The most Oscar-winning movies ever made

William Wyler’s 1959 epic rendition of “Ben-Hur” was nominated for twelve awards and picked up eleven, missing out on Best Adapted Screenplay but sweeping the board with Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, as well as a raft of technical gongs.

That record stood alone for nearly 40 years until James Cameron got his hands on the deck of the “Titanic”, put together an all-star supporting cast and placed his faith in two actors who were not considered huge stars at the time but went on to helm one of the most successful movies of all time - and the highest-grossing until Cameron surpassed his own Midas touch with “Avatar”.

In total, “Titanic” landed 14 Academy Award nominations, matching the record set by “All About Eve” in 1950. Cameron himself won Best Picture (with Jon Landau) and Best Director with the rest of the movie’s awards coming in technical and musical categories.

“The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” was nominated for eleven awards in 2003, a culmination of the work of Peter Jackson and a star-studded ensemble cast who had captivated audiences for three years with a sweeping imagining of JRR Tolkien’s masterpiece.

Jackson won Best Director and Best Picture (with Barrie M Osborne and Fran Walsh), while adapted screenplay was a bit of a shoo-in. “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” also made history with a clean sweep, becoming (and remaining) the only movie to win every category it was nominated in: Best Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Art Direction, Makeup, Costume Design, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects.

Most nominations: 14 - “All About Eve” (1950), “Titanic” (1997), “La La Land” (2016)

Most nominations for a foreign-language film: 10 - “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” (2000), “Roma” (2018)
