    5 out of 20 have won Oscars for acting:
    Eddie Redmayne, Cate Blanchett (twice), Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Kate Winslet

    Tony winners: Bryan Cranston, Eddie Redmayne, and Mark Rylance

    Emmy winners: Bryan Cranston and Kate Winslet (Mark Ruffalo won for producing The Normal Heart)

    Most nominations: Cate Blanchett, her 7th nomination; Kate Winslet, her 7th nomination; Leonardo DiCaprio, his 5th nomination

    Matt Damon is an Oscar winner for Original Screenplay; this is his 3rd acting nomination (Good Willing Hunting and Invictus)

    2 each for The Revenant, Steve Jobs, The Danish Girl, Carol, and Spotlight. 15 films in all got major 6 nominations this year. (Mad Max: Fury Road is the only BP nominee that has no acting nominations)

    Oldest nominees: Sylvester Stallone and Charlotte Rampling (70 years old); Youngest nominee: Saoirse Ronan

    Films that got an acting nomination and no other nominations: Trumbo, Joy, Creed and 45 Years.

    Nominated last year and again this year: Eddie Redmayne (winner last year) and Mark Ruffalo.

    Films with the most major 6 nominations: Spotlight and The Revenant each have four. The Big Short and Room each have three. 2 each for Bridge Of Spies, Brooklyn, Carol, The Danish Girl, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Martian, and Steve Jobs

    Charlotte Rampling has the longest career; she was in Georgy Girl in 1966.

    Sylvester Stallone has a 39 year gap between acting nominations – Rocky in 1977 and now Creed in 2016. Both his nominations are for playing the same role.

    Kate Winslet got her first nomination for 1996’s Sense and Sensibility.

    Cate Blanchett got her first nomination for 1998’s Elizabeth.

    Leonardo DiCaprio got his first nomination for 1993’s What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?

    Matt Damon got his first nomination for 1997’s Good Will Hunting

    Both Winslet and Blanchett received their 4th Best Actress nominations, and each of them has been nominated in the Supporting Actress category 3 times. Both actresses are Australian.

    In the Best Actress category, there are two (young) american actresses and three foreigners: Australian, Irish and British.

    In the Best Actor category, 3 american actors compete with two british actors.

    In the Supporting Actress category, we have 3 american actresses, an Australian, and a Swedish-born british actress.

    In the Supporting Actor category, we have british born Bale (I think he’s considered an american actor?), two other british actors, and two american actors. (correct me if I’m wrong about Bale).

    Jennifer Lawrence is the youngest actress to get four nominations, I believe. At the age of 25, she’s bests Jennifer Jones’ record.

    Yes.  Curiously, she and Blanchett now both have 4 leading nominations and 3 supporting nominations.

    Co-nominees of THE AVIATOR (DiCaprio, Blanchett) and AMERICAN HUSTLE (Bale, Lawrence) are nominated.  And Alan Alda (another co-nominee of the AVIATOR) is in BRIDGE OF SPIES and Bradley Cooper (another co-nominee of HUSTLE) is in JOY.

    Although she has played an Australian in film before, Winslet is not Australian, but British!  Blanchett is Australian.

    Bale is British.

    Ruffalo now has three nominations all for Supporting Actor. If he gets a fourth in the future he’ll be tied for the record.

    Hardy’s in the two nomination leaders. Edward Norton did the same thing last year.

    It’s interesting to see 15 films nominated for what you consider to be the major awards (it’s 17 if you count the Screenplay categories). Interesting because I remember an article awhile back (probably in 2014) about how, ever since the BP field expansion, there has been less and less film nominated in the the major categories. It seems, in this year at least, that has been reversed
