Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

Beauty vs Beast: Devils in the Dakota

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- you wanna know what's unlikelier than a young Catholic girl being impregnated with the Antichrist thanks to a pact with the Devil made between her role-seeking actor-husband and her elderly mousse-loving neighbors?Unlikelier than all that is the fact that I have never used my favorite movie,akaRosemary's Baby,for this series before.Somebody call Dr.Shand to lure me off of this ledge with some of his sweet recorder music before I make myself the next Terry Gionoffrio over this.

Did I think the choice between Rosemary (never Oscar nominee Mia Farrow) and Minnie (Oscar winner Ruth Gordon) would just be too difficult a choice to subject our brains to?I must admit I find it personally impossible.I cannot!So I leave it to you.Just keep reminding yourself that this is no dream,this is really happening...

PREVIOUSLY Where are the Wild Things?Well last week theWild Thingswerecelebrating Neve Campbell's birthday.And y'all gave her bad girl Suzie a win to top it off - 70% of you voted for her over co-star Denise Richards.SaidEz:

"Aw,this film is so rooted in my '90's teenage girl experience.I saw it with my buddies for the first time at a sleepover birthday party.We all squealed at the Matt/Kevin shower scene!We were bigParty of Fivefans (I remember that it aired on Sunday nights afterThe Nannyin Australia) so we were totally there for Neve.So for nostalgia's sake,my vote goes to Neve :)"

This poll = Sophie's Choice 2: This Time It's Personal.

Gotta be Mia,first saw this 20 years ago and as a fan of Mia and all due respect to the other nominees in that year but Mia's hands down the best,my favourite scared but wise horror film performance,you just want to go into the screen and scream "they're all lying to you",A true woman who lies to herself performance.

It really is damn nee impossible,but I voted for Rosemary because Ruth Gordon already got her prize and it is absolutely CRIMINAL that Farrow has never been Oscar-nominated.It's also a very underrated/tricky performance.

TFE fave Cheyenne Jackson just become a Dad,even exhausted he looks cute.

Gotta go with Mia Farrow here - I mean come on,she's iconic.

October 10,2016 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Minnie,she's just a whole lot of fun.

October 10,2016 | Unregistered CommenterSteven

And iconic.

October 10,2016 | Unregistered CommenterPaul Outlaw

They're BOTH iconic.These are two of the best performances of all-time and they both should have won Oscars (Hepburn is wonderful,亚博主页but Barbra in Funny Girl looks so dated today compared to Farrow's performance).I have to abstain.

I think Ruth had the greater acting accomplishment.Mia was good at being afraid,but Ruth pulled off "loud old NYC lady in league with Satan,"succeeding in making her both hilarious,outspoken and very creepy.She reminds me of Barbara Bush that way.

October 10,2016 | Unregistered CommenterMarsha Mason

not even close: minnie,if just for her head scarves alone

[plus "i can't tell you how encouragin' a thing like this is"is one of the greatest oscar acceptances of all time]

October 11,2016 | Unregistered Commenterpar

I'm Minnie.He's Roman.Okay?OKAY?

Upon reflection,Ruth Gordon is my very favourite Best Supporting Actress win.So inspired.So deserved.For the moment where she retrieves the knife and rubs her floor alone.Goodness.

October 11,2016 | Unregistered CommenterRoger

...And please don't tell me what Laura-Louise said,'cause I'm not *interested*!

October 12,2016 | Unregistered CommenterRoger

This is another race that deserves to end in a tie.Both women give perfect,iconic performances,but Mia and Rosemary really got robbed,so I wanna support her.
