How many times have both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress gone to the same film?

One film in contention at this year’s Oscars earned nominations for both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress: “Vice.” How likely is it that leading man Christian Bale and supporting player Amy Adams will both win Academy Awards on Feb. 24? In the 82 years since the supporting awards were introduced at the 9th Oscars, a six lucky seven films could boast victories in both these races.

While this is the second most common of the four winningcombinations behind actress/supporting actress, it is also the one that has not happened in the longest time. The last such duo from the same film to both win were Brenda Fricker and Daniel Day-Lewis for “My Left Foor” in 1990. This was the first of Day-Lewis’s three Best Actor trophies – he could’ve repeated this pairing last year with Lesley Manville for Paul Thomas Anderson’s sublime “Phantom Thread” but, sadly, neither of them won.
