Oscar deja lose: Amy Adams would be 5th performer to be defeated by the same person twice

Oscar deja lose: Amy Adams would be 5th performer to be defeated by the same person twice

History repeats itself, and it could happen again in the Best Supporting Actress race. Thirteen years ago, Rachel Weisz (“The Constant Gardener”) won the category over Amy Adams (“Junebug”), and the two are currently in a rematch for “The Favourite” and “Vice,” respectively. If Weisz prevails again, Adams would have the dubious honor of being the fifth actor to lose to the same person twice.

The first four people were:

1. Irene Dunne lost Best Actress for “Theodora Goes Wild” (1936) and “The Awful Truth” (1937) to Luise Rainer for “The Great Ziegfeld” (1936) and “The Good Earth” (1937)

2. Charles Boyer lost Best Actor for “Conquest” (1937) and “Algiers” (1938) to Spencer Tracy for “Captains Courageous” (1937) and “Boys Town” (1938)

3. Basil Rathbone lost Best Supporting Actor for “Romeo and Juliet” (1936) and “If I Were King” (1938) to Walter Brennan for “Come and Get It” (1936) and “Kentucky” (1938)

4. Annette Bening lost Best Actress for “American Beauty” (1999) and “Being Julia” (2004) to Hilary Swank
