Everyone knows four-time champ Katharine Hepburn has won the most Best Actress Oscars, not to mention the most Oscars for acting ever. Daniel Day-Lewis (“Phantom Thread”) and Meryl Streep (“The Post”) could tie her this year at four, but they probably won’t. Hepburn is one of 13 women who’ve won the category more than once, but everyone else is stuck at two. Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) could join the group this year, which would also make her, at 60, one of the category’s oldest winners.
But do you which two-time Best Actress champ used to live in a car? Or who was the only performer to win an Oscar for an Alfred Hitchcock film? Or who was the first to win for a performance in a foreign language? Or who acted under her birth name until her future husband and movie mogul gave her a stage name?
