...women nominated for Best Director in the history of the Oscars. (Happened to be looking up some Oscars history, and thought I'd post both lists in one post:
The five women nominated for Best Director: Lina Wertmuller (Seven Beauties-1976) Jane Campion (The Piano-1993) Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation-2003) Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker-2009) [won] Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird-2017)
The twelve people who wee nominated for two acting Oscars in the same year: Fay Bainter (1938-Best Actress in White Banners, Best Supporting Actress in Jezebel [won]) Teresa Wright (1942-Best Actress in The Pride of the Yankees, Best Supporting Actress in Mrs. Miniver [won]) Barry Fitzgerald (1944-Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor [won] in Going My Way)* Jessica Lange (1982-Best Actress in Frances, Best Supporting Actress in Tootsie [won]) Sigourney Weaver (1988-Best Actress in Gorillas in the Mist, Best Supporting Actress in Working Girl) Al Pacino (1992-Best Actor in Scent of a Woman [won], Best Supporting Actor in Glengarry Glen Ross) Holly Hunter (1993-Best Actress in The Piano [won], Best Supporting Actress in The Firm) Emma Thompson (1993-Best Actress in The Remains of the Day, Best Supporting Actress in In the Name of the Father) Julianne Moore (2002-Best Actress in Far from Heaven, Best Supporting Actress in The Hours) Jamie Foxx (2004-Best Actor in Ray [won], Best Supporting Actor in Collateral) Cate Blanchett (2007-Best Actress in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Best Supporting Actress in I'm Not There) Scarlett Johansson (2019-Best Actress in Marriage Story (pending), Best Supporting Actress in Jojo Rabbit (pending)
*Fitzgerald was nominated in both leading and supporting categories for the same role in the same film. The rules were subsequently changed to prevent this from happening.
