    But these aren’t pattern from the past. For example, Alan Arkin has a gap of almost 40 years between his second and third nomination, the latter that just happened just as recent as 2007, therefore with different voters’ bodies. Once a nominee/winner, you’re still very much in the club even if you’re not a huge star. I mean, Donald Sutherland, the bigger movie/TV star with better box-office hits and baity projects can’t get arrested. Let’s not pretend the Academy doesn’t have an agenda of its own. How can you explain that a gap bigger than 70 years couldn’t reward a black actress in lead? They follow patterns. The voters might change, but their base and politics move at a glacial pace. And therefore they try to maintain their “values” and know their history, and that includes nominating or rewarding people who already have been invited way way back in the past.

    Hollywood itself is uninterested in nonwhite leading ladies. Talent and beauty has no bearing — they barely commission good scripts for female leads and when they do they’ll almost always be white in the creation. So the Academy not breaking their neck to be more inclusive in Best Actress has everything to do with the system itself not nurturing outliers.

    Viola Davis is absolutely winning Best Actress in the near future, even though I don’t think this year is the one she’ll do it.

    Julianne Moore and Frances McDormand feel likely to win Best Supporting Actress.

    Kathy Bates, Nicole Kidman, and Sandra Bullock all have potential but I think they might be likelier to win a second lead award.

    Sorry to be that guy, but I keep seeing this thread coming up and I’ve had a couple of glasses of wine – to the OP, the word binary doesn’t mean both or two. It just annoys me every time I see this. 🙁     Sorry! Yes I’m a total dick.

    Tilda has to be nominated again first. She’s been criminally underrated.
