When Casey Affleck won the Best Actor Oscar this year, he joined a group even more elite than Oscar winners: Oscar-winning siblings. Because big brother Ben Affleck already has two Oscars. Here are some of the other siblings who both scored Academy Awards.
Joel and Ethan Coen
The brothers who make films together are more likely to earn Oscars together. Joel and Ethan Coen share four Oscars: Best Picture, Directing, and Screenplay honors for “No Country for Old Men” as well as an Oscar for writing “Fargo.”
Shirley Maclaine and Warren Beatty
This famous brother and sister took very different career paths, but both led to Oscar. Warren Beatty won Best Director for 1981's “Reds” and sister Shirley MacLaine won Best Actress for her role in 1983's “Terms of Endearment.”
Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland
Joan Fontaine and sister Olivia de Havilland had an epic lifelong rivalry: Fontaine won the Oscar first -- Best Actress for 1941's “Suspicion” -- but De Havilland won Best Actress twice (for 1946's “To Each His Own” and 1949's “The Heiress”). Rivalry settled?
Lionel and Ethel Barrymore
Acting legends Lionel Barrymore and Ethel Barrymor (aka great-uncle and great-aunt to Drew Barrymore) both won Oscars. Lionel won Best Actor for 1931's “A Free Soul” (although he's best remembered as evil Mr. Potter in “It's a Wonderful Life.”) Ethel won Best Supporting Actress for her role in the 1944 Cary Grant film, “None but the Lonely Heart.”
The Sherman Brothers
Songwriting brothers Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman's music is one of the reasons we love Disney films “The Jungle Book” and “The Aristocats.” They were nominated several times and won Best Song (“Chim Chim Cher-ee”) and Best Score for “Mary Poppins.”
Paul and Richard Sylbert
James & William Goldman
William Goldman won Academy Awards for his screenplays for “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969) and “All the President's Men” (1976). Brother James Goldman won a screenplay award for “The Lion in Winter” (1968), based on his play of the same name.
Chris and Neil Corbould
British brothers Chris and Neil Corbould have each carved out impressive -- and award-winning -- careers as visual effects artists. Chris won Best Achievement in Visual Effects for “Inception” (2010) and brother Neil won the same awards for “Gladiator” (2000) and “Gravity” (2014). Out of this world!
