Each year actors and actresses compete for the major awards to recognize excellence in the field of acting. In the history of cinema and film awards, 11 actors and 13 actresses have won the five awards generally considered to be the most important annual awards given for the big screen (the Academy Award, the BAFTA Award, the Golden Globe Award, the Screen Actors Guild Award and the Critics' Choice Award).[1] Geoffrey Rush is the first person to accomplish this, while Julia Roberts is the first woman. Daniel Day-Lewis is the only person to achieve this feat twice. Jamie Foxx is the first African-American to do this. Jennifer Hudson is the first person to achieve this for her film debut.

Criteria[edit]

The actor must have been nominated by all five organisations for one performance in one movie. The actor must then win all five of them competitively. A win is still counted if different organisations consider it to be a leading or supporting role, as long as the actor still wins the award.

Awards[edit]

For the purposes of this page, only the main award in each category is considered the award. The exception to this is obviously the Golden Globe with its division between "Musical or Comedy" and "Drama". Awards that do not count include the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Cast for the purposes of a SAG win, nor the BAFTA Rising Star Award for the purposes of the BAFTA. For the Critics' Choice Award, only the Best Actor/Actress/Supporting Actor/Supporting Actress categories are considered, not the periphery awards such as "Best Actor in an Action Movie" or "Best Actress in a Comedy".
