Warren Beatty had already earned Oscar nominations as an actor and a writer and a producer before he got Oscar nominations as the actor and writer and producer and director of one movie; and then, after getting Oscar nominations as the actor and writer and producer and director of another movie, he went back to earning Oscar nominations as an actor and a writer and a producer.

Now, pulling off that actor/writer/producer/director bit for one film at the Oscars? That's rare; it's crazy rare. But pulling it off twice? AFAIK, that's unheard-of.

Of course, his real talent was getting folks to say "uh, it's not vanity if he's right."
