Five Oscar-winning actors who have won in other categories
What company is George Clooney likely to join on Sunday?
Hyphen-happy diva Streisand makes this elite club by a single vote. The single vote, that is, that won the then 26-year-old singing sensation a Best Actress Oscar for her vibrant big-screen debut in "Funny Girl" (1968) -- the award she famously shared with the venerable Katharine Hepburn, in the last voting tie in Academy history. Eight years later, the only person Streisand had to share her second Oscar with was her lyricist, Paul Williams, as the pair claimed the 1976 Best Original Song Oscar for "Evergreen," her hit love theme from "A Star is Born." It made her the first actress in Oscar history to win for another discipline, though Streisand had perhaps set out with higher awards hopes for the critically pasted remake of the Hollywood warhorse. Still, at least she won something for it -- more than she did for her directorial efforts "Yentl" (where she missed out on a Best Director nod despite a Golden Globe win) and "The Prince of Tides" (which netted her a Best Picture nod, but once more fell short of the Best Director circle). "In Hollywood, a woman can be an actress, a singer, a dancer... but don't let her be too much more," she said in response to the "Yentl" disappointment. Hey, at least the Academy let her be a songwriter.
"Funny Girl" (1968) - Best Actress
