List of actors nominated for two Academy Awards in the same year

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated actors and actresses for two Academy Awards in a single year since 1938. Provided that they receive enough votes from the Academy in both categories to earn a nomination, there are no restrictions on actors being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor or actresses being nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress in any given year.cite web|url=http://www.oscars.org/80academyawards/rules/rule06.html|title=Rule 6 | 80th Academy Awards Rules|publisher=Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences|accessdate=2008-07-30] The sole rule in regards to multiple nominations is that an actor or actress cannot receive multiple nominations for the same performance. This rule was introduced in 1944 when Barry Fitzgerald received a Best Actor nomination and a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance in "Going My Way".cite web|url=http://awardsdatabase.oscars.org/ampas_awards/help/statistics/actingtwoinone.html|title=Two in One Acting|publisher=Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences|date=2008-03-08|accessdate=2008-07-30]
