Could you check what I get from the sentences please?
1.This sentence doesn't much make sense because as if she is always nominated every year for the best director.
2.This sentence sounds good and implies she was already nominated but it is not clear if she won and it seems like the award ceremony finished.
3.This sentence implies her name has not been announced yet.She will be nominated and as if the person who can say this sentence already know that and share this information with somebody else.
4.I think this sentence has the same meaning with sentence 2.
5.I am not sure.there are two intimation.the first one could be she was nominated but because of she is DEAD now the sentence begins with "she was the third woman..." and all things happened in the past. AND the second meaning is that everybody was expected that she was going to be nominated but she was not and all things happened in the past.I am not sure which meaning connotes more.
