There is a complete list of Academy Award winners and nominees for 80+ years.
The JMP File I have attached has only the Actor/Actress awards for leading and supporting roles. I have amended the data to include how many times each Nominee has received a nomination for leading or supporting roles and the first year they were nominated.
My question was whether individuals with more nominations (say a Merle Streep or a Jack Nicholson) was more likely to win. Exploring the data finds some interesting results, it seems that there is a growing trend of nominating less experienced (less nominations) among leading actor roles. I think this may be neat data to play with in a classroom setting.
