Wow, so only 5 people!
Several other nominated for both: Judy Garland, Liza Minnelli, Doris Day, Diana Ross, Mary J. Blige, Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper.February 24, 2021 at 6:29 am #1204058423
1996: Diane Keaton & Meryl Streep for “Marvin’s Room”
Streep was nominated at the Golden Globes and Keaton at SAGs – both in leading category. At the Oscars only the former was nominated for more awards-friendly role.
1998: Rachel Griffiths & Emily Watson for “Hilary & Jackie”
I haven’t seen it yet but I read a few times that Griffiths was a category fraud. And she got top billing too!
2002: Nicole Kidman & Meryl Streep for “The Hours”
Streep was almost certainly sixth in that race and had “Adaptation.” nod in supporting as a consolation prize. Moore should’ve been lead too but she had “Far from Heaven” that year so she frauded into supporting.
2006: Anne Hathaway & Meryl Streep for “Devil Wears Prada”
Not that Hathaway was in the running but construction of the film allowed them both to compete in this race.
2006: Cate Blanchett & Judi Dench for “Notes for a Scandal”
It’s seen through Dench’s character POV but it’s a blurry line for Blanchett, TBH. I get why she’s in supporting but I also get why people are talking about category fraud here.
2009: Amy Adams & Meryl Streep for “Julie & Julia”
The same as with Hathaway/Streep.
2010: Annette Bening & Julianne Moore for “The Kids Are All Right”
Both were legitimately lead character so kudos to Moore for sticking to that this time even if that meant she was snubbed.
2011: Viola Davis & Emma Stone for “The Help”
The same as with Hathaway/Streep and Adams/Streep.
2013: Julia Roberts & Meryl Streep for “August. Osage County”
If Julia’s role had been written for a man, he would compete in Best Actor.
2015: Cate Blanchett & Rooney Mara for “Carol”
Disgusting category fraud. I think if they had balls to submit both actresses in lead, Mara would’ve been nominated over Jennifer Lawrence.
2018: Olivia Colman & Emma Stone for “The Favorite”
I can live with Weisz in supporting but movie has a VERY CLEAR arc for Emma Stone’s character and I’d argue she’s more of a lead than Olivia Colman’s queen. I think Volvi Cup for Colman and Stone’s recent Oscar win lead to that separation.
I think that’s it unless you count film that got no Best Actress nomination in the end (for example “Death Becomes Her” or “Carnage” – very clear that both Hawn/Streep and Foster/Winslet were equal there).February 21, 2021 at 1:47 pm #1204053208

“Palm Springs” for the nod! Fingers crossed for creativity in Best Original Screenplay category like it was done so well many times before. 🙂February 18, 2021 at 2:19 pm #1204048774
Mulligan gave a stunning performance, easily the best of her career. Cassandra was a fascinating character – living with her parents, failure at work, studies and romance and yet… unbothered about all that with only one thing on her mind when entire world already moved on.
The movie was breathtaking. So many different things going on at once, contrast of exterior facade and interior intentions. It was a splendid mash-up of genres. Personally I’ve had associations towards some movies like:
“Kill Bill” – methodical revisiting of wrongdoers from the past
“Trainwreck” – goofy and smart boyfriend type, basically Bill Hader
“Klute” – listening to the tape – moment to seal Best Actress win
and few others I forgot now.
I was skeptical that Cassie’s antics would remain a secret that long and she wouldn’t run towards anyone she knew before (when it happened, it was one of the strongest scenes and punch in the gut). Kudos for Alison Brie for starring in this movie, channeling her inner Trudy Campbell – when she said “You’ll get there” regarding children, I was reminded how Trudy told Peggy “26 is still very young” on “Mad Men”. 🙂 Why was Madison not at the wedding, though, if “two of her favorite people in the world” were getting married? It would’ve been a reunion between Ruth and Bash from “GLOW”. 🙂
I loved set design(s), soundtrack choices (“Toxic” was especially well done as Carey was looking many times like Britney Spears, I thought), costumes, editing (with a few exceptions). Emerald Fennell, Camilla Parker Bowles from “The Crown” (!), did a stellar job – Best Director nod (at least) and Best Original Screenplay win (totally!) should be hers.
Film works BECAUSE of its ending and especially the very final resolution. Very eerie, precise and thoughtful. I thought it was a clever idea and the best conclusion possible given the intensity of Cassie’s emotions and how successful she was at getting under skin of other people. For me the best film of the season (from what I saw).February 18, 2021 at 7:32 am #1204048138
I guess it looks more like “Ratched” than I’ve expected but who knows – Stone is a great actress and it might have some interesting directions. Let’s give it a chance.February 18, 2021 at 7:20 am #1204048112
I thought it was a very fine film. I wouldn’t guess that between movie about 1940s Hollywood, courtroom drama and western the final one would be my favorite but here we are. I get why some people consider it boring but for me it was moving at a fine pace and sequence with 3 guys chasing the pair was among the best this year. Paul Greengrass did subtle, elegant job, IMO.
Another solid performance from Tom Hanks who wouldn’t have been a bad nominee. Why he’s not among nominees at several televised awards now and his co-star is? I don’t know.
Helena Zengel was very good and her money scene comes early – when she tries to run away and calls for help through the river. Given that she got very little dialogue to interpret, she did most by body language. Great performance for a child actor and decent one overall. We didn’t have a child nominee since Q. Wallis and in supporting since Hailee Steinfeld (paralells between this movie and “True Grit” are pretty obvious plot-wise) so it would be fun.
MVP was my countryman, Dariusz Wolski, and his stellar cinematography. Sandstorm and chase in the rain were especially amazing. Fingers crossed for that nomination (at least)! 🙂February 12, 2021 at 11:42 am #1204039239

I think Chicago 7 will win Original Screenplay no matter what. Can’t see a runner-up going home empty handed. Hope I’m wrong.
It was ok film but nothing more. There were worse winners, though.
I have to say that I dislike films based on real life stories in Best Original Screenplay category. I know the basic rules of how screenplay categories work but… real life stories “The King’s Speech”, “Green Book”, “Spotlight” or “Straight Outta Compton” are apparently truly original stories while “Moonlight” or “Whiplash” are adapted? Yeah, right.February 12, 2021 at 7:00 am #1204038796
Will “No Time to Die” be eligible next year if it was released in this season and film had been postponed?February 11, 2021 at 12:11 pm #1204037743
