A couple things to point out:

Akim Tamiroff was born in 1899 in what was once the Russian Empire. It is unconfirmed as to which city he was born in. According to Wikipedia, he was either born in what is now Tbilisi (capital of Georgia) or Baku (capital of Azerbaijan). Because of this, I decided to have both countries automatically filled in, having one count each for the same person.

A few actors were born in overseas territories that belong to other countries. This includes Jocelyn LaGarde, born in Tahiti (which is an overseas collectivity of France), and four people who were born in Puerto Rico, which belongs to the United States. Those four actors are Benicio del Toro, Jose Ferrer, Rita Moreno, and Joaquin Phoenix.

For anyone wondering how I made this, I manually checked the Wikipedia pages of every Oscar nominee to see where they were born, and then I wrote down all the data in a Word document. If anyone wants to check it out, I turned it into a Google Doc and made it available to the public. The link to the Google Doc is here. Let me know if there are any viewing issues and hopefully I'll be able to fix them.
