Another non-record, but an exceedingly rare achievement… If Bradley Cooper wins Best Actor and Best Director for Maestro, he’ll join a rarified club that only includes Laurence Olivier for Hamlet in 1949, and Roberto Benigni for Life is Beautiful in 1999. The club meets every Tuesday at 4pm, and if you don’t make three meetings you’re kicked out of the club. Just kidding.
