Sylvia Miles was nominated for an Oscar two times. Both were accounted for her supporting roles in 1969's Midnight Cowboy and 1975's Farewell My Lovely. In the former movie, she had only performed for about 6 minutes and in the latter one, 8 minutes. That was the level of her brilliance.

She also got bigger projects like Wallstreet: Money Never Sleeps, Zero To Sixty, Shalimar and many more.
