Bette Davis - She could handle a cigarette, a man, and a gun.

She was nominated for an Academy Award 5 years in a row for movies in 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941 and 1942. She shares the record for most consecutive nominations with Greer Garson.

Bette claimed that she gave the Academy Award statue the nickname "Oscar" because she felt it resembled her husband, whose middle name was Oscar.
