Happy Oscar Eve everyone ! As I can imagine you’re all talking about who will win, who should win and who doesn’t even deserve red carpet space. Well being the useless knowledge junkie that I am, I thought it would be interesting to browse some past nominee lists and was amazed by some of the people that DON’T have a little Golden guy. So here’s a few ”what the hell ??” moments.
Kate Winslet- 5 nominations
–Sense And Sensibility (1995), Titanic (1997), Iris (2001), Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind (2004), Little Children (2006) ***6th Nomination for The Reader (2008)***
Peter Sellers- 2 nominations.
–Dr. Strangelove (1964), Being There (1979)
Julianne Moore- 4 nominations.
–Boogie Nights (1997), The End Of The Affair (1999) Far From Heaven and The Hours (2002)
Leonardo DiCaprio -3 nominations.
–What’s Eating Gilbert Grape ? (1993), The Aviator (2004), Blood Diamond (2006)
Debra Winger- 3 nominations.
–An Officer And A Gentleman (1982), Terms Of Endearment (1983), Shadowlands (1993)
Julie Walters- 2 nominations.
–Educating Rita (1983), Billy Elliot (2000)
Bill Murray- 1 nomination.
Lost In Translation (2003)
Bette Midler- 2 nominations.
–The Rose (1979), For The Boys (1991)
And, in my opinion, the biggest injustice:
Brenda Blethyn- 2 nominations.
–Secrets And Lies (1996), Little Voice (1998)
