    One of my hobbies is going into Wikipedia rabbit holes and among them is finding out some pretty interesting (to me, anyway) stats and records. This year’s Oscar nominations are about to come out in a couple of weeks so I thought, instead of waiting for the interesting stats and records from the nominations, I can just list the POTENTIAL stats and records down and check them off when the nominations come out. I’m listing them from most likely to least likely but within the realm of possibility.

    – If Roma gets a Cinematography nomination, it would be the first time they nominate someone being a DP of his own film.

    – If Roma gets a Best Picture nomination, Gabriela Rodriguez becomes the first Latina to get a Best Picture nomination and only the third woman of color to do so (the others being Oprah and Kimberly Steward of Manchester by the Sea)

    — If Alfonso Cuaron gets nominations for Picture, Director, Screenplay, Editing, Cinematography and Foreign Language Film, he would tie Walt Disney as most nominations for an individual in one year with six and the first one to do so in six DIFFERENT categories. (The fact that Disney got his nominations/wins at a time when he could get away with just slapping his name on stuff as a producer, take credit and the Oscar even without being the main creative force behind the films, Cuaron’s achievement is more impressive)

    – If Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse gets a Best Animated Feature nomination, Peter Ramsey will be the first African-American to get a nomination in this category.

    – If Lady Gaga gets Best Actress nomination, she’d only be the fourth openly LGBTQ actor to get an acting nomination post-coming out (Jaye Davidson, Ian McKellen and Angelina Jolie are the others)*

    – She’ll also be the second to get both an acting and songwriting Oscar nominations the same year following Mary J. Blige last year.

    – If Rami Malek gets a Best Actor nomination, it would be only the second time an actor of Egyptian descent is nominated. (The other being Omar Sharif)

    – If Spike Lee and/or Barry Jenkins gets a Screenplay nomination, they’d be the first African-Americans to receive multiple screenplay nominations.

    – If Timothee Chalamet and/or Lucas Hedges gets nominated, they’d be the first male under 25 to get two nominations since Sal Mineo.

    – If Black Panther gets a Production Design nomination, Hannah Beachler will be the first African-American AND African American woman to get a Production Design nomination.

    – If Black Panther gets a Costume Design nomination, Ruth E. Carter would tie Octavia Spencer and Viola Davis as most nominated African-American woman.**

    – If Bao gets nominated for Best Animated Short, the director will be the first Asian woman nominated in this category.

    – If Barry Jenkins and/or Steve McQueen gets a Best Director nomination, he’d be the first African-American to get more than one Best Director nomination.

    – if Barry Jenkins and/or Ryan Coogler and/or Steve McQueen gets a Best Director nomination along with sure-thing Spike Lee, it’d be the first time more than one African-American is nominated for Best Director.

    *Unless in the unlikely event that Lucas Hedges manages to get in for either one of his roles, then they’d be fourth and fifth. If Lucas Hedges gets in for Boy Erased, he’d only be the third openly LGBTQ actor to get nominated for an LGBTQ role.

    *Unless Viola Davis somehow gets in for Widows, then SHE’D be the most nominated while Carter and Spencer will tie for second.

    I’ll add more when I find some more.

    I think your thinking is much more original and inspired than mine, but Close’s Triple Crown!

    Does Roma being nominated for Foreign Language film count as a nomination for Cuaron? As far as I know, technically speaking, if a film won, the director accepts the award and his name is engraved on it along with the country’s name (post-2014) but it really belongs to the country that won it.

    Either way, Cuaron could walk away with 4 or 5 Oscars (3 for sure) that night. The record, of course, is Disney with 4.

    Also, I’m pretty sure Linda Hunt was out since the late-70s, a couple of years before she won Best Supporting Actress.

    Great list! Most of them will happen too! (:

    If Crazy Rich Asians gets a BP nomination would it be the 2nd film with an all Asian (Asian-American and other Asians) nominated? (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon would be the first, I can’t think of any others?).

    If Roma wins, it would be the first foreign language film to win Best Picture.

    I’d like to add something about Chalamet.

    If he gets nominated, he’ll be the youngest actor to score consecutive Oscar noms at the age of 23. He will be beating James Dean’s record. Dean was nominated in 1955 (East of Eden) and 1956 (Giant). He was 24 at the time of his death but if he was alive in 1956 he would have been 26.

    Also, Timmy will be the second youngest over-all just behind Angela Lansbury who was 20 when she was nominated in 1945 for The Picture of Dorian Gray (nominated the previous year for Gaslight). Jennifer Lawrence is currently the second youngest at 23 years 5 months and 1 day (nominated and won in 2012 for Silver Linings Playbook and in 2013 for American Hustle). Timmy will be 23 years 0 months 26 days during nomination day.

    Best Picture winner The Last Emperor. I think Peter O’Toole was the only non-Asian actor in that movie at least the only one of any importance. O’Toole was really only there in the beginning of the film.

    Steve McQueen is not African-American. He’s British.

    That film was directed by the late great Bernardo Bertolucci, who was Italian not Asian.

    If Lucas Hedges gets in for Boy Erased, he’d only be the third openly LGBTQ actor to get nominated for an LGBTQ role. 

    Hedges is not LGBTQ, but he’s also “not totally straight.”

    With a single Oscar win Close joins Maggie Smith at having the most triple crown wins at 7.

    He has said he isn’t straight, or bi, or gay, but he doesn’t have a label for it yet. That that is in the realm of LGBTQ+.

    Some odds & ends

    * Steven Spielberg’s films have earned more Oscar noms (130) than any other director, so if READY PLAYER ONE sees any action, that will just add to his total (the living director closest to his tally–Scorsese–is still 50 nods behind).

    * Meryl Streep’s films have earned more nominations (109) than any other actress, so MARY POPPINS RETURNS will just add to that total–though likely not enough for her to reach Ward Bond’s 117, the all-time leader among actors.

    * Star Wars and James Bond are currently tied for most Oscar-nominated franchise installments, at 9. If SOLO gets a nod, that will raise SW to 10. The Marvel Cinematic Universe* could also reach 10 if both BLACK PANTHER and AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR get nods.

    (*this is separate from the Spider-Man and X-Men franchises, the former of which would get a boost with SM INTO THE SV)

    * Alfonso Cuaron is well-positioned to be the first person to ever earn 5 Oscar nominations for the same film.

    * John Ratzenberger has been a cast member in 12 Animated Feature nominees, a record likely never to be beaten. INCREDIBLES 2 will put him at 13.
