    Over the course of Oscar history, several roles have earned multiple nominations for actors. Take, for instance, Anthony Hopkins and Frank Langella (both of who were nominated, and lost, for portraying Richard Nixon); Laurence Olivier and Kenneth Branagh (nominated for turns as Henry V); and Judi Dench and Kate Winslet (as Iris Murdoch).

    What roles, however, have scored multiple Oscar wins for actors?

    This year, of course, Tom Hanks hopes to achieve this feat with his portrayal of Ben Bradlee (a role which won Jason Robards an Oscar for All the President’s Men) in The Post.

    Vivien Leigh (A Streetcar Named Desire) and Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)

    The characters of Blanche and Jasmine are similar and Blanchett has always said that she based her character on DuBois.

    They aren’t same roles though. In a vacuum, you may be correct, but I think you may need to be more strict in that way.

    Well there is only one occasion that this has STRICTLY happened. So I suppose the thread ends now?

    Sequels count… more impressive than two people playing the role.

    Besides Blanchett…

    Paul Newman got two nominations for The Hustler and The Color of Money.

    Sylvester Stallone got two nods as Rocky.

    Bing Crosby for Going My Way and The Bells of St Mary’s.

    Newman and Crosby won.

    And Peter O’Toole as Henry V, in Becket and The Lion in Winter (which is not a sequel).

    The only example is Vito Corleone (I think). Don’t want to sound shitty, but what was the point of this thread?

    Please read the title of the thread. The key word is even in uppercase.

    That’s Henry II, not V.

    Since WEST SIDE STORY is a very explicit, modernized adaptation of ROMEO AND JULIET, it seems perfectly appropriate to add George Chakiris and Basil Rathbone (respectively) to this list. Even though their character names are different (Bernardo vs. Tybalt), they play the exact same role in the parallel stories.

    (this is in reference to expanding the thread comments to nominees, since only one–Chakiris–actually won)
