While working on a project, I came across some "factoids" that I think are interesting, but need fleshing out. I'm listing them here in the hopes you fine people can verify my current research or advise where I'm missing stuff.
Short Films nominated in more than one category:
Devil Take Us (1952)
Jet Carrier (1954)
The Battle of Gettysburg (1955)
The Face of Lincoln (1955)
The Dark Wave (1956)
Journey Into Spring (1958)
A Place to Stand (1967)
The Magic Machines (1969)
Sentinels of Silence (1971)
I believe these were all cross-overs between live-action and documentary short.
Films Nominated or Winning awards in different years
In Which We Serve (1942 & 1943)
The Emgrants (1971 & 1972)
Amarcord (1974 & 1975)
Day for Night (1973 & 1974)
Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion (1970 & 1971)
My Night at Maud's (1969 & 1970)
I thought there were more than this, but these were the only ones I found.
Non-Best Picture Nominees to Have Two Acting Nominees in the Same Category:

Almost Famous (2000) - Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand
Paper Moon (1973) - Madeline Kahn, Tatum O'Neal
It's a rather small list. I'm curious if far more Best Picture nominees than non-Best Picture nominees accomplished double acting nominations. Almost all of these are Supporting Actress, which is a further bit of interesting information.
Non-Best Picture Nominees to Have Two or More Song Nominees:
Philadelphia (1993) - "Philadelphia" / "Streets of Philadelphia"
Dreamgirls (2006) - "Listen" / "Love You I Do" / "Patience"
Yentl (1983) - "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" / "The Way He Makes Me Feel"
Cold Mountain (2003) - "Scarlet Tide" / "You Will Be My Ain True Love"
Fame (1980) - "Fame" / "Out Here On My Own"
The Lion King (1994) - "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" / "Circle Of Life" / "Hakuna Matata"
Footloose (1984) - "Footloose" / "Let's Hear It For The Boy"
Enchanted (2007) - "Happy Working Song" / "So Close" / "That's How You Know"
The Bodyguard (1992) - "I Have Nothing" / "Run To You"
The Little Mermaid (1989) - "Kiss The Girl" / "Under The Sea"
White Nights (1985) - "Say You, Say Me" / "Separate Lives (Love Theme From 'White Nights')"
I believe there are far few Best Picture nominees to accomplish this. Beauty and the Beast is the only one I can think of.
Non-Best Picture Nominees with Actors in All Four Categories:
My Man Godfrey (1936)
Is this the only one? I admit I wasn't watching closely for this, so I may have missed one or two. That's certainly an interesting statistic if true.
