Oscar is so overrated. Don't get me wrong, I do think it's a great award show but just because someone won an Oscar or more, doesn't necessarily make that person better than the ones who haven't won yet. That's why I find it so pointless to count how many Oscars one had won as if it's something to be bragged about. There are many times when a great performance or great achievements in movie-making were overlooked due to some silly politics rather than the actual artistic merit. And the ones who did win, can we honestly say that ALL of them really deserve to win? I'm sure there are some great winners who truly deserve to win but Oscars has also a long list of mistakes when it comes to selecting their nominees and/or winners.

That being said, I appreciate this list and I applaud you for what you're doing. But I honestly don't look at the top of this list and think "wow that's awesome" as opposed to those at the bottom or even the ones who don't even make this list. Quality is much more important than quantity. I have more admiration towards actors/movie makers who might have never won an Oscar but with great credibility to their names as opposed to those who collect trophies after trophies each year but with little substance to their art or body of work.

Besides, if you want to talk about records, where the heck is Meryl Streep? She has been nominated for Best Actress numerous times more than any other actresses today (and frankly, she deserves it. She is probably one of very few modern living actors whom I still have respect for).

^Well obviously awards like these are subjective so of course they technically don't mean anything. It matters what the people like, not some committee...just don't pay any attention to them then XD

Your picture of Jo Van Fleet is really a picture of Eva Marie Saint.



There's a picture of Jo Van Fleet with her Oscar for East of Eden.
