The acting award was given in 1929 and the other two in 1930, which accords the movie the distinction of being one of only two films to ever receive an Oscar nomination in two different years that was not a foreign language film. The other was The Quiet One nominated in 1948 for Documentary Feature and 1949 for Story and Screenplay.
