Tom Hanks is extremely likely to join this group this year - having just slipped in under the wire last year. I'm sure we'll have that come up in a thread about "Interesting Oscar Facts" as we get closer to it.
For now, these are the 4 who have pulled off this feat: Who is the best or your favorite of these 4 Oscar faves.
Easy Rider Five Easy Pieces Carnal Knowledge The Last Detail Chinatown The Passenger One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest The Shining Reds Terms of Endearment Prizzi's Honor Ironweed Batman A Few Good Men As Good As It Gets About Schmidt The Departed
Both McDormand and Julia have a chance at continuing this streak. If McDormand doesn't get a nod in the first few years of the 2020s, I think she's done. Julia has a great chance if she doesn't go into hiding after age 55 like many Hollywood stars tend to do (Hackman, Pesci, Hepburn), but she's so involved in the community and the land of Hollywood that I can't see her doing that.
DDL is the one most likely done if I had to guess. I think Hanks, Streep, and Washington will keep going.
From the ones mentioned as potentially joining the list, DDL would challenge Meryl for the top spot. Denzel, Hanks, and McDormand would rank somewhere below the "big three" who are probably all in the top ten actors of all time.

just based on their nominated work, it's gotta be Streep > Caine > Nicholson (he's had some terrible nomianted perfs--I will never wrap my head around that fuckin accent in Prizzi's Honor). Stepping back and thinking about it more generally, I guess it'd be a toss-up between Jack and Meryl, and I like Caine a lot too, but I'm sticking with Meryl today.
Haven't seen enough Olivier to say. Only seen two nominated perfs that I know of--didn't care for Richard III but liked him a lot in The Entertainer. He should've been nominated for Spartacus too.
