Looks like Julianne will finally get a gold man. Who would you say would be the most overdue now?
Overdue and still in the game for a win (been nominated in the last 20 years and have more than one nomination)
1. Glenn Close
2. Annette Bening
3. Amy Adams
4. Michelle Williams
5. Laura Linney
6. Joan Allen
7. Viola Davis
8. Jessica Chastain
9. Laura Dern
10. Naomi Watts
Honorable mention: Emily Watson, Brenda Blethyn, Julie Walters, Diane Lane, Kristin Scott Thomas and Imelda Staunton (even though they have only been nominated once)
All is Lost? (women certainly overdue and should have won but is it too late? Haven’t been nominated in 20+ years, some film careers all but dead, multiple nominations)
1. Sigourney Weaver
2. Michelle Pfeiffer
3. Debra Winger
4. Judy Davis
5. Gena Rowlands
6. Jane Alexander
7. Miranda Richardon
8. Diane Ladd

10. Marsha Mason/Bette Midler/Winona Ryder (tie)
Honorable mention (sole nominees): Angela Bassett, Alfre Woodard, Stockard Channing
Any others?February 19, 2015 at 4:24 pm #179065
Glenn Close, Glenn Close, and Glenn Close
What happened to that Nick Nolte-Glenn Close ageing rocker movie? That sounded very baity.
I would add Piper Laurie to your All is Lost? list.February 19, 2015 at 4:24 pm #179066
Annette Bening is now the most overdue from this list as I see it.February 19, 2015 at 4:33 pm #179067
I kinda agree with your first list. Even if Julianne doesn’t win sunday, Glenn Close will still be the most overdue actress out there.
Amy Adams, Michelle Williams and Jessica Chastain are poised to win in the following 5-8 years.February 19, 2015 at 4:38 pm #179068
I find the “all is lost” list rather silly, as Glenn Close, Sally Field, Laura Dern, etc proved, the right part can get someone a nomination after a very long gap.February 19, 2015 at 4:43 pm #179069
Glenn Close, Annette Bening, Michelle Pfeiffer, Michelle Williams, Laura Linney, Joan Allen, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, and Sigourney Weaver.February 19, 2015 at 4:45 pm #179070
Glenn Close and Annette Bening.
All is not lost for Michelle Pfieffer. She was the sought after for Still Alice (and turned it down for some reason) so she’s not completely off of Hollywood’s radar.February 19, 2015 at 5:13 pm #179071
I’m not sure how Viola Davis is overdue for an Oscar (we only really know her name for a few years, and although she earned two Oscar nominations, it doesn’t mean that she’s overdue for one based on her filmography and acting career. Jacki Weaver also earned two nominations, so it means she’s overdue as well? I don’t think so. Jessica Chastain is not overdue either, she’s around for exactly 4 years. She needs to work a decades to call her overdue I consider someone overdue not based on her nominations, but the entire career.
Previous nominees: Annette Bening. Michelle Pfeiffer. Sigourney Weaver. Glenn Close. Cicely Tyson. Amy Adams. Michelle Williams. Laura Dern. Naomi Watts. Laura Linney. Julie Walters. Imelda Staunton. Kristin Scott Thomas and Alfre Woodard. They pretty much overdue for an acting Oscar.
And some non-nominees: Gong Li. Jamie Lee Curtis.February 19, 2015 at 5:17 pm #179072
Anette Benning and Amy Adams for sure. I don’t think it’s too late for Sigourney Weaver and Angela Bassett. If Alien 5 is a return in quality to the first two movies Weaver could get in for that, and AHS might have brought more roles for Bassett.February 19, 2015 at 5:53 pm #179073

– Angela Bassett
– Annette Bening
– Glenn Close
– Laura Dern

– Naomi Watts
– Sigourney Weaver
– Amy Adams
– Jessica Chastain
– Viola Davis
– Diane Lane
– Laura Linney
– Michelle Williams
– Diane Ladd
– Angela Lansbury
– Gena Rowlands
– Cicely TysonFebruary 19, 2015 at 5:55 pm #179074
Poor Annette 🙁February 19, 2015 at 6:49 pm #179075
I would love to see Annette Benning and Amy Adams win in the next view years.February 19, 2015 at 6:52 pm #179076
Unfortunately when I think of Glenn Close I feel like she belongs in the all is lost list. She will continue to deliver amazing work for as long as she is working I don’t think she will ever gain the support she deserves. The media is never going to give her the ‘overdue’ coverage they have given Moore or Streep (when she hadn’t won in 20 years). I would love to be wrong but the closest I see her to the Oscars stage is a lifetime achievement award in 10 years.February 19, 2015 at 7:12 pm #179077

I hold out hope. Her recent issue was the timing of Albert Nobbs. 2011 was a highly competitve year, so much so that poor Tilda Swinton was robbed of a nomination for We Need To Talk About Kevin. It was a two-way race between Meryl Streep and Viola Davis with an outside shot from Michelle Williams. Close and Mara weren’t even in the equation, likely. But then the very next year, Lead Actress was dead. Jessica Chastain was hurt from the backlash against Zero Dark Thirty. Emmanuelle Riva had hardly any precursor support, except for BAFTA. Quvenzhane Wallis and Naomi Watts felt like category-filler. And Jennifer Lawrence was a superstar on her second nomination, this time for a good yet sort of supporting role, so she won. Had Close held off a single year, she would have swept that season. No way would Lawrence had won with Close in the running. And then the very next year Lawrence would have bumped out Lupita Nyong’o, for both her performance in American Hustle and a consolation prize. Funny how the timing of these things works out.February 19, 2015 at 7:38 pm #179078
I’m hoping “The Guest” with Glenn Close will be a winner. Looks very baity and it has a very good cast. Problem is, she might be going against Amy Adams playing Janis Joplin and Anne Hathaway with Judy Garland. I’m very torn because those are literally my three favorite actresses. I’m hopig the Janis Joplin biopic will be pushed to 2017, so Close can sweep the year before. @Gone_Guy I completely agree with you on the timing with Albert Nobbs. I actually just saw that film last week and Close and Mcteer were incredible. The scene where they put on dresses and were running along the beach almost put me to tears. It’s shame it wasn’t pushed the next year.
