When Actor & Actress are a package deal

"A very cool list though to be honest I wouldn’t have handed these wins to any of the pairs in these years." - Joel

"NETWORK should have easily won The Big Five. It's so weird to see 3 acting winners from a movie whose characters barely even interact with each other, if ever really. " - Craver
