Academy Awards Trivia and Records

Recommended Posts

When you look at the Wikipedia page for each Academy Awards, you not only get a complete list of nominees and winners, you also get interesting trivia and records for each ceremony.  The interesting trivia actually starts with the second ceremony 1928-1929:

----Only ceremony where no film won more than one award.  (Two other movies will follow The Broadway Melody in only winning Best Picture.)

----With the exception of the previous year, when there were two directing awards, The Divine Lady is the only movie to win best director without being nominated for best picture.

Yeah, but the first Oscar ceremony pretty much had two Best Pictures: "Wings" (named Outstanding Picture) and "Sunrise" (named Best Unique and Artistic Picture). The latter category was quickly discontinued.
