Who is Cate Blanchett rooting for in the best-actor category? It just might be Christian Bale, with whom she’s made two films. See how many times this year’s Oscar nominees have worked together.
Some actors may feel particularly torn at this year’s Academy Awards, as they have strong connections with many nominees.
- Alfonso Cuarón and Payne directed segments of “Paris je t’aime” and co-produced “The Assassination of Richard Nixon.”
- Michael Fassbender has worked in all three of McQueen’s feature films.
- Only Abdi has never worked with any other nominees in the acting or directing categories.
- Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence have worked together twice and were Oscar nominees both times. Their third film together, “Serena,” is scheduled to be released this year.
- Among these nominees, Lupita Nyong’o has worked only with her colleagues on “12 Years a Slave.”
