Recommended Posts

Some things to consider before watching the 92nd annual Academy Awards ceremony, which will air Sunday, February 9, 2020 on ABC:

Yes, that was Academy Award winner Colin Firth as the general who issues marching orders to the heroes of the World War I drama "1917."  The British actor's presence in an Oscar-nominated film is usually good news  for the movie.
Firth has appeared in three other productions nominated for Best Picture and all of them won: "The English Patient" (1996), "Shakespeare in Love" (1998) and "The King's Speech" (2010, the historical drama for which he received the Academy Award for Best Actor).
If "1917" collects the top Oscar next month, Firth will become the first major star to appear in four Best Pictures. At the moment, he is tied with several familiar actors who also have appeared in three. Among them:
  • Clark Gable: "It Happened One Night" (1934), "Mutiny On the Bounty" (1935), "Gone With the Wind" (1939).
  • Talia Shire: "The Godfather" (1972), "The Godfather Part II" (1974), "Rocky" (1976).
  • Diane Keaton: "The Godfather" (1972), "The Godfather Part II" (1974), "Annie Hall" (1977).
  • Sir John Gielgud: "Around the World in Eighty Days:" (1956), "Chariots of Fire" (1981), "Gandhi" (1982).
  • Shirley MacLaine: "Around the World in Eighty Days" (1956), "The Apartment" (1960). "Terms of Endearment" (1983).
  • Meryl Streep: "The Deer Hunter" (1978), "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979), "Out of Africa" (1985)
  • Dustin Hoffman: "Midnight Cowboy" (1969), "Kramer vs. Kramer" (1979), "Rain Man" (1988).
  • Morgan Freeman: "Driving Miss Daisy" (1989), "Unforgiven" (1992), "Million Dollar Baby" (2004)
  • Jack Nicholson: "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" (1975), "Terms of Endearment" (1983), "The Departed" (2006)
  • Ralph Fiennes: "Schindler's List" (1993), "The English Patient" (1996), "The Hurt Locker" (2009).
