Every year we have films that dominate some categories, this year we had Inside Out taking like 99% of the Best Animated Feature awards, Amy in Best Documentary Film, and Son of Saul in Best Foreign Film.
What is the film that has won the most awards in general? By all the possible award shows and critics?
Without doing any research my first guess would be The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.
Probably something from the last few years because it is like every year there are more and more awards.
Brie Larson won 56 awards for Room!!! It must be like junk mail by now. Her house must have just been filled with box after box of trophies. This must drive the UPS people crazy.
85% of the critics awards doesn’t give trophies, right?
I believe The Social Network is the winner, it really got all the CC awards + GG + BAFTA.
12 Years a Slave – 234 awards
Gravity – 214 awards
Mad Max: Fury Road – 186 awards
LOTR The Return of the King – 181 awards
Birdman – 180 awards
Boyhood – 168 awards
The Social Network – 161 awards
I did not go before this century though, but I think this is it.
