The "John C. Reilly Award" is Hollywood's latest unofficial award and one of the most prestigious a character actor can achieve. It is bestowed on any actor who makes credited appearances in at least three Oscars Best Picture nominees in a single year. Only thirteen actors have achieved this rare feat, eleven were between 1935 and 1943 during Hollywood's Golden Age. Those  awards happened when Best Picture nominees averaged 10-12 movies per year and contract players made several pictures every year. The “John C. Reilly Award” is the awards namesake by virtue of being the only actor to remarkably accomplish a triple in a year when only five movies were Best Picture Oscar nominated.

Which "John C. Reilly Award" winner has the best threesome of same-year Oscar-nominated Best Picture movies?

Note: Fritz Leiber and Donald Woods in 1937 accomplished this rare feat together appearing in the same three movies. Poll takers can use either the actors themselves or another of their films from the same year as a tiebreaker if the Anthony Adverse, The Story of Louis Pasteur, A Tale of Two Cities group is their first choice answer option. Fritz Leiber Tiebreaker Movie: Sins of Man, Down to the Sea, Hearts in Bondage or Under Two Flags Donald Woods Tiebreaker Movie: Isle of Fury, A Son Comes Home, The White Angel or Road Gang

The “John C. Reilly” distinction was coined by Griffin Newman, star of “The Tick (2017)” in early 2018.

Michael Stuhlbarg achieved this last year with The Shape of Water, Call Me by Your Name and The Post.  Until, he did it only John C. Reilly had accomplished the feat in the past seventy-five years. Although, nowadays it is a bit unusual for a actor to have three movies out in a single year, it is not unheard of, especially for character actors whose roles require less time filming. It should be interesting to see how often this happens in future years with Oscar Best Pictures nominations being flexed from five to as many ten since the 2010 Oscars ceremony.

Doesn't seem the 2019 award season will have "John C. Reilly Award" winner. I would handicap John C. Reilly as the best longshot with four well-regarded movies released over the past two months.

2018 Holmes & Watson  Watson
2018 Ralph Breaks the Internet Ralph (voice)
2018 Stan & Ollie Oliver Hardy
2018 The Sisters Brothers  Eli Sisters

Might be a good poll for National Threesome Day on the 12th of October or  National Triple Day on 3rd of March .
