Did You Know?
For only the second time since 1937 when Supporting Actor/Actress awards were first given, the top 6 awards of Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress and Director went to 6 different movies (the first time this happened was 1953). The six films in 1957 were respectively Around the World in Eighty Days
, The King and I
, Lust for Life
, Written on the Wind
. This will not happen again for 49 years. However, if you extend the list to include writing, and rank Best Screenplay - Original above Best Screenplay - Adaptation (this was the first year the writing awards were so named), then 1957 gives the top 7 awards to 7 different movies (The Red Balloon
) and this certainly is unique. See more
