Also makes her the most Oscar winning Australian on the same night as Cate Blanchett collected her second and became the most Oscar winning Australian actor.
In a nice bit of symmetry, the most nominated Australians (with six nominations apiece) are.....Catherine Martin and Cate Blanchett.
I find it shocking that Orry-Kelly had only four nominations when he was one of the biggest names in costume design at the time. That aside, he did win three times for An American in Paris, Les Girls, and Some Like It Hot, while failing to win for Gypsy.
