Is Laura Dern the only person to be nominated for an Oscar and also have had both their parents nominated aloso?

(Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern are her parents) Anyone else?

I mean for acting awards. I guess Liza would count if we open it up to all categories.

Liza Minelli's father Vincente won an Oscar or two and her mother Judy was nominated for A Star Is Born, as well as winning one of those kiddie Oscars for The Wizard of Oz. Does that count?

Was Peter Fonda ever nominated? Cause his dad and sister surely won Oscars.

Three generations of Huston actors won Oscars. Anjelica, her Father John and her Grandfather, Walter. That's pretty good.
