6. Take five
Only three films have ever taken home all five of the most coveted Oscars: best picture, actor, actress, director, and writing. Those films are: “It Happened One Night” (1935), “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” (1976), and “The Silence Of The Lambs” (1992).
7. Bad luck streak
Sound re-recording mixer Kevin O’Connell was nominated for an Oscar 20 times without winning once, setting the record for most nominations without a win. This changed in 2017, when he won the award for best achievement in sound mixing for his work on “Hacksaw Ridge.”
8. All in the family
Liza Minnelli, who won best actress for her work in “Cabaret” (1972), is the only Oscar winner whose parents — Judy Garland and director Vincente Minnelli — also won Oscars.
9. Where dreams come true
Walt Disney is the most honored person in academy history. Disney was nominated 59 nominations and won 26.
10. Something for the kids
Until it was discontinued in 1962, the academy would periodically award the pint-sized Academy Juvenile Award for most outstanding child talent. The first winner of this award was Shirley Temple in 1935. Other winners included Judy Garland and Hayley Mills.
