Notes

A1 2 Bette Davis' performance in Of Human Bondage (1934) and Paul Muni's performance in Black Fury (1935) were not nominated for Oscars. As a result of Davis's failure to get a nomination, several influential people campaigned to have her name included on the list, so for that year, and the following year also, the Academy allowed a write-in vote. Technically this meant that any performance was eligible. At the 6th, 7th and 8th Academy Awards, the Academy publicly announced those that placed second and third in the vote, Davis placed third ahead of one official nominee and Muni placed second, ahead of three official nominees, and both Davis and Muni are listed on the Academy's official database as write-in nominees who placed in the final voting. From the 9th Academy Awards, the nominating committees were no longer used and the entire membership of each individual branch voted for the nominees in their respective categories.
B1 Laurence Olivier received a total of 11 Oscar nominations, winning one. In addition to his 10 acting nominations, he received a Best Director nomination for Hamlet (1948). Prior to 1951, the Academy Award for Best Picture was credited to the production company, not individual producers, so Olivier was not credited for the Best Picture nomination for Henry V (1946) or Best Picture win for Hamlet. Olivier also received two Honorary Oscars; one for bringing Henry V to the screen, and a second in 1979 for Lifetime Achievement.
C1 2 3 4 Denzel Washington, Leonardo DiCaprio, Shirley MacLaine and Will Smith have all received an additional nomination in a non-acting category. MacLaine in the Best Documentary Feature category as co-director of the 1975 film The Other Half of the Sky: A China Memoir, and Washington, DiCaprio and Smith in the Best Picture category; Washington for co-producing Fences (2016), DiCaprio for co-producing The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), and Smith for co-producing King Richard (2021).
D1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Actors who received multiple nominations without winning a competitive Oscar but did receive an honorary Oscar, are Greta Garbo (1955), Barbara Stanwyck (1982), Deborah Kerr (1994), Kirk Douglas (1996), Peter O'Toole (2003), Angela Lansbury (2013) and Gena Rowlands (2015), who all received the Academy Honorary Award, Rosalind Russell (1973), who received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, Judy Garland (1940), who received the Academy Juvenile Award, and Mickey Rooney, who received both the Academy Juvenile Award (1939) and the Academy Honorary Award (1983).
E1 2 At the 2nd Academy Awards only the Best Actor and Best Actress winners were announced. There was no announcement of nominations. The official Academy site states that "although not official nominations, the additional names in each category, according to in-house records, were under consideration by various boards of judges". Although unofficial, Ruth Chatterton's nomination at the 2nd ceremony (the first of her two) counts towards her total in the above lists, and Paul Muni's nomination at the 2nd ceremony, counts as one of his five nominations in the above lists (his write-in vote from 1935 is not counted).[6]
F1 2 3 Rules at the time of the first three Academy Award ceremonies allowed for a performer to receive a single nomination for their work in more than one film. At the 1st ceremony, Emil Jannings won Best Actor for his work in two films and Janet Gaynor won Best Actress for her work in three films. Richard Barthelmess also received a nomination for two films at the 1st ceremony. At the 3rd ceremony, George Arliss, Maurice Chevalier, Ronald Colman, Greta Garbo and Norma Shearer all received a single nomination for their work in two films. This is why the Academy lists Colman and Garbo as three-time nominees and Shearer as a five-time nominee. Barthelmess, Arliss and Chevalier are one-time nominees, so do not feature in the above lists. No official reason was ever given as to why Arliss and Shearer were named Best Actor and Best Actress for only one of the two films for which they were listed.
G1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Frances McDormand, George Clooney, Emma Thompson, Warren Beatty, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood have all won Oscars in non-acting categories. McDormand has seven Oscar nominations with four wins. In addition to her three Best Actress wins, she won for co-producing Best Picture winner Nomadland (2020). Clooney has eight Oscar nominations (four for acting, two for writing, one for directing and one for producing) with two wins. In addition to his win for Best Supporting Actor, he won Best Picture for co-producing Argo (2012). Thompson is a five-time nominee with two wins. In addition to her Best Actress win, she won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Sense and Sensibility (1995). Beatty is a 14-time nominee (four for acting, four for writing, four for producing and two for directing), winning Best Director for Reds (1981). Pitt is a seven-time Oscar nominee (four for acting, three for producing). In addition to his win for Best Supporting Actor, he won for co-producing Best Picture winner 12 Years a Slave (2013). Damon is a five-time nominee (three for acting, one for writing and one for co-producing 2016 Best Picture nominee Manchester by the Sea), winning the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay (shared with Ben Affleck) for Good Will Hunting (1997). Eastwood is an 11-time nominee (five for producing, four for directing, two for acting), winning four; Best Director and Best Picture for Unforgiven (1992) and Million Dollar Baby (2004). Both Eastwood (1995) and Beatty (2000) have also received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award.
H1 Bradley Cooper has a total of nine Oscar nominations. In addition to his four acting nominations, he has received a Best Adapted Screenplay nomination for A Star Is Born, and four nominations for Best Picture for co-producing American Sniper (2014), A Star Is Born (2018), Joker (2019), and Nightmare Alley (2021).
I1 At the 1st Academy Award ceremony, Charlie Chaplin received four nominations (including Best Actor) for his film The Circus, before the Academy decided to remove his name from the competitive categories and instead honor him with a special award. A letter sent by the Academy to Chaplin told him that they had "Unanimously decided that your name should be removed from the competitive classes, and that a special award be conferred upon you for writing, acting, directing and producing The Circus. The collective accomplishments thus displayed place you in a class by yourself". Chaplin went on to receive nominations for Best Actor, Best Writing and Best Picture (the latter credited to Charlie Chaplin Productions) for the 1940 film The Great Dictator and a Best Writing nomination for the 1947 film Monsieur Verdoux. He received a second Honorary Oscar at the 44th Academy Awards in 1972, before winning his sole competitive Oscar at the 45th Academy Awards in 1973 for Best Original Dramatic Score for his 1952 film Limelight, which was eligible for that years Oscars because it was not released in Los Angeles until 1972.[7]
