    I recorded it off TCM a few months ago and just watched the beginning.  It has 7 Oscar winners unbelievably! Five who’d already won at the time of release (Olivia de Haviland, Patty Duke, Lee Grant, Ben Johnson, Jose Ferrer) and two who’d win after the release (Henry Fonda and Michael Caine.)

    Is that the record holder? Odd film to hold the title!

    Nine (2009) comes close to “The Swarm” with 6 Oscar Winners. Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penèlope Cruz, Judi Dench and Sophia Loren.

    I believe we had a similar thread where A Bridge Too Far came up. It has at least 8 Oscar winners, though one is uncredited.

    Michael Caine
    Sean Connery
    Robert Redford
    Gene Hackman
    Anthony Hopkins
    Maximilian Schell
    Laurence Olivier
    Richard Attenborough (uncredited)

    I guess The Player wins it. I don’t know if I’d count Bridge too far. Attenborough and Redford didn’t win for acting. I’d just give Bridge 6.

    This topic has had me interested whenever it comes up. I remember from previous threads The Player comes up. Garry Marshall films have a high number of winners/nominees.

    Valentine’s Day (2010):
    Winners (5): Kathy Bates, Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, Shirley MacLaine, Julia Roberts (Hathaway won after the film was released)
    Nominees (2): Bradley Cooper, Queen Latifah 

    New Year’s Eve (2011):
    Winners (4): Robert De Niro, Halle Berry, Common, Hilary Swank (Common won for Original Song this year)
    Nominees (3): Michelle Pfeiffer, Abigail Breslin, Jon Bon Jovi
