George Clooney's Problem (But Don't Feel Sorry for Him!)
THE SLINGSHOT EFFECT: A combination of two great performances in the same year can boost one into the winner’s circle.
1993: Holly Hunter -- As a secretary who conspires with Tom Cruise in The Firm, Hunter earned a supporting nom. But by going period in The Piano, she landed the best actress trophy.
2004: Jamie Foxx -- Playing opposite Cruise in the thriller Collateral brought Foxx a supporting mention. But it was his star turn as Ray Charles in Ray that earned him the gold.
2008: Kate Winslet -- Winslet received Golden Globes for Revolutionary Road (lead) and The Reader (supporting). The Academy gave her one nom, for lead in Reader, and she won.
