These are the most Oscar-winning movies ever made


The nominees for the 95th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday morning, with A24’s massive hit “Everything Everywhere All at Once” leading the way with 11 nods.

The Michelle Yeoh film received nominations in top categories including best picture, best director, best actress, best supporting actress and best supporting actor.

Martin McDonagh’s “The Banshees of Inisherin” and German film “All Quiet on the Western Front” both received nine nominations apiece, including for best picture. For a full list of nominees, see CNBC’s coverage here.

Oscar winners are decided on by the nearly 10,000 voting members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. Best picture is determined through a preferential-ballot vote — meaning that voters rank the nominees from No. 1 to No. 10 — while for the rest of the categories voters simply choose their preferred nominee.

The winners will be revealed at the 95th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 12. The awards show will air on ABC, with Jimmy Kimmel returning to host the show for the third time.

While there were no nomination records broken — “Titanic”, “All About Eve” and “La La Land” are all tied for the No. 1 spot with 14 nominations apiece — it’s possible that history will be tied at the 95th Oscars.

If “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has a clean sweep, it will match “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King”, “Titanic” and “Ben-Hur” as the most Oscar-winning movie of all time.

Even if it fails to win all 11 categories, there’s a chance that the film could end up as the second or third winningest movie ever.

These are the 15 most Oscar-winning movies ever made.
