    I’m doing a write-up and need your help, Derbyites!

    Supporting Actress seems to have three locks this year:
    – Jessica Chastain, The Tree of Life
    – Vanessa Redgrave, Coriolanus
    – Octavia Spencer, The Help

    About the only thing those three films have in common is the fact they contain three very different performances by Chastain.

    In what other years did a category contain a nominee that was in another nominee’s film? Performers from the same film nominated in the same category don’t count unless it’s a scenario like 2006 Supporting Actress.

    Here’s what we’ve got so far:

    2006 Supporting Actress
    – Adrianna Barazza, Babel
    – Cate Blanchett, Notes on a Scandal
    – Rinko Kikuchi, Babel

    Blanchett was in Babel but none of the ladies could hold off Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls).

    2002 Lead Actress
    – Nicole Kidman, The Hours
    – Julianne Moore, Far From Heaven

    Despite being seen twice by voters, Moore couldn’t hold off Kidman.

    —–

    2002 Supporting Actor
    – Ed Harris, The Hours
    – John C. Reilly, Chicago

    Two great performances but neither strong enough to stop Chris Cooper in Adaptation.

    What else ya got?!

    I have Jessica Chastain in my personal predictions for best supporting actress for “The Tree of Life” but do not think she is any kind of lock. As she was cited for three movies, two of which are likely best picture nominees, her vote could get spread too thin. I ultimately think Chastain will make it in but think Shailene Woodley more of a lock for the nomination since she has only one film to contend with and it is a surefire best picture nominee.

    Also, as a suggestion, since you’re talking about Moore being seen twice in 2002 because of Nicole Kidman, then you should also add instances like Moore in 99 where she was also seen twice thanks to Cruise in Magnolia. This is not the Emmys where certain people only judge certain categories, everybody is supposed to see everything.

    If Moore hadn’t been nominated for The Hours, voters would’ve still seen Meryl Streep twice because of Kidman and specially because of Ed Harris.

    George Clooney was also seen twice in 2005 because of David Strathairn in Good Night and Good Luck (we know he was judge because of his writing and directing duties there too).

    Interesting thread Morgan. These collaborative efforts are so constructive and such fun!. The examples I’ve thought of have been covered, but I’ll bet there are others.

    Btw I’m not convinced that Chastain is such a slamdunk for ToL. It’s looking much better for her now, but there’s still that ‘dilution’ factor that could derail her by the end.
