Only Six Actors Have Ever Been Nominated Twice For The Same Role

Actors who win an Oscar are either lucky or part of a rigged process, depending on how you view the Academy and the way they've voted in the past, but winning an Oscar more than once sure makes you seem lucky.

And if that's true then actors who are nominated twice for the same role are surely the luckiest of them all.

And while nobody has ever won two Oscars for playing the same character only six actors have ever received more than one Academy Award nomination for playing the same role.

This year Sylvester Stallone was nominated for playing Rocky Balboa in Creedis, becoming the sixth star to join this super exclusive club that includes Paul Newman, Al Pacino, Peter O'Toole, Bing Crosby and Cate Blanchett.
