    I always have pondered it, and some years its easier than others to imagine, but who might have gotten the 6th slot had the Academy nominated 6 actors instead of 5, kind of like the Emmys? I’ve come up with some in some categories, but years and years ago are what really intrigues me, when we didn’t have the SAGs and Critics Choice to help us out.

    Haha. Well, I know you’re kidding but you could be right about several; The Talented Mr Ripley, Little Fish, Ben Button, Babel, The Good German. And a few of her other films which kinda ‘bombed’ or were overlooked but in which she was very good.

    Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin)- still a HORRIBLE snub as she deserved to be in over Close and Williams.

    These are only recent ones and are probably obvious (in some cases) but I enjoy doing this type of thing.

     

    85th Academy Awards: John Hawkes (The Sessions), Marion Cotillard (Rust & Bone), Leonardo DiCaprio (Django Unchained), Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy)

    Not sure about Nicole Kidman but I think it would have been between her and Maggie Smith (Best Exotic Marigold Hotel)

     

    84th Academy Awards: Michael Fassbender (Shame), Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin), Albert Brooks (Drive), Shailene Woodley (The Descendants)

     

    83rd Academy Awards: Ryan Gosling (Blue Valentine), Julianne Moore (The Kids Are All Right), Andrew Garfield (The Social Network), Mila Kunis (Black Swan)

    Some I could imagine (though there it’s possible they were quite a ways down on the Academy’s radar):

    1998 – Jim Carrey (The Truman Show)

    1992 – Tim Robbins (The Player)

    1974 – Gene Hackman (The Conversation)

    1967 – Sidney Poitier (In the Heat of the Night)

    I agree. I have always found the 1974 contest between suspected fifth place finishers The Conversation and Murder on the Orient Express to be intriguing. The Conversation with a Palme d’Or win and various critic prizes including a second place finish for Hackman with NYFCC to be in direct contest with the crowd pleaser Murder on the Orient Express.

    In the final Oscar tally, The Conversation landed three nominations – Picture, Screenplay and Sound. Murder on the Orient Express received six for Actor, Supporting Actress (win), Screenplay, Cinematography, Score, and Costume. 

    Albert Finney performance as detective Hercule Poirot apparently snagged Hackman’s nomination as Actor, while Murder on the Orient Express lost its expected Picture nomination to The Conversation. This race tends to dispute the long held assumption that actors sway the vote. If so, Murder on the Orient Express would have prevailed in the Best Picture nominations since Finney received the nod over Hackman.

    It may simply have been that The Conversation benefitted from the coincidence that Watergate tappers used the same equipment used in the film, a similarity which received a lot of press at the time. 

    1974 is a race in which the nomination vote tallies would be fascinating.

    The Conversation is one of the best movies of the 70s and easily one of my all tive favorites. I knew it had been nommed for Best Picture and assumed by default that Hackman had been nominated. Can’t believe he didn’t. Obviously the best performance of his career.

    Also kinda shocked that David Shire wasn’t nominated for Score, which is as vital to the movie as the screenplay, set design and Hackman. I mean listen to this… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzoSUH8NQoM

    F*cking gorgeous yet so unsettling… Always reminds me of that scene where he visits Teri Garr (?), his supposed girlfriend in this really claustrophobic, underground apartment. Shit this movie is so perfect.
