List of actors with two or more Academy Awards in acting categories

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Katharine Hepburn won four Academy Awards (all for Best Actress), more than any other actor or actress in the history of the award.
Katharine Hepburn won four Academy Awards (all for Best Actress), more than any other actor or actress in the history of the award.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has given Academy Awards to actors and actresses for their performances in films since its inception. Throughout the history of the Academy Awards, there have been actors and actresses who have received multiple Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, or Best Supporting Actress.[1] The only restriction is that actors cannot receive multiple nominations for the same performance.[2] This rule was implemented after Barry Fitzgerald received a Best Actor and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance in Going My Way.[3]

As of 2019, 42 actors and actresses have received two or more Academy Awards in acting categories. Katharine Hepburn leads the way with four Best Actress awards.[4] Five have won three Academy Awards: Ingrid Bergman (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress award),[5] Jack Nicholson (two Best Actor awards and one Best Supporting Actor award),[6] Walter Brennan (three Best Supporting Actor awards),[7] Meryl Streep (two Best Actress awards and one Best Supporting Actress award), and Daniel Day-Lewis (three Best Actor awards). Brennan was the first to receive three or more Academy Awards in 1940, followed by Hepburn in 1968, Bergman in 1974, Nicholson in 1997, Streep in 2011, and most recently Day-Lewis in 2012. Of the six, only Nicholson, Streep, and Day-Lewis are still living.

While there is no restriction on a performer winning the Best Actor/Actress and Best Supporting Actor/Actress awards in the same year for two different roles in two different movies, this has yet to happen.

  • ✪ Top 10 Actors Who Have Never Won An Oscar
  • ✪ National film award for best actor
  • ✪ Oscars 2018 Awards Winners List,All winner list of Oscars 2018 ,Best film/Best Director


It is officially Oscar night, whether you are tuning in to watch the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, the recognition of fantastic filmmaking, or to see Jennifer Lawrence fall up some stairs -- or over a parking cone -- OR, get drunk and tell Bradley Cooper to f off. There is something for everyone. This year's acting categories are stack, filled with actors like, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Olivia Colman, and Lady Gaga. All deserving nominees, but only one can win -- which leaves us with a hefty list of actors that in their long career have yet to win an Oscar. So today on Beyond the Screen I’m going to listing off some of the biggest names without that highly sought after golden statue. I’m Lucy McPhee, and this is the Top 10 Actors Who Have Never Won An Oscar. 10 Tom Cruise mean, Tom Cruise has never won an Oscar for the critically acclaimed Mission Impossible 1 through 6?! Yeah. I know. I’m shook. Judge all you want -- there is no denying that Tom Cruise has been in some phenomenal films, delivering even greater performances. He’s a controversial actor due to his controversial beliefs -- but that isn’t relevant. Cruise over the years has been nominated for three oscars, for: Jerry Maguire, Born On the Fourth of July, and Magnolia. In his later years he has deviated slightly from critically acclaimed movies -- opting for action flicks -- and gifting us with more and more Mission Impossibles. Honestly, I’m not upset. 9 Edward Norton American History X was a transformative film -- through it’s commentary on race in American -- the redemptive story of a white supremacist -- played by Norton. The film was eye opening -- devastating -- yet optimistic. How Norton didn’t nabb the Oscar is beyond me, missing out on the win thanks to ROBERTO BENIGNI in Life Is Beautiful. A win that most of us will never forget -- with the actor climbing on the back of the seats to get to the stage. But I digress. Norton has since starred in films such as Alita Battle Angel, Birdman, and Sausage Party. Birdman being the exception, it seems like Norton doesn’t have the Oscars on his mind these days. Opting for more enjoyable roles as opposed to Oscar favourites. However, I still have hope that one day Norton’s name will be called. 8 Sigourney Weaver It seems bizarre that we live in a world where Ellen Ripley has never won an Oscar -- for Alien alone -- I mean, my god, even ALIENS. How has she not nabbed the acclaimed prize? More shockingly, Weaver's last nomination was received in 1989 for her performance in Working Girl. Since the 80’s she has slowly transitioned away from your classic hollywood jerk-off film, to the films she wants to make. Starring in fan favourites like, Finding Dory, Cabin in the Woods, and even Avatar. The latter we should never discuss. Sadly there are 4 more films in development, so it seems unlikely that Weaver will ever get her hands on the award. At least not in the near future. 7 Ed Harris Harris’ portrayal of Richard Brown in The Hours is tragically beautiful -- yet unfortunately overpowered by the three female leads -- and of course, Nicole Kidman’s nose. Ed Harris is yet another actor with a prolific career in Hollywood, garnering 4 nominations since 1996, for works such as, Apollo 13, The Truman Show, Pollock, and of course, The Hours. In my opinion it is a disservice to the industry that Harris has yet to win an Oscar. But, I guess the same could be said for most of our list. 6 Annette Bening Bening is arguably one of the most underrated actresses of our time. Holding a prolific career that is envied by most -- yet here she is, on our list. Since 1991 she has garnered 4 Oscar nominations for performances in, The Grifters, American Beauty, Being Julia, and The Kids Are Alright. She’s actress much like many others on our list -- one that relies on subtly. Her performances are never overzealous, or overplayed -- but raw and human. And her performance in The Kids Are Alright presents that beautiful. With certainty I can say that Bening will one day win an Oscar, whether next year or in 10 years from now. Her name will be called. And it will be well deserved. 5 Robert Downey Jr. It’s hard not to see Robert Downey Jr as any character other than Tony Stark these days -- which I suppose is a compliment. Yet -- we have all sadly forgotten the impressive career RDJ has had outside of the Marvel Universe. Holding two Academy Award nominations, one for Chaplin, and the other, Tropic Thunder. The former gaining him immense praise and accolades, but Downey Jr unfortunately had the oscar snatched from him by Al Pacino for Scent of a Woman. I guess we can’t really argue with that. It’s hard to tell if an Oscar will ever be on the cards for Downey Jr, I mean, considering is on screen wife Gwyneth Paltrow has one, there could still be hope. Perhaps we could be seeing him grace the silver screen in an entirely different role to the genius Iron Man -- who, as of now, is floating around in space -- desperately waiting for Rocket to save him. 4 Joaquin Phoenix Joaquin Phoenix is Hollywood royalty -- having a place in the industry for the past 30 years -- along the way starring in great films such as Gladiator, Walk the Line, and The Master. Scoring Oscar nominations for all three. However, how he got snubbed for You Were Never Really Here is beyond me. In my opinion it his greatest work to date since Inherent Vice and Her. It’s hard to believe he has never nabbed a golden Oscar -- but we’re still holding out hope. 3 Amy Adams It’s hard to forget the telephone that just won't stop ringing, as Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman debate about his curious actions, while Amy Adams watches on. The stress of the conversation, and the ringing of the telephone showing on her face. She says nothing -- but she doesn’t have to. Her face says it all. She was nominated for an Oscar for Doubt, unfortunately she didn’t win, losing out Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona. This has sadly become a running trend for Amy Adams in her impressive career, having been nominated for, Junebug, Doubt, The Fighter, and American Hustle -- making it so close to the end but losing out at the finish line. Tonight she is nominated for playing Dick Cheney’s wife in Vice -- could tonight break the curse for Amy Adams? 2. Ralph Fiennes “Six hundred years ago, when elsewhere they were footing the blame for the Black Death, Casimir the Great - so called - told the Jews they could come to Krakow. They came. They trundled their belongings into the city. They settled. They took hold. They prospered in business, science, education, the arts. They came with nothing. And they flourished. For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. By this evening those six centuries will be a rumor. They never happened. Today is history.” In 1993, Fiennes played a German commander in one of the greatest films of our time, Schindler’s list. A film that tells the distressing story of the Holocaust in German-occupied Poland. Fiennes was a revelation -- receiving an oscar nomination for his performance, but losing out Tommy Lee Jones in The Fugitive. I’m still heartbroken. Who was also nominated in 1997 for The English Patient -- but has yet to win an Oscar. But for such a diverse actor -- you never know what he will deliver us next. Hope is still out there. 1 Glenn Close With such a prolific career in the film industry, it’s hard to imagine that the great Glenn Close has yet to win an Oscar. I like to pride myself on being a film buff -- but even this little nugget of information slipped past me. Glenn Close -- the actress who tricked us all back in 1991, when she had played the small role of a male pirate who met a grisly fate in the Disney classic, Hook. The phenomenal actress has been graced with a handful of nominations over previous years, for works such as: Albert Nobbs, Dangerous Liaisons, and Fatal Attraction who she lost to Cher in Moonstruck. CHER. However, many are holding out hope that tonight could be her night, after she picked up the Golden Globe for her performance in the 2019 film, The Wife. Well, there we have it! If you’re watching this after tonight’s award show, what did you think the winners? Did you agree? Leave us all your thoughts and feelings in the comments down below.
