The Golden Globes and the Academy Awards don't always go hand in hand, whether its Best Picture, Best Director, or any of the acting or technical categories. There are a couple of reasons for this, mainly that there are two different voting bodies for each. The Golden Globes are voted on by the Hollywood Foreign Press, the Oscars by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

Additionally, the Golden Globes have separate categories for dramas and comedies/musicals. This splits the performances and subsequently causes mismatches when compared to the Oscars, which have one pool for each nomination category. Sometimes, however, an actor's performance is too powerful, too memorable to not be noticed by both. There are a handful of actors who won an Oscar and Golden Globe for the same role. Sometimes, the same actor has even won both awards more than once. Here is the complete list of the famous actors who won an Oscar and Golden Globe in the same year.

Vote up the best actors who double dipped during awards season, being showered with praise and shiny statues by both the Academy and the Hollywood Foreign Press.
