Scarlett Johansson Scores First and Second Oscar Nominations in Same Year

January 14, 2020

With nods like this, it's like she won already.

Scarlett Johansson earned her first and second Oscar nominations this year.

In addition to scoring her first nominations, Johansson became one of just a dozen actors who received two nominations in acting categories within the same year, CNN reports.

On Monday, Johansson was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Jojo Rabbit" and Best Actress for her role in "Marriage Story."

This honor is very rare. The last actress who scored two nominations was Cate Blanchett, who was nominated in the lead category for "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" and in the supporting category for "I'm Not There." Blanchett did not win that year.

Johansson will will face off against Saoirse Ronan ("Little Women"), Charlize Theron ("Bombshell"), Renée Zellweger ("Judy") and Cynthia Erivo ("Harriet") in the lead actress category.

In the lead actress category, Johansson will compete against Kathy Bates ("Richard Jewell"), Laura Dern ("Marriage Story"), Florence Pugh ("Little Women") and Margot Robbie ("Bombshell").

No actor or actress has ever picked up two Oscar statues in acting categories in the same year.
