Live Poll: Most Worthy Multi-Oscar Nominated Characters

The actor or actress make the performance great, but having a great character to channel certainly helps. A Star Is Born (2018) is a timely example, as both lead characters have been previously nominated multiple times. Early Oscar buzz about Lady Gaga's and Bradley Cooper's performances has moviegoers hoping if nominated, the third time will be the charm, as both characters have been twice nominated, but have never won an Oscar. All of these movie characters have garnered multiple Oscar nominations, sometimes portrayed by the same actor and in other instances by multiple actors.

Which memorable multiple Oscar nominated character is the most worthy of their repeated nominations?

Rocky is the only on the list character on the list to be featured in 8 different movies. I don't know much about Star Wars, but I don't think even they have a character that's been in 8 movies let alone as a central character.

Rocky's feat is most impressive at 8/8.

Darth Vader
(also known as Anakin Skywalker) appears in six of the live-action Star Wars films (chapters 1-6), Plus, the first anthology film Rogue One and the 2008 3D animated film The Clone Wars. He matches the total, but does not appear at all in the last two films of the final trilogy or the Solo anthology film.
