People you may not know have an Oscar:


These you probably know:

Michael Douglas's first was as a producer on One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest

Brad Pitt as a producer, George Clooney (2) one as a producer.

Here's an obscure one, Lisa Blount...the redhead in "Prince of Darkness" who goes through the mirror at the end. She had one for a short film she produced.

That scene of her and the mirror still chills me to the bone. When she appears in the dream sequence, brrrr

That short film also had her husband, one of my favorite Hollywood "that guys," Ray McKinnon.

Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy (for "Bridesmaids") had a bit part in "The Life of David Gale," which featured Oscar winners Kevin Spacey and Kate Winslet. She was the goth girl who turned Oscar nominee Laura Linney's house into a tourist attraction.

And oddly, although not listed as an Oscar winner, Walton Goggins received the Oscar with McKinnon and Blount and even gave a speech: The Accountant Wins Live Action Short: 2002 Oscars. So maybe he has one of the two they received.

Dean Pelton, from COMMUNITY — “Would That This Desk Were A Time Desk!” — was played by Jim Rash, who’s got one. (Uh, an Oscar, not a time desk.)

It always surprised me that the X-Men movies had two Oscar laureates, neither of whom was Ian McKellan nor Patrick Stewart. (They were Anna Paquin and Halle Berry.)

People probably know Charlie Chaplin has honorary Oscars, but he also won a competitive Oscar for Best Original Score for Limelight in 1972 -- twenty years after the film was originally released.

Movies these days often show several people as "producer." 12 Years a Slave had seven producers including Brad Pitt. Do all of them get credit for an Oscar if the film wins Best Picture?

Wikipedia says:
Quote:
As of 2014, the "Special Rules for the Best Picture of the Year Award" limit recipients to those who meet two main requirements:[11]

Those with screen credit of "producer" or "produced by"
those three or fewer producers who have performed the major portion of the producing functions

The rules allow "bona fide team[s] of not more than two people to be considered to be a single 'producer' if the two individuals have had an established producing partnership for at least the previous five years and as a producing team have produced a minimum of five theatrically released feature motion pictures during that time.[11]

Eminem, of course, has an Oscar. Best Original Song is a fountain of odd Oscar winners: Lionel Richie, Annie Lennox, Juicy J, Isaac Hayes, Bob Dylan.

Alas, only a nomination, and not a win, but Seth MacFarlane and Walter Murphy (best known for his 1970s disco song "A Fifth of Beethoven") were nominated for the song "Everybody Needs a Best Friend," from Ted.

It's true. I have to give credit to Phil Collins, he did a great job on that movie. Better than the movie, actually.

Actually, I think the Grammy is the one that makes it tough, particularly for a non-musical actor. Helen Hayes and John Gielgud received their Grammy awards for spoken word recordings. And then you have non-acting types like the choreographer Bob Fosse or the set designer Tony Walton, who have won the Tony, Emmy and Oscar but have no clear path to a Grammy.

Another "alas," but Adam Duritz and Counting Crows were nominated for "Best Original Song" for Shrek 2 tune "Accidentally In Love," quite possibly the most upbeat and against-type song they've ever written, since Duritz is the most depressing son of a bitch on the face of the Earth. Johnny Cash would have told the man to lighten up.

My first reaction was that Shaw must have been pissed, because the award was clearly for Pygmalion, for which they notably did NOT use the version he had written for the screen, and because THEY CHANGED THE ENDING!!!

It turns out that he was pissed, but for other reasons (although it was, indeed, for Pygmalion)

Quote:
Best Writing, Screenplay
Pygmalion (1938)
Shared with:
Ian Dalrymple
Cecil Lewis
W.P. Lipscomb
George Bernard Shaw was not present at the ceremony. When presenter Lloyd C. Douglas announced that Pygmalion has won the Oscar he joked "Mr. Shaw's story now is as original as it was three thousand years ago". Shaw's reaction to the award was not enthusiastic as he is quoted as saying "It's an insult for them to offer me any honour, as if they had never heard of me before - and it's very likely they never have. They might as well send some honour to George for being King of England". Although popular legend says Shaw never received the Oscar, when Mary Pickford visited him she reported that he was on his mantle. When Shaw died in 1950 his home at Ayot St Lawrence became a museum. By this time his Oscar statuette was so tarnished, the curator believed it had no value and used it as a door stop. It has since been repaired and is now on displayed at the museum.
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0789737/awards


Quote:
Despite his contempt for Hollywood and its aesthetic values, Shaw was enthusiastic about cinema, and in the middle of the decade wrote screenplays for prospective film versions of Pygmalion and Saint Joan.[188][189] The latter was never made, but Shaw entrusted the rights to the former to the unknown Gabriel Pascal, who produced it at Pinewood Studios in 1938. Shaw was determined that Hollywood should have nothing to do with the film, but was powerless to prevent it from winning one Academy Award ("Oscar"); he described his award for "best-written screenplay" as an insult, coming from such a source.[190][n 23]

Clint Eastwood has won two Oscars - both for directing and neither for acting.
The films were "Unforgiven" (1992) and "Million Dollar Baby" (2004)

He has four Oscars. But the other two are for producing the movies he won the directing awards for.

I was at a concert by Buffy Sainte Marie, a Saskatchewan First Nations singer-songwriter. As she was tuning her guitar she said:

"Writing music is funny. It's sort of like raising a little bird and letting it go into the world. You never know where it will end up."

"This one came home one day with an Oscar."

Then she sang "Up Where We Belong" from An Officer and a Gentleman.

I was unaware that Jack Nitzsche ....who wrote with The Stones and did the soundtrack for The Razors Edge and Village of the Giants also won an AA for that same song.

If we're mentioning nominations as well, try this one:

What two regular cast members of All in the Family have been nominated for Academy Awards?

SPOILER:
Rob Reiner, nominated as a producer for A Few Good Men, and Danielle Brisebois (who played Edith's niece Stephanie in AitF's last season), nominated for Best Original Song from Begin Again.

I enjoyed the story he tells about being on the plane back to England and passing the Oscar around to all the passengers.

Another Oscar winner for best short is Christine Lahti. She was nominated for Swing Shift but her win came from her short.

The deadpan comedian, Steven Wright, was awarded an Oscar in 1989 for Best Short Live-Action Film for The Appointments of Dennis Jennings, which he co-wrote (with Michael Armstrong) and starred in. (Most of that is a quote from wiki.)

Add Trey Parker and Matt Stone to the list of odd nominees for one of their songs from the South Park Movie. I think it was "What would Brian Boitano'd Do?" Also, because I'm too lazy to look it up and confirm, I think they're only an Oscar away from an EGOT.

Without looking it up, I think it was "Blame Canada"; I remember Robin Williams singing it on the Oscar telecast. He had to turn away rather than say "fuck" on the air.

Tell this to Lin-Manuel Miranda. He's got three Tony awards, three Grammies, and an Emmy. He's also got a Pulitzer, a MacArthur grant, and two Olivier awards. But still no Oscar.

They only lost because the Academy refused to nominate "Uncle Fucka," which was the standout song of that movie.

Blame Robert Lopez, who blocked him and has a double EGOT (at least two of each award).

Funnily enough he contributes nothing (I think thats what he said) to Mary Poppins Returns music writing, so thats a non-starter.

He'll just have to wait for the inevitable boatload of Oscars Hamilton will get. I'm sure he'll at least get it as a producer on Best Picture.

I’m not so sure. From what I understand the Hamilton movie is just the stage show that was once filmed. I have my doubts that it would be nominated for anything. Any song would have to be written for the movie and not from the stage show. It has to be an original song.

Maybe more likely is the movie coming out next year based on his earlier musical In the Heights
