    We always talk about how the Oscars love to reward movies about movies. An X factor that works in favor of the two most recent BP nominees Argo and The Artist.

    But I wonder if this extends to actors and not just the industry? How many actors have won oscars for playing actors? We all know knows the career that seems to get the job done the most… haha but you’d think playing an actor would work pretty well? Or maybe it’s too close to home for some

    The most recent example would be Jean Dujardin, who knows any others?

    Was Velma Kelly an actress or just stage performer? If the former, can we count Effie White (Jennifer Hudson, “Dreamgirls”) and Ray Charles (Jamie Foxx, “Ray”) too?
