A look at some potential previous Oscar nominees vying this year

Sony Pictures Classics

Recently (here), I took a look at what the above Oscar categories would look like with only first-time nominees. This never happens, of course, but imagine that? Well, today you can imagine something completely different. What if the Oscars lineup was made up entirely of people who had already been nominated?

Who would make a list like that? Well you would have people like Cate Blanchett, james cameron, Damien Chazelle, Tom Cruise, Todd Field, tom hank, Hugh Jackman, Carey Mulligan, Steven Spielbergand michelle williams, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg! In several cases, they not only have previous nominations, but already real Oscars on their coats.

Below, you can see some of the men and women with the best odds of becoming Oscar nominees this year for at least the second time. You’ll see a few categories that reasonably look like they might end up being. You’ll also see some that look very little like what the Oscars seem like it’s about to be. Consider it a fun experience, to say the least…
