Went through past winners earlier and the last time both winners in the leading categories had already been awarded previously was in 1994. That seems to indicate that either of the two current front-runners, Hopkins or Davis, will not win this year.
What do you think of this and who do you think is likelier to win of the two? Also who do you think can beat Hopkins/Davis?

That’s not true. Tom Hanks and Jessica Lange won their 2nd Oscars on the same night.October 8, 2020 at 11:03 pm #1203768080
Thanks for the info. Not sure how I missed that. I edited the original post. I still think 25+ years is a trend.October 8, 2020 at 11:13 pm #1203768082
They seem about even to me. Both are well loved by audiences and their peers.October 8, 2020 at 11:17 pm #1203768084
Is this poll rigged because I tried like 4 times to vote for Viola and it wouldn’t work, but as soon as I click on Hopkins it somehow counted my vote towards him…October 9, 2020 at 2:08 am #1203768156
Sir Anthony, and it’s not even close. He has this in the bag.

Anthony. Has it in the bag.

I’d say Hopkins because there’s still a chance that Andra Day comes along with her big bait and wins.October 9, 2020 at 4:11 am #1203768246
This poll is premature. Should’ve waited until Ma Rainey has at least premiered, otherwise they’re on uneven footing.October 9, 2020 at 6:11 am #1203768376
I can’t vote for Davis and I refuse to vote for Hopkins. Oh well.October 9, 2020 at 6:36 am #1203768412
Ahem. Historically speaking one of them is extremely disadvantaged compared to the other, I’ll let you guess which one
Best Actress - Viola Davis, Frances McDormand

I’m thinking Hopkins. Mainly because Viola has much more competition with McDormand, Kirby, Pfeiffer, and a few others. Hopkins really only has Kaluuya to worry about. And even then, his film could still be delayed or miss eligibility.
