'The Favourite's potential Oscar-nominated actresses could make history - again




If When actresses Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz are announced as Oscar nominees on Tuesday morning for their work in 'The Favourite' (Olivia as lead; Emma and Rachel as supporting) they will mark the 19th time in the 91 year Oscars history that 3 or more women from the same movie have gotten nominations the same year.

I won't list the previous 18 times this happened, but the five most recent movies before this were:

-- 2011's "The Help" - Viola Davis (lead), Octavia Spencer (supporting and won), Jessica Chastain (supporting)
-- 2008's "Doubt" - Meryl Streep (lead), Viola Davis & Amy Adams (supporting)
-- 2002's "Chicago" - Renee Zellweger (lead); Catherine Zeta-Jones (supporting and won), Queen Latifah (supporting)
-- 1988's "Working Girl" - Melanie Griffith (lead), Sigourney Weaver & Joan Cusack (supporting)
-- 1985's "The Color Purple" - Whoopi Goldberg (lead), Oprah Winfrey & Margaret Avery (supporting)

Fun fact (maybe): only one movie had 4 actresses nominated, and that was 1950's "All About Eve," where all four women lost, sigh, and the only Oscars the movie won (including best picture) went almost entirely to men: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0042192/awards
