Poll: Most Worthy Multi-Oscar Nominated Characters

The actor or actress make the performance great, but having a great character to channel certainly helps. A Star Is Born (2018) is a timely example, as both lead characters have been previously nominated multiple times. Early Oscar buzz about Lady Gaga's and Bradley Cooper's performances has moviegoers hoping if nominated, the third time will be the charm, as both characters have been twice nominated, but have never won an Oscar. All of these movie characters have garnered multiple Oscar nominations, sometimes portrayed by the same actor and in other instances by multiple actors.

Which memorable multiple Oscar nominated character is the most worthy of their repeated nominations?
