off the top of my head i can only think of Slumdag Millionaire, LOTR Return of the King and Braveheart
What are other films
The only other ones are An American In Paris, The Greatest Show On Earth, Around the World In 80 Days, and Gigi. All of these are from the 50’s. The next film to win without an acting nom after Gigi was Braveheart 37 years later.
All Quiet On the Western Front
The Last Emperor
The Last Emperor did in 1987 and so did Grand Hotel in 1932
All Quiet on the Western Front
“Grand Hotel” is notable to win Best Picture not only without any acting nods, but with no additional nominations at all – no Directing, no Screenplay, not even one lousy technical nod. I doubt it would be possible nowadays. Joan Crawford was splendid.
I agree in that it could never happen today.. Not the acting nods, that’s not impossible, no support ‘below the line’ whatsoever? I don’t think it could happen today. I can think of a few other nods I would have given Grand Hotel am surprised that Best Picture was its only nomination..
