Imelda Staunton also won the Volpi as well. That seems to more comparable to Kirby
Eh, Staunton was the critical favorite, swept the trifecta, won BAFTA, and Vera Drake got into Directing and Screenplay, practically on the verge for a Picture nomination. She wasn’t a lone nod here. IIRC, Vera Drake won the Golden Lion as well.October 30, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203811944
You really can’t compare Kirby to Mirren, Stone and Colman when she’s likely to be the only showing of her movie while all the others slayed the nominations
You also can’t really try it with Blanchett neither. Yes, she was a lone nod, but she was also in a transformative role doing that gender-bender schtick and won key things like Globe and NSFC (in the supporting category). She was also getting double-nods that year.October 30, 2020 at 9:56 am #1203811345

Viola, Andra, Frances, Meryl, Adams seem likely to me. Funny, the push against Meryl here were the same arguments made when she was contending for Florence Foster Jenkins and GD foolishly had her at 11th in odds because they thought people like Annette Bening and Kate Beckinsale were more likely. “Too light, too fluff, forgotten in August, critics arent nominating her” etc., and lo and behold lol.
This could be Adams’ August Osage County type nod (and many doubted Streep there for Thompson) where its too showy to not get #1 votes.October 29, 2020 at 6:38 pm #1203810316
That’s the only way to explain how Denzel beat Affleck who won literally everything else (other than his performance being louder and more “actor-ey” but I don’t think it’s that relevant) This said the overdue factor didn’t help Pacino or Pesci beating Pitt like some were predicting
Also Meryl winning for Doubt over Winslet.October 29, 2020 at 6:29 pm #1203810295
French Exit has a 54 MC, Pfeiffer will be content with a filler Globe nod.October 29, 2020 at 5:52 pm #1203810229
Paul Newman, Nobody’s Fool
Plsssssssss. Paul Newman had 7 nominations at that time, won NYFCC and NSFC and had a late break release date where voters would see him at the peak of voting. Nobody’s Fool also got a Screenplay nod.
Who else? You need more than just goodwill and being a legend.
