Re: Oscars 2011

So perhaps this is pre-mature and I should ask this after Inception has been released...but does the Academy have a rule against multiple nominations for the same actor? Someone on the IMDB boards mentioned this and I guess I didn't realize this wasn't possible. In that case, I shall re-ask the question from above that nobody has yet answered

So I just came across a comment that caught my attention and I don't know a whole lot about the Oscar selection process so I thought I'd see if anyone here knew...

Can this actually happen?

Quote:
I felt that he was excellent in Shutter Island (possibly his best and certainly Oscar-worthy); however, if "Inception" turns out to be a great film and he does well in it (which I don't doubt either), then he may in fact split his own votes come Oscar time
That doesn't seem fair. Potentially having 2 great performances could lessen his chances of winning for either? I thought it was the other way around, the more films the better the chances. So for the actresses then, Helen Mirren could potentially split her votes FOUR ways?
