List of actors with two or more Academy Awards in acting categories

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has given Academy Awards to actors and actresses for their performances in films since its conception. Throughout the history of the Academy Awards, there have been actors and actresses that have received multiple Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, or Best Supporting Actress. The only restriction in regards to actors winning multiple awards is that they cannot win multiple Academy Awards in the same year for the same performance.cite web|url=http://www.oscars.org/80academyawards/rules/rule06.html|title=Rule 6 - 80th Academy Awards|publisher=Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences|accessdate=2008-08-21] This rule was implemented after Barry Fitzgerald won an Academy Award for Best Actor and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in "Going My Way".cite web|url=http://awardsdatabase.oscars.org/ampas_awards/help/statistics/actingtwoinone.html|title=Persons nominated in two acting categories in the same year|publisher=Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences|date=2008-03-08|accessdate=2008-08-21]
