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.

Previous double acting nominees include Kate Winslet and Cate Blanchett -- both up for awards this year -- among others.

Blanchett has plenty reason to celebrate as well. Her stylish relationship drama, Carol, tied Steven Spielberg’s Cold War thriller, Bridge of Spies, for the most nominations with nine each. The two films face off in most of the major awards including Best Film and Best Director.

The winners will be announced during a ceremony hosted by Stephen Fry on Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016.
