Only two actors were nominated by the Academy Awards and Razzies for the same role. One was James Coco in "Only When I Laugh" (1981). What's the other? To see the answer, click the "Continue Reading" link underneath the photos below.


ANSWER: Amy Irving ("Yentl"). Harvey Keitel and Jack Nicholson were nominated for Razzies for "Last Temptation" (1988) and "Hoffa" (1992), respectively, but not Oscars. Roberto Benigni won the Oscar for "Life Is Beautiful" (1997), of course, but that role wasn't up for a Razzie. He won a Razzie for "Pinocchio" (2002).
