A Live Poll: Oscar Knows My Name

Live Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/p7lVSFbBs74/

.  Only one person named Oscar has won an Oscar. That would be Oscar Hammerstein II. Many characters have been named Oscar. Only one actor won! Edmond O'Brien as Oscar Muldoon in The Barefoot Contessa (1954). But many Actors have won an Oscar for a film that had a character's name in the title.

Who is your favorite Actor and their famous Character portrayal?

Many characters have been named named Oscar. No one won! But many actors have won an Oscar that had a character's name in the title.

Mr_Rogers,

FYI: Diane Keaton as Annie Hall may be the only semi-autobiographical film in which the actress received an Oscar for essentially playing herself.

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000473/bio

... In 1977, she [Diane Keaton] broke away from her comedy image to appear in the chilling Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977), which won her a Golden Globe nomination. It was the same year that she appeared in what many regard as her best performance, in the title role of Annie Hall (1977), which Allen wrote specifically for her (her real last name is Hall, and her nickname is Annie), and what an impact she made. She won the Oscar and the British Award for Best Actress, and Allen won the Directors Award from the DGA. ...

Edmond O'Brien won an Oscar for playing a character named Oscar Muldoon.
