I especially concur with two choices: 'winner of five nominations' and 'icon/iconic.'
A nomination is not a win. Yes, one is being singled out, along with others in a certain category, but one is not a winner.
As the late George Carlin pointed out in his last stand-up, 'folks, not everyone is a winner.' Exactly. We cannot all be winners now, can we? A few win, others lose and a great many reside in-between.
And, what about the high-frequency use of icon/iconic? There cannot be so many icons out there, can there? Perhaps, a list of other synonyms could be introduced here?
Here is the full list published by Lake Superior State University.
