Scarlett Johansson doubles up in Oscars acting nods. That hasn’t happened in 13 years

Unlike with the Golden Globes and BAFTAs, motion picture academy rules also stipulate that a performer cannot be nominated twice in the same category in the same year (i.e., Johansson could not have been nominated for lead actress for both “Marriage Story” and “Jojo Rabbit,” or Brad Pitt could not have been nominated for lead actor this year for both “Ad Astra” and “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood”). If the same actor gets enough votes to have two performances nominated in the same category, the performance with fewer votes is disqualified.
