There were several silent films superior to WINGS (**1/2) that may have qualified that year, especially THE CROWD, or THE GENERAL

But L.B. Mayer detested THE CROWD, even being from MGM

 

BROADWAY MELODY must be the worst yet???

 

"The Crowd" was up for the other best movie category, Unique and Artistic, the category that was won by "Sunrise".

 

There were three films nominated for that award, the third being a documentary called "Chang" made by the folks who made "King Kong" a few years later.  It was a very staged documentary, but if you can get past that it's quite good.  Found it on DVD a few years ago, surely one of the most obscure Oscar nominees ever.

-----Interestingly, two films not nominated for best picture will get more nominations than the winner.  This would also happen for the awards for 1952 and 2006.

 

For 1952, The Bad and the Beautiful got 6 Oscar nods and 5 wins.  Best Actor nominee Kirk Douglas lost to Gary Cooper.  Biggest disappointment:  David Raksin was not nominated for Scoring of a Dramatic Picture.  The Best Pic Oscar winner The Greatest Show on Earth received 5 noms.

For 2006, the Best Pic Oscar winner was The Departed with 5 nods and 4 wins.  Supporting Actor Mark Wahlberg lost to Alan Arkin.  Biggest disappointment:  Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for Blood Diamond rather than The Departed.

Although The General might not have been nominated anyway (it didn't enjoy the critical reputation at the time that it holds today), the film would have been ineligible in any case: it premiered in the US on Feb. 5, 1927.  Only films released between August 1, 1927 and July 31, 1928 were eligible for the first Academy Awards ceremony.

The record of 11 wins is shared by a trio of beloved epics: “Ben-Hur” (1959), “Titanic” (1997) and “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2003), all of which won Best Picture. The only other film to notch double digits wins is the musical classic “West Side Story” (1961) with 10.
