Hilary Swank's Best Actress victory earns her membership to a very exclusive Hollywood club - she is one of only six actors and actresses to have won an Oscar every time they have been nominated.

The Actress lifted the prized statuette last night (27FEB05) for her role in Million Dollar Baby, just five years after she took the same prize for Boys DON'T CRY - giving her an enviable 100 per cent record at Hollywood's most prestigious event.

Only five other stars can boast the same record: Helen Hayes, LUISE RAINER, Vivien Leigh, Kevin Spacey and SALLY FIELD - all have two ACADEMY AWARDS to their name.
