    As of now, only 3 films in history have managed to win all 5 major Oscars (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay), which were 1934’s It Happened One Night, 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs. In fact, after having done some research not too long ago, I was able to find 4 other films that came close to achieving that record, but missed out by losing only 1 of their top 5 nominations.

    1939’s Gone with the Wind – Clark Gable lost Best Actor to Robert Donat (Goodbye, Mr. Chips)
    1942’s Mrs. Miniver – Walter Pidgeon lost Best Actor to James Cagney (Yankee Doodle Dandy)
    1977’s Annie Hall – Woody Allen lost Best Actor to Richard Dreyfuss (The Goodbye Girl)
    1999’s American Beauty – Annette Bening lost Best Actress to Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry)

    Out of curiosity, what films do you personally think should’ve won the top 5 awards at the Oscars? It doesn’t have to be any of the 4 I just mentioned. It can be any film that was at least nominated for each of the top 5 awards.

    You can see the films eligible for the thread in here

    I have a lot of blindspots to confirm any of this but I would have been more than fine with these films winning the big five:

    Gone With The Wind
    Sunset Boulevard
    Chinatown
    Network
    Atlantic City
    The Silence of The Lambs
    Million Dollar Baby

    Network and The Lion In Winter deserved the big 5 no matter what

    Chinatown and Sunset Boulevard deserved it on merit alone but the competition was too fierce

     

    FYC :

    Best Actress - Viola Davis
    Best Actor - Delroy Lindo, Chadwick Boseman
    Best Supp Actor - Daniel Kaluuya, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II
