Is it possible to shine on the screen without being in the lead roles? And how. Sometimes secondary characters are so charming that they steal the show. Take, for example, Christoph Waltz, whose minor roles do not prevent him from being loved and recognized. For your talent, he, of course, received a worthy award - an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. And more than once! Let's find out which other actors have won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor more than once.

Anthony Quinn

The Mexican-American actor won two Oscars for his roles in the films “Viva Zapata!” (1952) and Lust for Life (1956). And the film “Zorba the Greek” (1964), starring Quinn, became the highest-grossing film in Greece.

Peter Ustinov

The British actor of French origin (Ustinov-Benois family) was nominated three times for an Oscar for supporting roles and won twice. The film "Spartacus" (1960) received 4 Oscars, including Best Supporting Actor. The second award went to the actor for his role in the 1964 film “Topkapi”.
