    Except for Cape Fear I think a case could be made that he came in second on all his other nominations. What do you think?

    1976 Taxi Driver—this one is tough since Finch was such a sure thing. He probably got nearly all the votes. Holden was supposedly upset that Finch went lead since he thought that denied him a second Oscar. I’m not sure. I think De Niro was so hot he could have taken second. (Not sure how much Stallone would have figured into it.

    1978 The Deer Hunter—-again Voight is such a heavy front runner. Busey and Olivier were non-factors. Heaven Can Wait got a lot of nominations but I can’t see Beatty winning for such a light weight film although I guess it was highly acclaimed though I don’t think it holds up well.

    1990 Awakenings—-definitely second.

    1991 Cape Fear—probably fifth.

    2012 Silver Linings Playbook—very competitive category but I think he’d be second.

    76 is tough. Nobody was going to beat Finch. It’s a toss up who was second but it coukd have been Stallone. The nature of TD vs Rocky and the BP win could have put him ahead of RdN. I’d like to know where Giancarlo Giannini ended up because he didn’t deserve to be last.

    78 was JV’s time and I think he was an early favorite. RdN was very likely second, with WB close behind.

    1990 I’m not so sure he was second. That was a popular win for Costner and I think he was second. Awakenings was far from one of his best reviewed films.

    91 I agree was fifth. I’m glad he was nominated because he was awesome. Not an easy thing to do after his predecessor.

    2012 I think he was behind PSH and possibly Arkin in 4th.

    This was a lot of typing and my phone split the page in half before I was finished. I’m ready to donate it to someone I don’t like

    I agree with pook on everything, but PSH definitely had to be second in 2012 and I think Tommy Lee Jones was a very close third followed by De Niro fourth.

    lol. Great minds think alike. I thought PSH had a solid shot at winning.

    God I was so praying for him to win that night, that would have been an inspired choice albeit category fraud.

    76 – I’m thinking 3rd place. Stallone’s film was the big winner of the night, he had an acclaimed break through performance, he was also nominated for his writing, and De Niro had recently won. But it’s possible De Niro was in 2nd place. Whoever was the runner up probably wasn’t even close to Finch. The combination of a tour de force and a tragic death will do that.

    1978 – Probably 2nd. An acclaimed performance in the year’s big winner

    1990 – Maybe 2nd, but I’m gonna guess it was Costner that year. I don’t know a whole lot about Awakenings, but it was a strong year for De Niro since he was also in Goodfellas, so he could’ve been the runner up, but Costner’s film was clearly very popular that year, netting him two Oscars. It’s definitely possible he wasn’t too far away from a 3rd.

    1991 – Probably 5th. It was a strong year where all the other nominees were in bigger contenders than De Niro.

    2012 – This is one is tough, but I’m gonna guess 3rd. Arkin was definitely last, but I think any of the other nominees could’ve been runner up. My best guess is Tommy Lee Jones. He was regarded as a huge scene stealer in one of the year’s biggest films and won the SAG award where Waltz wasn’t nominated as he was submitted in lead. However, he might’ve been hurt by people seeing himself as playing too similar a character as his other roles. Hoffman benefited from being an acclaimed lead placed in supporting and from being his film’s best shot at winning, cause Joaquin and Adams weren’t gonna stop DDL and Hathaway’s sweeps. But he was also in a film that couldn’t break through in any categories outside of acting, and all the other nominees were in more popular films that were up for Best Picture. So I think he was in 4th, while De Niro’s genuinely likable and hilarious work in a very well received contender put him 3rd.

    I’d also think Costner was second in 1990. What a lackluster lineup though.

    If it helps, Jeremy Irons thought DeNiro was his closest competition. He said so in his SNL monologue. He hosted the Saturday before the Oscars.

    Don’t know why I remember this so well.

    Ray Liotta should have won for Goodfellas!

    So strange he wasn’t even nominated (nor at the Globes either.)

    He was even a bit overdue after having been omitted for Something Wild a few years before.

    I forget, but didn’t they submit him as supporting? I know De Niro got nominated in lead at Bafta, which is very strange cause he’s clearly supporting in Goodfellas.

    1990 I actually think he was either 3rd or 4th – Costner was 2nd, and 3/4 was probably a very close race between De Niro and Depardieu, who was playing a larger than life, very capital-a Acting role (which had already won another actor the Oscar forty years prior) as well as being in Green Card, which won him the Globe for Comedy, that same year.

    Arkin is always trashed for his nomination, but he was riding a tide of popularity and both he and Goodman were the best things about that film. I’m not convinced he was last and it might have been RdN
