Octavia Spencer (6/7)

Here’s a crazy stat: No black woman who’s ever won an Academy Award has never been nominated for another. Spencer’s nomination broke that streak, so she’d be the first-ever black woman to win multiple Oscars if she snags a statue Sunday night. In 2012, she won Best Supporting Actress for The Help. She’s up for that same award this year for her portrayal of NASA pioneer Dorothy Vaughan in Hidden Figures, a movie about the African-American female mathematicians who played a vital role in the early years of the U.S. space program.
