When the best picture award is presented at this year's Oscars, only one of the nine nominated films will be crowned the winner, barring a tie or a repeat of last year's shocking La La Land and Moonlight mix-up.
But a number of actors have two or more chances to cheer for their costars. Timothee Chalamet, Lucas Hedges and Bradley Whitford are just some of the stars who appear in at least two of this year's best picture nominees, giving them multiple rooting opportunities.
The prolific Michael Stuhlbarg, meanwhile, has the rare John C. Reilly-like distinction of appearing in three best picture nominees: Call Me by Your Name, The Post and The Shape of Water.
While the seven men and one woman listed below appear in two or more films up for the Oscars' top prize, there are a number of other actors with parts in two films up for various Oscars.
For instance, Geraldine Singer is in both Get Out and Mudbound, which is up for best original song, best supporting actress, best adapted screenplay and best cinematography. Hugh Jackman is in best adapted screenplay contender Logan and best original song nominee The Greatest Showman. And his Greatest Showman co-star Michelle Williams also appears alongside supporting actor nominee Christopher Plummer in All the Money in the World. Alison Brie appears in The Post and best adapted screenplay nominee The Disaster Artist. And Three Billboards actors Woody Harrelson and Amanda Warren are, respectively, in War for the Planet of the Apes, nominated for best visual effects, and Roman J. Israel, Esq., nominated for best actor (Denzel Washington).
Read on to see who has stakes in multiple best picture nominees.
