    Interesting read. Inspires me to rewatch many of them. I wonder how many times an actor has been in a Best Picture winner?

    Mad Mad was not a Best Picture nominee.

    Ward Bond holds the record for most credited Best Picture nominee appearances with 13

    It appears Bess Flowers has appeared in the most Best Picture nominees.

    Source: IMDB

    “She appeared in five Best Picture Academy Award winners: It Happened One Night (1934), You Can’t Take It with You (1938), All About Eve (1950), The Greatest Show on Earth (1952) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1956). In addition to those five films, she also appeared in eighteen others which were nominated for Best Picture: Anthony Adverse (1936), Dodsworth (1936), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), The Awful Truth (1937), In Old Chicago (1937), One Hundred Men and a Girl (1937), Love Affair (1939), Ninotchka (1939), Heaven Can Wait (1943), Watch on the Rhine (1943), Double Indemnity (1944), Mildred Pierce (1945), The Razor’s Edge (1946), Father of the Bride (1950), A Place in the Sun (1951), The Robe (1953), Witness for the Prosecution (1957) and Judgment at Nuremberg (1961).”

    Except that she’s uncredited in all of them, essentially a studio bit player.

    Tracy actually holds the record for most cast appearances in Best Picture nominees (9) without any of them ever winning.  He’s tied with Elizabeth Taylor, his FotB co-star, for that distinction.  Her others:
    Quo Vadis*, A Place in the Sun, Ivanhoe, Giant, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Cleopatra, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Anne of the Thousand Days*

    Still, an appearance is an appearance, credited or not.
