    Inspired by the “Six Spot”/”Six Circuit” series of posts on AwardsCircuit (https://www.awardscircuit.com/tag/six-spot/), who do you think came closest to getting nominated for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor for each year? (I’ll be going back as far as 2000 with my guesses)

    (Note 1: For instances such as 2006, where DiCaprio probably came closest for The Departed in Lead but couldn’t have been nominated alongside his already nominated performance, I’ll be going with whoever I think came closest after them)

    (Note 2: If there is already a topic like this somewhere else on here that I missed, just add this to that)

    • 2001: Gene Hackman, The Royal Tenenbaums
    • 2002: Richard Gere, Chicago
    • 2003: Tom Cruise, The Last Samurai
    • 2004: Paul Giamatti, Sideways

    • 2016: Joel Edgerton, Loving

    • 2007: Tommy Lee Jones, No Country for Old Men
    • 2008: James Franco, Milk
    • 2009: Alfred Molina, An Education

    I think Armie Hammer probably got more votes in 2017 than Stuhlbarg, but I could be wrong.

    It was tough for me to pick between the two of them, they were probably #6 and #7. The only reason I’d give slight edge to Stuhlbarg would be that I’m guessing several people voted him as a ‘body of work’ vote considering he was in three BP nominees that year, and CMBYN was his most Oscar-y role of the three.

    Javier Bardem for Skyfall was propably closer with his BAFTA/BFCA/SAG noms than DiCaprio for Django.

    Also I’m sure Hoffman wasn’t close to a nomination for Almost Famous, I think Gary Oldman was 6th for The Contender.

    Those were both ones that I had a hard time deciding between the ones I put and the ones that you said – my only doubt for Bardem is that I’m guessing lots of voters weren’t going to vote for a performance in a Bond movie. And I think Oldman probably would’ve been nominated if he hadn’t stirred up a fuss at the time about his character getting ‘ruined’ in editing and creating that controversy. Probably still came close though, and he and Hoffman both would’ve been beloved character actors with no recognition at the time, so they both could’ve ridden that wave. I could still definitely see arguments for both of the ones you said though.

    Tried my hand at the 90s… it gets very difficult very fast once SAG goes away. I’m sure I got some of these very wrong, so if there’s a more likely one that I missed anywhere, just let me know.

    Good choices but I am not really seeing Pacino here. I like the movie very much but from what I remember, the movie wasn’t really liked and the kind of film that hardly gets nominated in that category.

    Steve Martin’s name pops up whenever it’s about missed nominations. I am wondering whether the academy liked him enough to have him just miss the line-up or whether they really did not like that kind of performance and thus, he wasn’t even close – not easy to figure out.
