Oscar winners in sw's


(Bill san Antonio) #1

Oscars aren’t really that important thing to me, I don’t even watch the award galas ever.
But I started to think today about actors in sw’s and how many of them were oscar winners or would be one in future.

Clint Eastwood is one of course but only after years
others
Rod Steiger
Henry fonda
Anthony Quinn
Charlton Heston (if you include Jack London films as sw’s)

Any others? Or how about other people working on sw’? Is Morricone the only one with Oscar?

Oscar winners in SW"s is almost like an oxymoron LOL. But yeah its surprising just how many there actually are.

James Coburn
Yul Brynner
Ernest Borgnine
Jason Robards

I think the interesting question is:

How many of them appeared in a SW after they got their Academy Award?

(Dillinger) #16

Orson Welles got an Oscar?

I know another one:

Van Heflin


(Starblack) #17

Vincenzo Cerami was a nominee for Life is Beautiful.


(Frank Talby) #18

I also wanted to reply to Bill saying I agree with not caring about the Oscars or award shows in general. I don’t need some committee to tell which film or director they feel is the best.


(John Welles) #19

Yes he did for Best Screenplay in 1941 for “Citizen Kane” (I should know, it’s my favourite film).

Of course you and Bill are right. Especially if you have a look what kind of performances sometimes get one…
