And then there are the Fondas: Three generations, three Oscar wins and 12 total nominations.
Henry Fonda, whose 50-year career included movies like "The Grapes of Wrath" and "12 Angry Men," finally struck Oscar gold in his third nomination, winning for his last movie, 1981's "On Golden Pond."
The acting bug proved genetic, with Henry, Peter and Jane Fonda being the only father-son-daughter Oscar nominees ever. Two-time Oscar winner Jane's nominated co-starring role in "On Golden Pond" made them the only father-daughter duo nominated for the same film.
Then there's Bridget Fonda, who as a 4-year-old made her screen debut in her father's landmark counterculture film "Easy Rider." While the youngest Fonda hasn't achieved the accolades of her famous elders, she had memorable turns in movies like "Point of No Return," "Jackie Brown," "Single White Female" and "Singles."
Presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush
No matter what your political views, you've got to hand it to the two President Bushes for being just the second father-son U.S. president combo ever, after only John Adams and John Quincy Adams.
Like-father-like-son political ambition runs in the family: The elder Bush's father was U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush and the younger Bush's brother, Jeb, served as Florida governor.
Growing up in his father's shadow must have been intimidating for Bush Jr. After all, the elder Bush was once the U.S. Navy's youngest aviator, became an oil millionaire by age 40 and was a congressman, U.N. ambassador, CIA director and vice president before becoming president.
And you thought living up to your dad's accomplishments was a tall order.
If the elder Bush is any indication, his son can expect a long and healthy life. Bush Sr. celebrated both his 75th and 85th birthdays by skydiving. We wouldn't put it past him to do so at age 95 either.
