Who won 2 acting Emmys in same year?
Who won Oscar & Emmy in same calendar year? Other than Helen Mirren and Helen Hunt, that is. Not Holly Hunter. Hers were one year apart.
Everybody knows the case of Stockard Channing, who won for Drama Supporting Actress with The West Wing and Movie/Mini Supporting Actress with The Matthew Shepard Story.
George C. Scott won an Emmy and Oscar in the same year for Patton and Drama Performance for a a Hallmark Hall of Fame production.
James Earl Jones won 2 Emmy awards in 1991 for Lead Actor Drama for Gabriel’s Fire and Supporting Actor Mini- Series for Heat Wave.
I also forgot that Liza Minnelli won the Oscar for Lead Actress for Cabaret and the Emmy Award for Liza With A Z in 1973,
Shirley Knight won two Emmy’s in 1995 (guest and supporting mini/TV movie). Her perfomance in the “Indictment” movie (for which she tied with Judy Davis) was haunting.
Cicely Tyson won 2 Emmys in the same night in 1974 both for Jane Pittman.
In 1990, Kevin Costner won twice for Directing and Producing Dances with Wolves. Same with Clint Eastwood for Unforgiven.
Hmm….will Martin Freeman win 2 this year?
David Fincher won an Emmy for directing House of Cards last year and a Grammy this year for directing the “Suit & Tie” music video. If he wins for Gone Girl this year that seems like a huge record!
Oh I just noticed this said actors. Oh well
Cloris Leachman won 2 emmys in 1975. 1 for single performance by a supporting actress in a comedy or drama series – “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and the other for supporting actress in variety – for an episode of “Cher.”
Colleen Dewhurst won 2 emmys in 1989. 1 for supp actress in minisseries or special for “Those She Left Behind” and the other for guest actress in a comedy series for “Murphy Brown.”
I personally don’t count all the double wins in 1974. Cicely Tyson, Mary Tyler Moore, Alan Alda, etc. The super emmys, as someone coined them, were so stupid.
Glenda Jackson won two Emmys in 1972 for PBS’s Elizabeth R.
