    At the Oscars they can’t. What are the Emmy rules. (They change so much. I know Lee Grant beat herself for an Emmy where she had two of the three nominations in the 70s.)

    I’m wondering if Cate Blanchett could be looking at two nominations this year.

    You can get two nominations in the same category unless you are a director. It was also prohibited in guest for years, but that is over now. Blanchett’s performances are in different categories though.

    Man you are good with those rules Riley. The Academy needs to hire you.

    Has anyone other than Lee Grant had double nominations?

    I know that nobody has done it in lead.  Liev Schreiber did it in narrator three years ago.

    Actually doesn’t it apply to writing as well? I mean: A writing can get two nominations, even three, but only if they’re co-writing credits and are submitted by the other writer.

    Yes, that is correct, but is not the same, because like this a writer can get multiple nominations in the same category. For a director there is no such option.

    That writing thing is a loophole that also applies to editing and other categories where you have teams of people doing the same job on a given episode together. Where directors (and technical directors, but not nonfiction or reality directors) differ is that everyone else can have multiple submissions per category even without that loophole if they are for different shows. David E. Kelley for example could submit and get nominated both Big Little Lies and Mr. Mercedes in drama writing this year, but Jason Bateman has to choose whether to submit The Outsider or Ozark for drama directing.
