Sally Field could set a record at this year's Oscars by becoming the first performer to win three awards without ever losing. 

The two-time Best Actress champ is featured in the new Steven Spielberg film "Lincoln." Her baity role is Mary Todd Lincoln, the First Lady and wife of President Abraham Lincoln, notorious for her public outbursts, mood swings, fierce temper and excessive spending habits.

Our Gold Derby odds for Best Supporting Actress have Field in fourth place at 11/2. Anne Hathaway ("Les Miserables") is currently predicted to prevail with odds of 9/5. Amy Adams ("The Master") and Helen Hunt ("The Sessions") are tied in second position at 4/1.

Field's only two Oscar nominations in a four-decade career each resulted in victories: "Norma Rae" (1979) and "Places in the Heart" (1984).

She was the fourth woman to go two for two at the Oscars, following: 

Luise Rainer: Best Actress, "The Great Ziegfeld (1936); Best Actress, "The Good Earth" (1937).

Vivien Leigh: Best Actress, "Gone with the Wind" (1939); Best Actress, "A Streetcar Named Desire" (1951).

Helen Hayes: Best Actress, "The Sin of Madelon Claudet" (1931); Best Supporting Actress, "Airport" (1970).

Since then, Hilary Swank has won both her Best Actress bids: "Boys Don't Cry" (1999) and "Million Dollar Baby" (2004).

The only man to win both of his Oscar races is Kevin Spacey: Best Supporting Actor, "The Usual Suspects" (1995); Best Actor, "American Beauty" (1999).

Katharine Hepburn is the overall Oscar champ with four wins from 12 nominations, all in the Best Actress race.

Field would join a quartet of three-time winners: Ingrid Bergman, who won two of her six Best Actress bids and her only Supporting Actress nomination; Walter Brennan, who won the first three of his four Supporting Actor races; Jack Nicholson, who won two of his eight Best Actor nods and one of his four for Supporting Actor; and Meryl Streepwho prevailed with two of her record 14 Best Actress nominations and one of her four for Supporting Actress.
