The Wolf of Wall Street

Leonardo DiCaprio's chances of winning an Oscar this year have just doubled.

That's because the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has determined that DiCaprio is one of the four producers who will walk away with a statuette should The Wolf of Wall Street win Best Picture.

Not too shabby considering DiCaprio already received a nod last week in the Best Actor category for his performance in the flick.

Meanwhile, Martin Scorsese, who is up for Best Director for helming The Wolf of Wall Street, was also recognized as a producer as well, along with Joey McFarland and Emma Tillinger Koskoff.

The announcement now means DiCaprio has a total of five career Oscar nominations and Scorsese (who won for directing 2006's The Departed) has 12.

But DiCaprio and Sorsese aren't the only 2014 double nominees, which include Steve McQueen (producer and director of 12 Years a Slave), David O. Russell (director and co-writer of American Hustle), Steve Coogan (producer and co-writer of Philomena) and Megan Ellison (producer of American Hustle and Her).

Then, of course, you have triple nominees Alfonso Cuarón (producer, director and co-editor of Gravity) and Spike Jonze (writer, producer and songwriter for Her).

The 86th Annual Academy Awards will be broadcast live from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on March 2.
