    If either of Sunset Boulevard/Hillbilly Elegy get released next year and turn out decent, Close for sure, but they have to hurry before the hype train she rode in 2018 leaves the station. Past that, I think Amy Adams might get to 8 before anyone else on this list, depending on whether or not she wins for nom #7. Blanchett’s only upcoming film project is Lucy and Desi, which should be sure-fire number 8 but it’s been in limbo for a while and has no attached director.

    Amy Adams is having 6 right now so she has to be double nominated in 2021, which I just can’t imagine will happen… The actresses with 7 nominations have more prospects than her: Cate – either Bernadette or Lucille Ball biopic, Kate – Ammonite, Glenn – Hillbilly Elegy or Sunset, Judi – Cats (if the Academy loves that movie and she coattails)

    Right now, I think it’s Cate. But Cate, Kate, and Amy will reach 10+ nominations in their careers.

    Once Adams secures her overdue they’ll have an easier time denying her additional nods because her count is already inflated for someone of her modest talent.

    In terms of who will get 8 the fastest:
    1. Close
    2. Blanchett
    3. Winslet
    4. Dench
    5. Someone with 6 nominations (Adams, Smith/Burstyn/Redgrave)
    6. Someone with less (McDormand, Lawrence, Moore, Williams)
    6. Fonda

    Close has the vehicles to get one / two noms next year.

    Blanchett has the chops to score another nomination. Considering her luck with continually being nominated in quick succession (2004 to 2006 to 2007 twice, then again from 2013 to 2015), it is almost guaranteed that she’ll return very soon. She has yet to go more than six years without scoring another nomination, so I’d bank on one in the next year or so. However, she does seem to be gearing towards television, perhaps for a shot at Emmy consideration. Seeing that television fame has helped actors skyrocket to Oscar nominations / wins, her choices could be pragmatically done to boost her chances at scoring another trophy.

    Winslet is similar to Blanchett, but she’ll need to readjust her campaign strategies. She’s not undeniable, as she doesn’t have an overdue factor and the Woody Allen stigma probably won’t help her either. She’ll be back; it just might take longer.

    Judi Dench just needs Stephen Frears to make another solid movie and she’ll probably score a nod. She’s an inevitable nominee in the Best Supporting Actress category in her later years. Cats will not be the vehicle to get her there, but she’s beloved and can easily snag another nom.

    Fonda’s movie star status has diminished significantly in the last few decades. She’s probably gonna stick with television for the time being. I won’t rule out a future nomination, but her career trajectory seems to be plateauing in that realm.

    On another note, I see Denzel Washington nabbing a few more nominations. He will definitely score at least 10. Likewise, he might be able to break Nicholson’s record and nab 12+ nominations. He probably has a few more leading roles in him, with a whole era of supporting nominations open for the year following. Al Pacino has more of an uphill battle, since his contention for The Irishman after 27 years of little attention from the Academy isn’t even a lock nomination, so I’d say he’s either peaked or has one more to go. De Niro has a better shot at scoring more nominations, but he won’t get to 10 either.

    What a wonderful insight! I totally agree with this, and sometimes, not winning an Oscar can be the best thing happening to your career!

    Washington’s done with supporting campaigns. He’ll Streep it in Best Actor whether they nominate him or not.

    On the actor side, if Joker gets a BP nomination, Grammy Winner Bradley Cooper would have 8 Oscar noms lol.

    if u told me 10 years ago that a supporting character from The Hangover would get even 2 Oscar noms, I would’ve just laughed at you yet here we are lol.

    She isn’t hitting 30, but 25 is totally in reach for her. I wouldn’t expect too many past that. Winning a 4th might also kill her chances of garnering more nods, so she’s either getting nominated at least 4 – 5 more times, or she’s winning on an upcoming one and ending a record-breaking run. That said, she could be the first five-time winner.

    A 5-time winner would mean more than 30 nods. And I don’t feel like there is any urgency to go there. Being good isn’t enough with Streep especially when The Iron Lady win relied on it being 29 years since Sophie’s Choice.
