Seeing double

Wilson Webb/Netflix; Larry Horricks/Twentieth Century Fox

Scarlett Johansson made history Monday, becoming only the 12th actor ever to receive two Oscar nominations for acting in the same year (Best Actress for Marriage Story and Best Supporting Actress for Jojo Rabbit). We’ll have to wait until the Feb. 9 ceremony to see if she can be the first to win in both her categories. In the meantime, here’s a look at Johansson’s elite company.

Fay Bainter (1939)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, White Banners; Best Supporting Actress, Jezebel

Bainter won Best Supporting Actress but lost Best Actress to her Jezebel costar Bette Davis.

Teresa Wright (1943)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, The Pride of the Yankees; Best Supporting Actress, Mrs. Miniver

History repeated itself four years after Bainter’s win: Wright won Best Supporting Actress but lost Best Actress to Greer Garson, her costar in Mrs. Miniver. (Coincidentally, William Wyler directed both Miniver and Jezebel.)

Barry Fitzgerald (1945)

Everett Collection

Nominated For: Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, Going My Way

Fitzgerald won Best Supporting Actor, and he too lost the Leading Oscar to a costar, Bing Crosby. Fitzgerald is the only person ever to receive two Oscar nominations for the same performance; the Academy subsequently introduced a rule prohibiting this.

Jessica Lange (1983)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, Frances; Best Supporting Actress, Tootsie

It took close to 40 years for another double nomination after Fitzgerald. Lange took home the Best Supporting Actress trophy, losing Best Actress to Oscar’s favorite daughter, Meryl Streep, for Sophie’s Choice.

Sigourney Weaver (1989)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, Gorillas in the Mist; Best Supporting Actress, Working Girl

Weaver was the first double-nominated actor not to win in either category. Her performance as Diane Fossey in Gorillas in the Mist lost out to Jodie Foster in The Accused, while Geena Davis took Best Supporting Actress for The Accidental Tourist.

Al Pacino (1993)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actor, Scent of a Woman; Best Supporting Actor, Glengarry Glen Ross

Hoo-ahhh! Pacino (nominated again this year for The Irishman) won his first Oscar for playing a blind ex-Army official in Scent of a Woman, but forgivably lost Best Supporting Actor to Gene Hackman in Unforgiven.

Holly Hunter (1994)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, The Piano; Best Supporting Actress, The Firm

Hunter won Best Actress for The Piano, while her costar Anna Paquin took home Best Supporting — becoming one of the youngest Oscar winners ever, at age 11.

Emma Thompson (1994)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, The Remains of the Day; Best Supporting Actress, In the Name of the Father

Thompson lost both awards, to The Piano’s Hunter and Paquin. The 1994 ceremony is still the only time two actors have been double-nominated in one year.

Julianne Moore (2003)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, Far From Heaven; Best Supporting Actress, The Hours

Moore went home empty-handed in 2003, with her The Hours costar Nicole Kidman winning Best Actress and Catherine Zeta-Jones taking Best Supporting Actress for Chicago.

Jamie Foxx (2005)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actor, Ray; Best Supporting Actor, Collateral

Foxx took home Best Actor for playing Ray Charles, while Morgan Freeman earned his only Oscar win to date (if you can believe it), for Million Dollar Baby, in the Supporting category.

Cate Blanchett (2008)

Everett Collection (2)

Nominated For: Best Actress, Elizabeth: The Golden Age; Best Supporting Actress, I’m Not There

Playing Queen Elizabeth for the second time (she also earned a nod for 1998’s Elizabeth) and putting her own unique spin on Bob Dylan earned Blanchett a double nomination in 2008. She lost both: Best Actress to La Vie en Rose’s Marion Cotillard and Best Supporting Actress to Michael Clayton’s Tilda Swinton. (Blanchett had, however, already taken home Best Supporting at the 2005 ceremony, for The Aviator.)
