Daniel Day-Lewis, Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington each have multiple Oscars (three, three and two, respectively), while Frances McDormand, Octavia Spencer, and Christopher Plummer all have one previous Oscar win.
All six actors have been nominated for a least one previous Oscar in addition to Willem Dafoe, Woody Harrelson, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, Gary Oldman and Saoirse Ronan. One of Denzel Washington's previous nominations is for best picture, a nod he earned as serving as producer on Fences (he also directed and starred in the film).
Mary J. Blige, Timothee Chalamet, Allison Janney, Daniel Kaluuya, Lelsey Manville, Laurie Metcalf, Margot Robbie and Sam Rockwell are all being recognized by the Academy for the first time. Blige is nominated for both acting and best original song.
Meryl Streep currently holds the record for the most nominated actor in Oscar history (21 nominations in total with three wins), while Katharine Hepburn holds the current record for most Oscar wins for an actor, at four.
