    I’m thinking of stuff like Amadeus, Terms of Endearment, The Turning Point, Network. (any other near recent double nominees in lead?)

    How do you think they’d have made out?

    I know William Holden had hoped Peter Finch would go supporting. Finch still would have won but I’m not sure if Holden would have. Stallone could have taken it or De Niro (but he had just won and Taxi Driver may have been to violent for them back then.)

    Amadeus is odd since The Killing Fields actually did split their nominees and put Ngor in supporting even though he is as much a lead as Waterston. Ngor probably would have still beat Hulce.

    Terms of Endearment is hard. I’d bet there would be a push to put Debra Winger in supporting (see August:Osage County) and she might have won.

    Turning Point I don’t really know too well. Is one part smaller?

    Another one I just thought of………I bet back then they would have wanted Joan Crawford to go supporting for Baby Jane. I doubt her ego would have taken it (and it would have ruined a really good episode of Feud.)

    MacLaine and Bancroft are pretty clear co leads if ever there have been in Turning Point. Even if they had gone that route I doubt anyone was beating Redgrave for Julia since she was due after having a few losses and the film itself was well regarded.

    I can’t fathom any of Bancroft, Crawford, MacLaine or Winger allowing themselves to be pushed Supporting. Ditto Baxter for All About Eve.

    Perhaps Clift could’ve swallowed a Supporting push for From Here to Eternity? The mere thought of Kate Hepburn ever being Supporting sounds odds but perhaps a push there for Suddenly, Last Summer could’ve worked.

    Oh and, nuts as it sounds, Stallone was indeed probably runner-up to Finch. I don’t think Holden (my personal preference) was really seen in contention at all for the win.

    THE OSCAR 100 (#30-26): Al Pacino, Edith Evans, Judy Garland, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

    Agreed regarding Stallone. There seems to have been a lot of goodwill for Rocky and let’s face it he wasn’t gonna beat Paddy for Network in screenplay.
