Jack Nicholson Oscars Memories: A Look Back On Jack At The Academy Awards

02/24/2013 08:18 pm ET

Jack Nicholson will appear at the 2013 Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 24. This marks the first Academy Awards ceremony Nicholson has attended since 2008.

It's possible that Nicholson will present Best Picture on Sunday night. "Argo" is expected to win that award, with "Lincoln" and "Silver Linings Playbook" as possibilities as well.

Nicholson is a three-time Oscar winner and 12-time nominee. He won Best Actor at the 1976 ceremony for "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest." (Here he is with Michael Douglas, Milos Forman, Louise Fletcher, and Saul Zaentz at the 48th annual Academy Awards.)

His second Oscar came in 1984 for "Terms of Endearment" (Nicholson won for Best Supporting Actor).

Nicholson took home his third award -- and second Best Actor crown -- in 1998 for "As Good As It Gets."

Nicholson was a fixture at the Oscars during the 1970s and 1980s, receiving nine nominations between 1970 and 1988. Here's a photo of Nicholson from the 1972 ceremony with Sally Kellerman (L) and Michelle Phillips.

Ben Affleck Is Not Into Oscar Punditry

From backstage at the Oscars:

When did you feel a tipping point in your favor for this film?

Clooney: Michelle Obama.

Ben: When they gave us the trophies I was confident that we would win. I don’t get too much into the Oscar-ology and the pontificating. It doesn’t help me to read up on that stuff.

Was it uncomfortable wearing the beard?

What do you mean? No it's just a beard. Do you wear your hair? It was my very own beard.

How Movies Change During Oscar Season

Here's Awards Daily blogger Sasha Stone just after "Argo" won Best Picture.

@ AwardsDaily :

See, I told you Argo was Crash incarnate. Won the same amount of awards even.

Here's Sasha Stone on "Argo" back in October:

Have you ever seen a movie where you walk out saying, “That was just a great f--king movie”? That’s Ben Affleck’s Argo. Inexplicably, a film that draws its strength from humor and suspense, winds up being more moving the second time through. Perhaps because once you have been through the suspense part of it you get to know the characters better and therefore care about their outcomes more.

Daniel Day-Lewis' Meryl Streep Joke

“It’s a strange thing, because three years ago, before we decided to do a straight swap, I had actually been committed to play Margaret Thatcher, um...” he joked. “And Meryl was, was Steven’s first choice for ‘Lincoln.’ And I’d like to see that version. And Steven didn’t have to persuade me to play Lincoln, but I had to persuade him that, perhaps, if I was going to do it, that Lincoln shouldn’t be a musical.”
