    Christoph Waltz won his second supporting-actor Oscar under the direction of Quentin Tarantino: Inglourious Basterds (2009) and Django Unchained (2012).

    This happened with Dianne Wiest and her two supporting-actress Oscars under the direction of Woody Allen: Hannah and Her Sisters (1986) and Bullets Over Broadway (1994).

    My question: Is there anyone else, with more than one acting Oscar, who also struck gold winning under the direction of the same person?

    Jack Nicholson won 2 Oscars under the direction of James L. Brooks.

    He won Best Supporting Actor for Terms of Endearment (1983) and Best Actor for As Good as It Gets (1997).

    I was forgetting about that.

    It is interesting, with Waltz and Wiest at two statues, that all their wins come under the direction of the same person. (As already mentioned: for Waltz, it’s Quentin Tarantino. for Wiest, it’s Woody Allen.)

    (In the case of Nicholson, his 1975 best-actor win for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, was directed by Milos Forman.)    

    Thank you!

    We always keep forgetting about Walter Brennan who already had 3 Oscars in 1941. 2 of them were won for performances directed by William Wyler – “Come and Get It” and “Westerner”, 1st and 3rd respectively. 2nd, “Kentucky”, was directed by David Butler.

    The interesting thing about the Walter Brennan’s 1st win was that it was co-directed by Howard Hawks and William Wlyer. At least they were co-billed that way. Howard HAwks shot the first two-thirds, was fired by Sam Goldwyn who hired Wlyer to direct the remaining third of the film. Wyler himself didn’t want to replace Hawks, but Goldwyn was going to suspend him if he didn’t. And Wyler never considered “Come and Get It” as part of his filmography and disowned it whenever he could. So, long story short, if it were up to William Wyler, Walter Brennan would not be in the club of actors and actress who have won for two films that were directed by the same director.
