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

How many times have both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor gone to the same film at the Oscars?
Two films in contention at this year’s Oscars earned nominations for both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor: “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and “A Star is Born.” How likely is it that one of these combos will both win Academy Awards on Feb. 24? In the 82 years since the supporting awards were introduced at the 9th Oscars, only six films could boast victories in both these races.

The most recent of these dynamic duos from the same film were last year’s winners for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”: leading lady Frances McDormand and supporting player Sam Rockwell. The others were:

Karl Malden and Vivien Leigh for “A Streetcar Named Desire” – 1952

Melvyn Douglas and Patricia Neal for “Hud” – 1964

Joel Grey and Liza Minnelli for “Cabaret” – 1973

Jack Nicholson and Shirley MacLaine for “Terms of Endearment” – 1984

Morgan Freeman and Hilary Swank for “Million Dollar Baby” – 2005

Predict the Oscar winners now; change them until Feb.
