Which One-Time Oscar-Nominated Actress Is Overdue For Second Bid?

one time oscar nominated actresses

There are performers who’re not only one-time Oscar nominees but have us wondering “How do they just have one?.” An actor having at least one does mean they’ll always carry the “Academy Award Nominee” moniker. However, there are those who’ve put in great work that warrants more than just a single bid.

For this poll, we’ll be acknowledging actresses who’ve earned a sole nomination and hopefully, achieve a follow-up bid. Just last year, Alfre Woodard, was in the running for “Clemency,” nearly earning her first nomination since “Cross Creek” back in 1983. Meanwhile, Rosie Perez, who was nominated for “Fearless” in 1993, has been making a big-screen resurgence.

I remember quite a few people predicting Carey Mulligan to get in this year for Promising Young Woman, and that was even before films started getting pushed back. Besides, she’s overdue for Inside Llewyn Davis.


I think Mulligan and Colette are both next in line to get their second nominations. Colette seems to be moving into a Laura Dern-esque new stage of her career in which she is gaining a stronger sense of mass popularity, with works like Hereditary, Knives Out, and Netflix’s Unbelievable. If she wins an Emmy for Unbelievable then I think that could kind of be like Laura Dern’s win for Big Little Lies, which helped to add to her “overdue” narrative.
