A few filmmakers, performers and artists may hear their names called several times when the Academy announces its nominations March 15. These contenders hail from all categories, including acting, writing and technical pursuits.
For context, no one is in a position to break the record Walt Disney set in 1954, when the mogul nabbed six noms: “The Alaskan Eskimo” (best documentary short), “Ben and Me”, “Bear Country” “The Living Desert” (best documentary feature), “Rugged Bear” and “Toot Whistle Plunk and Boom”. Francis Ford Coppola is next in line with five nominations in 1974 spread between his films “The Conversation” and “The Godfather Part II.”
Here are the three most likely multi-nominees in contention this year.
Terence Blanchard • “Da 5 Bloods” (original score) • “One Night in Miami” (original score)
The veteran composer received his first nomination for 2018’s “BlacKkKlansman.” Teamed
