    Shock's Trivia Question - Movie Edition

    OK, after getting THOROUGHLY embarassed by erik5032 on the last one, here's another - maybe one of you movie buffs out there can guess this one:

    Who is the only person to win an Academy Award for portraying someone who ALSO had won an Academy Award?
    PPO Ambassador, Defender of the Purple Faith and Guardian of the Gates of Valhalla

    I was thinking Jamie Foxx for portraying Ray Charles, but I wasn't sure if Ray ever won one.

    But then the answer hit me - it's Cate Blanchett, right?
    For, ummmm, that Howard Huges movie where she played Kate Hepburn?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    The only other ones I could think of was Rob Downey Jr for Chaplin but Downey didn't win

    Philip Seymour Hoffman won for Capote, but Capote never got an Oscar

    I think Zeus got it

    Yep, Zeus is correct. It's Cate Blanchett from "The Aviator" in which she played Katherine Hepburn.
