Tom Hanks 2 Oscars this year?

It is very possible that Tom Hanks could be both nominated for this and Saving Mr. Banks. What do you think?

Tom Hanks in yet another movie as a good guy in a bad situation. You can copy/paste his performances from one movie to the next.

I'm sorry but isn't the most basic template for a drama movie that there is a complex character that is put in some sort of conflict. Saying that is like saying that you can copy/paste nearly every drama. Think of the acclaimed movies coming out this year:
Gravity: Good guy: Sandra Bullock, Bad Situation: alone in space
12 Years a Slave: Good Guy:slave (Sorry, name just slipped my mind), bad situation: gets tricked and sent back down to the cruel world of slavery
All Is Lost: good guy: Robert Redford, bad situation: stuck alone at sea

The list goes on and on.

This would be his...sixth nomination now? BETTER WIN!

You realize he has won twice right? Just making sure cause you only mentioned him being nominated.

If he does win, which I kind of doubt, but if he does he will make history and join Daniel Day-Lewis.

And Walter Brennan. However, Daniel-Day Lewis is the only man to win best actor (not supporting actor) three times.

Well he's def getting nominated for this film. I still cant see him winning over Ejiofor or McConaughey though.

Hanks will win it... Overrated? Anyone who calls him overrated is undereducated or overstupid

Tom Hanks is one of the most deserving actors out there, a shame he's only won two Oscars. Captain Phillips will probably get him a nomination and Saving Mrs. Banks, less of a chance but still probably might.

2 oscars is pretty damn good. I think only three actors have ever won more than that (at least for their acting anyway).

It's very possible that he gets nominated for both, but does he win? I doubt it.

Anyone who calls Tom Hanks 'overrated' should cut his dick and suck it for the rest of his life.

I think it's possible, but I think it's more likely he will be nominated for one or the other but not both.

I could see him getting Supporting for Saving Mr. Banks then Best Actor for this. It looks great and Hanks will no doubt do great in this, but just from the trailers it doesnt seem like the meatiest of roles. My Best Actor lineup so far is looking like...

Chiwetel Ejifor - 12 Years a Slave
Matthew McConaughey - Dallas Buyers Club
Leonardo DiCaprio - The Wolf of Wall Street
Michael B. Jordan - Fruitvale Station

Possibles

Hugh Jackman - Prisoners
Joaquin Pheonix - Her
Steve Carrel - Foxcatcher
Oscar Isaac - Inside Llewyn Davis

Left Field random Pick

Chris Hemsworth - Rush

Sep 9 - 10:32 PM

Ejiofor

Good list. I think Jordan could definitely snag it. In my opinion, there's no reason that Hugh Jackman should be up there over Gyllenhaal for Prisoners. Sure at time Jackman blew me away, but Gyllenhaal dug deep for that character. and also left field random isn't "that" random. Hemsworth is definitely capable. I'll be seeing Rush today so I'll see what his chances are.

I totally agree that if anyone gets nominated for anything in Prisoners, it should be Gyllenhaal, not Jackman.
