I'm not sure I understand this, you mean they have 5 nominations one in each decade? or a couple 5 decades apart. I think only Nicholson encompasses 60's to 2K.
a nomination in 5 different decades...(perhaps could have had more than one nom in a particular decade)...but 4 Actors have received them....and Jack Nicholson is one of them.
make that 3 actors....sorry was thinking of Paul Newman...he got noms in '59, '62, '64, '68, ...3 more in the '80's and one in '94...but none in the 70's...my mistake......the other actor is from the 60's-20's...and the 3rd Actor's is from the late '30's - '70s.
I dobn't know, the one's I was thinking of, Dustin Hoffman, Laurence Olivier, Bette Davis all miss those decades. Only Nicholson covers all of them Hoffman hasn't had a nom since Rain Man, Olivier didn't get one in the 30s, Davis none in 70s, so I'm lost.
OLIVIER GOT 1939...WUTHERING HEIGHTS
1940...REBECCA, 1946 HENRY V
1976...MARATHON MAN (SUPPORTING) I THINK
1978....BOYS FROM BRAZIL
IN ANOTHER SOURCE THEY STATED THE 3RD ACTOR WAS MICHAEL CAINE
BUT JUST LOOKED IT UP...'67, '73, '84...NONE '90'SW?...BUT 2000....2003...SO MY EARLIER SOURCE WAS WRONG I GUESS.
SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION...ImBD HAD STATED THE 4 ACTORS WERE
PAUL NEWMAN, LAURANCE OLIVIER, JACK NICHOLSON, AND MICHAEL CAINE.
I may have misunderstood the question, but actuall NO ONE, not even Nicholson has nominations in 5 different decades. As a matter of fact, only he and Olivier in that list are close. Olivier did not have a nom in the 30's for instance. He and Jack cover 4 decades not 5.
WIKIPEDIA LISTS 1939 FOR NOMINATION FOR WUTHERING HEIGHTS? ...MY ORIGINAL QUESTION CAME FROM THE TRIVIA SECTION ON ImBD...WHICH LISTS NICHOLSON, OLIVIER, NEWMAN, AND MICHAEL CANINE....AS THE 4 ACTORS TO RECIEVE NOMINATIONS SPANNING 5 DECADES...SO IT'S TRUE...NOT EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE INTERNET IS TRUE...AND HERE I THOUGHT OTHERWISE...
WELL AFTER THIS FIASCO...IT'S STILL YOUR TURN
Actually, Laurence Olivier does meet the criterion. I misspoke on Heights it was 39. But Caine, and Newman both skip decades, Caine had none in 90's, Newman none in 70's. Let's move on...Who was the first actor (Male) to win both a lead and supporting oscar, supporting was first.
gonna guess ...Jack Lemmon...won well deserved supporting nod for Mr. Roberts in the '50's...and I know he won later on for Best Actor...for Save The Tiger in the '70's?
That is correct, your turn
2 MOVIES ARE TIED FOR THE SHORTEST TITLE OF A MOVIE TO WIN AN OSCAR FOR BEST PICTURE....CAN YOU NAME THEM?
