Double Golden Globes duel: Amy Adams or Regina King could be 5th performer to win twice in one night


Amy Adams and Regina King will have a double showdown at the Golden Globe Awards. The stars are nominated in two categories, Best Film Supporting Actress and Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actor. If either goes 2-for-2, she’d be the fifth performer to win two Globes in one night.

Adams’ and King’s bids for “Vice” and “If Beale Street Could Talk” on the film side were widely expected; they were 1-2 in our predictions and are in the same positions in our combined Oscar odds. But their duel on the TV side was a little less secure. Adams was in the No. 1 spot all season for her HBO limited series “Sharp Objects,” while King was in the precarious fifth spot for Netflix’s “Seven Seconds.”

However, King is coming off her third Emmy win in four years, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association had only nominated her once during that span, for “American Crime” in 2016. “Seven Seconds” did not get any other nomination, unlike “Sharp Objects,” so this is the power of King and her great year.

Only four performers have double-fisted at the Globes — all women. Sigourney Weaver on in supporting and drama lead for “Working Girl” (1988) and “Gorillas in the Mist,” the latter of which was in a three-way tie with Jodie Foster (“The Accused”) and Shirley MacLaine (“Madame Sousatzka”). Joan Plowright took home film and TV supporting Globes for “Enchanted April (1991) and “Stalin,” respectively. Helen Mirren won for her royal lead roles in “The Queen” (2006) and the miniseries “Elizabeth I.” And the most recent double recipient was Kate Winslet, who grabbed her first two career Globes in supporting for “The Reader” (2008) and in drama lead for “Revolutionary Road.”

We could’ve had three double nominees in these same two categories. Emma Stone was in second place in our odds for Netflix’s “Maniac,” but the show was snubbed completely. She did make the cut in Best Film Supporting Actress for “The Favourite.”
