember.

    Caine, De Niro, Hackman, Hanks, Hoffman, Penn and Spacey are Not happening.
    I can see Waltz winning with another Tarantino film and no one expected Ali to win a second oscar at all, let alone two years later so everything is possible with him.Maybe any of them can pull a Brennan.
    Washington is the best choice though.He was already close to get his third with Fences and even got another nomination the year later.Sooner or later he’s getting another oscar.

    Honestly, I feel like the combo of Hanks and Mr. Rogers might net Hanks his third 🙂

    It is interesting that Hollywood doesn’t even consider snubbing Meryl for anything remotely baity and the opposite has happened to Hanks. I mean the Mr. Banks/Bridge of Spies/Sully/Post rally is pretty incredible. Not to say he was more/less deserving of any of the actual nominees (I honestly can’t remember them right now), but it’s fascinating how amongst two legends, one is met with basic indifference fatigue and the other almost blind recognition.

    problem with Tom Hanks is he’s always the good guy irl and the chars he plays and doesn’t switch it up so it’s basically Tom Hanks with different clothes and maybe a buzz cut lol in every movie. (Also he hasn’t done a supporting role in like forever for Oscar campaigning purposes) Meryl has been able to change accents and transform and play diff chars lol that won’t be similar to each other or 6 other of their own movies.

    Leo in.. 40 years from now. He needs to get that 2nd one first. But I think Hollywood has sufficed with Nicholson and Day-Lewis. They need a 2nd female 3-time Oscar winner, probably Blanchett.

    Excellent point. I’ve always wanted to see Hanks stray away from playing the nice guy/hero, and perhaps more of a psychotic role. Anthony Hopkins, Heath Ledger, Javier Bardem, Daniel Day-Lewis, Forest Whitaker, Denzel Washington, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christian Bale, Jared Leto, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and countless others have won Oscars for roles that were very much against type of the roles they usually play.

    I think neither. Christian Bale is my guy for getting a 3rd Oscar. He was really close this year to get a 2nd one. He will continue to get great roles and getting better with age. Therefor my answer is Christian Bale
