Correct me if I’m wrong.
Benecio Del Toro (Traffic) and Kate Winslet (The Reader) are the only performers to win at SAG and the Oscars for the same role but in different categories.ReplyCopy URL

Yep and multiple times in LEAD.
Olivier awards wins for best actress: 4
BAFTA TV award wins for best actress: 3
BAFTA film award wins for best actress: 2
No other thespian has multiple wins in all three categories.ReplyCopy URL
FYC: Better Call Saul, The English and The Good Fight in all categories including Emily Blunt, Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

One single production completed three unique EGOTs. (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert gave Andrew Lloyd Webber, Tim Rice, and John Legend their needed Emmy win.) This made John Legend the second-youngest person at the time of achieving his EGOT; composer Robert Lopez holds the record. Since then, Lopez has completed a second EGOT, a unique feat! His wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez is one Tony away from an EGOT of her own.
Speaking of second-youngest: if Cumberbatch takes the BAFTA this March, he will become the second-youngest Triple Crown winner. The youngest: Judi Dench’s first run.ReplyCopy URL

2016 is the first and only Emmy ceremony where no network received more than one nomination in the Drama Series category. That feat has never been achieved in the Comedy Series category.ReplyCopy URL

Katharine Hepburn is the only actor who has ever lived to win four Oscars. All in lead category.
Frances McDormand or Daniel Day-Lewis are the only actors with three leading Oscars.ReplyCopy URL

Ironically, losing many categories (including Director & Screenplay) to another period romance starring Leo, Baz Lurhman’s Romeo + Juliet.ReplyCopy URLFebruary 19, 2022 at 7:37 am #1204809555

Yes. They really love Lurhman (Moulin Rouge got 12 BAFTA Noms).
People should have seen the Titanic shutout coming when the BAFTAs snubbed the British Rose for Actress.ReplyCopy URLApril 3, 2022 at 8:30 am #1204895735
