Multiple Film Appearances
The question of multiple film appearances has been raised. We will consider each performance independently, they will not be lumped together as some groups do. Should someone be nominated for more than one film the votes will be tallied independently for each performance. In a previous year Joaquin Phoenix and Frances McDormand were both nominated for two films in the same category. If we were to add them together it would make it unfair to other potential nominees who only appear in one film. This applies to all categories.
