Alicia Vikander has joined an exclusive club of double acting nominees with a Best Actress in a Leading Role nomination for The Danish Girl and a Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Ex Machina. The recognition comes after a breakout year for the actress. In addition to the two films, Vikander appeared in The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and Burnt in 2015. This year only promises to get bigger for the 27-year-old actress, who is set to appear opposite rumored boyfriend Michael Fassbender in The Light Between Oceans and the latest Bourne film with Matt Damon.
