|Sigourney Weaver: The first loser in both acting categories.|
Eleven actors - Fay Bainter, Teresa Wright, Barry Fitzgerald, Jessica Lange, Sigourney Weaver, Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Emma Thompson, Julianne Moore, Jamie Foxx and Cate Blanchett - have been nominated for two acting Oscars in the same year. Of those eleven, Weaver, Thompson, Moore and Blanchett lost in both categories, while the rest took home one statuette.
This gives the ladies special distinction, as no man has ever lost when doubly nominated. Weaver and Moore even have their own interesting statistic: they're the only women ever nominated for two acting Oscars in the same year who've lost both, despite not being a previous winner. In other words, Blanchett and Thompson already had an Oscar when they lost in both categories.
Tom Hanks could also join this list if he's recognized for Captain Phillips and Saving Mr. Banks in a few months. However, he could do more than that by becoming the first man to lose in both categories. Since he doesn't look like a frontrunner in either category (and he already has two Oscars), he could very well find himself with his own odd Oscar statistic.
