HDTGM and the Oscars

Ryan Sz's Photo Ryan Sz 01 Nov 2017

During the discussion of Virtuosity it was brought up that both the main stars of the film were A-list Oscar winners and the question was brought up if this film had the most Oscar recipients. So I decided to start compiling a list of nominees and winners in HDTGM films. Names that I looked at were the actors, director, producers, and writers, but those names may not have won in those categories i.e. Justin Timberlake being nominated for Best Song but he acted in The Love Guru. If a person has both won an Oscar but has been nominated other times, I am only listing the win. I'm about 1/6th the way through the episode list, but will be continually working on it.

Impressive research, Ryan.

I'm still crossing my fingers for Lou Gossett Jr., who immediately followed up his Oscar winning performance in "Officer and a Gentleman" with an unending stream of appearances in D-level schlock (Enemy Mine excepted).

Top Gun has been my bread and butter since I was a wee lad (my Dad being a 5'6" dark-haired handsome Navy pilot didn't hurt. FREUDIAN!) I hereby challenge you to a game of shirtless volleyball!

As of right now The Tourist and Winter's Tale have the most Oscar winners at five, followed by Toys with four. For the most part there weren't many surprises as to who won Oscars outside of the dad from Kazaam winning three times or the producer of Airborne having an Oscar for Best Picture. Over the course of my research I did find quite a few all-stars that haven't been listed yet, but I think I'll give it some time before delving back into the HDTGM research hole.

Sorry to do a C&O on your research, but I believe you are talking about two different James Achesons. The Oscar winner is an English costume designer, with a career spanning back to 1970s Doctor Who, all the way up to prestige period dramas and superhero flicks.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0009807/

The actor in Kazaam is this fellow, who appeared in a smattering of supporting roles in TV and film in the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s:

I really hope so because it's a wonderful performance. But the Oscars are a bit stuffier. I wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't get nominated for anything. Especially with as strong as this year has been for movies.

I can see Franco get at least a nomination because his performance is getting mounds of praise, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Gary Oldman get the win. Because if there is anything the Oscars love giving awards to more than films about the arts, it's biopics.

I can see Franco being the most likely but I think that's largely because of how weak lead actors have been this year. Or the great lead actor performances are in not typical of the Oscars type movies.

I definitely think James is going to get a nom. In my opinion all of the strongest performances have been by women so I actually think it's going to be easier to nominated the men this year.

Although if Daniel Kaluuya doesn't get nominated for Get Out (wtf is this comedy-musical BS from the GGs???) then I'm going to riot.
