If my calculations are correct, ever since the first Oscar ceremony, only 23 bissextiles have passed. Rarity providing value, I thought it would be interesting to associate this 'bissextile' factor to the usual Oscar nominations records.

Indeed, if it's a remarkable achievement for actors to get more than 5 or 10 nominations in their career, how about getting these nods during these 'special' years?

So far, only 12 actors and actresses managed to get nominated for acting during a bissextile year at least 3 times (the year being the ceremony's year, not the film's release)

Which member of the "Bissextile Elite Club" is your favorite?

I wasn't sure what bissextile meant. Maybe you could also include the phrase leap year.

Fun fact: the 1940 Academy Awards took place on February 29.

'Two small suggested edits:

If my calculations are correct, ever since the first Oscar ceremony, only 23 leap years have passed. Rarity providing value, I thought it would be interesting to associate this 'leap' factor to the usual Oscar nomination records.

And the sentence "So far, only 12...  film's release)" is missing a period at the end after the second parenthesis.
