    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 Actress and Best Supporting Actress for each year? (I’ll be going back as far as 2000 with my guesses)

    (Note 1: For instances such as 2015, where Vikander probably came closest for Ex Machina in Supporting but couldn’t have been nominated alongside her 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)

    Collette was campaigned Supporting for Little Miss Sunshine and I think she was 6th over Emily Blunt.

    Also I could see Audrey Tautou being 6th for Amelie over Watts, she was a BAFTA nominee in what would be a Best Picture nominee in an expanded lineup.

    Angelina Jolie was likely 6th in 2008. If you would’ve had a voting breakdown, Kate Winslet probably would’ve been top 5 twice The Reader and Revolutionary Road.

    She was likely disqualified due to the double acting nominee rule allowing 6th place Jolie to be nominated.

    I think Leo was 6th esp given Jolie already being snubbed the previous year and being an omgmoviestar without a lead nom yet

    I can definitely see that being the case – however, the five that did end up getting into Lead that year were a pretty impenetrable five the entire season, and Collette was the only one from any other film that I could see maaaaybe upsetting due to her GG nom in Lead, although she was still pretty far behind (hypothetically) in sixth place there. Tautou/Watts was another tough decision, and you’re probably more right than I am there honestly.

    Angelina Jolie was likely 6th in 2008. If you would’ve had a voting breakdown, Kate Winslet probably would’ve been top 5 twice The Reader and Revolutionary Road. She was likely disqualified due to the double acting nominee rule allowing 6th place Jolie to be nominated.

    Yeah, I didn’t want to get too far into the technicalities there (probably the same thing in Supporting that year too, with Winslet getting into the top five for The Reader for both, with Adams being the true 6th there), but I decided to go with the sixth nominee that could have actually been nominated in all cases (see alsoL Best Actress 2015, where Vikander and Mara were probably in the top five for both, but got shafted in lead for Lawrence and Rampling)

    As much as I love Bjork, I don’t think she was ever in serious awards consideration last 2000. “Dancer in the Dark” is certainly a more impactful film than “Breaking the Waves”, yet Watson was able to receive a nod for the latter despite being relatively unknown.

    I guess most voters didn’t really think much about Bjork’s performance, other than it’s Bjork playing herself. Renee Zellweger in “Nurse Betty” and Michelle Yeoh in “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” were probably the next in line.

    I feel like Blunt has been 6th multiple times.

    Isn’t Sally Field more likely for 1985 and either of Jamie Lee Curtis or Shirley MacLaine for 1988?

    Otherwise I’ve only seen Nuts from that list, which one of the rest is essential to check out?

    Again, tried to do the 90s. I don’t think I’ll be attempting anything earlier than these ones, since the first half is already so difficult without SAG to inform my picks. 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.

    Glenn Close had limited screentime in Reversal of Fortune so I’m not sure she was pushed as lead at all.
