@bschwartz47 The stat was describing years in which three different films all had both an Actress and Supporting Actress nomination. In 1993, only The Piano did it.
@sailoke05996842 @directorsguild @dunkirkmovie @GetOutMovie @LadyBirdMovie @shapeofwater I can't get in the heads of Oscar voters, but in general, while Thor was well-reviewed (92% on Rotten Tomatoes), it wasn't quite high enough in any one domain to crack the top five in a particular category.
@Filmatelist @dunkirkmovie @TheAcademy That's a fair point. I'll consider including Special Achievement wins in the future, depending on the context of the tweet. Thanks for the feedback.
@Filmatelist @beourguest That is correct. If I had defined the tweet to include special achievement Oscars, King Kong would have been included. And I would have run out of characters!
