Julianne Moore Could Be 11th Actor With Five or More Acting Noms Before First Oscar Win

18 February 2015 8:10 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

At Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, Julianne Moore could join the ranks of 10 actors and actresses who have had five or more acting nominations before their first win.

Moore earned her fifth nomination for her portrayal of a professor suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s in Still Alice, based on Lisa Genova‘s 2007 novel of the same name. She was first nominated in 1998 for Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights.

In Academy history, five actors and actresses have won their first Oscar on their fifth nomination.

Gregory Peck, who was first nominated in 1946 for The Keys of the Kingdom, didn’t win until 1962 for To Kill a Mockingbird. Five years later, Peck was awarded The Academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.

Susan Hayward won her first and only Oscar in 1959 for her leading role in I Want to Live!. She was first nominated in 1948 for Smash-Up: The Story of a Woman. »

Louis Jourdan, Star of ‘Octopussy,’ ‘Gigi,’ Dies at 93

15 February 2015 12:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Louis Jourdan, who crafted a Hollywood acting career in the footsteps of fellow dapper Frenchmen Maurice Chevalier and Charles Boyer and is best remembered for the musical “Gigi” and as the villain in James Bond pic “Octopussy,” has died at 93. According to his friend and biographer Olivier Minne, he died Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills.

Jourdan offered a certain effortless charm that worked equally well in light heroic roles and more sinister ones.

“He was the last French figure of the Hollywood golden age. And he worked with so many of the greatest actors and directors,” said Minne, who is working on a documentary and a book about Jourdan.

In Vincente Minnelli’s 1958 musical confection “Gigi,” Jourdan starred with Leslie Caron and Chevalier in an effort from the “My Fair Lady” team of Lerner & Loewe, turning the Collette tale into a Frenchified version of “Pygmalion.” The New York Times said, »

It’s Been 17 Years Since American Actors Have Swept the Oscar’s Acting Categories

12 February 2015 10:17 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

On any given year, the four acting winners are usually a mix of American and non-American actors, but this year could see all four acting awards go to American actors for the first time in 17 years.

If Michael Keaton beats Eddie Redmayne for lead actor and the current projected frontrunners — supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore — also win, it will be the first time since 1998 that all of the acting awards were given to American actors. (It will also be the second time in 77 years that all of the winners have been 46 or older.)

In contrast, the last time all four awards went to non-American actors was in 2008, when Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem and Tilda Swinton all won.

Since 1980, there have been eight instances where American actors were awarded all four acting Oscars. »
