    I was looking at The French Dispatch’s ensemble cast earlier and noticed how many Oscar winning actors we have.

    Benicio del Toro
    Adrien Brody
    Tilda Swinton
    Frances McDormand
    Chirstoph Waltz
    Anjelica Huston

    That’s 6. I’m wondering if this is the most for a feature film?

    Note: I’m referring to the count at the time of filming/release. Of course, I’m aware of films with a more robust cast in retrospect, but some of the actors only won/broke out later which kinda takes away from the approach I’m taking here.

    There was already a thread for this. It needs updating. For example, the Ocean films can now add Pitt and Affleck as winners.

    If people count Attenborough or Ben Affleck for some films, then Fisher Stevens’ Documentary win should count for French Dispatch.

    Nope, Robert Altman’s The Player (1992) had Oscar winners in its ensemble in the double digits.

    Avengers Endgame’s cast has quite a few, mostly just because if the sheer volume of actors in the film.

    Brie Larson (Captain Marvel): won in 2016 for Room

    Gwenyth Paltrow (Pepper Potts): won in 1999 for Shakespeare in Love

    William Hurt (Thunderbolt Ross): won in 1986 for Kiss of the Spider Woman

    Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One): won in 2008 for Michael Clayton

    Marisa Tomei (Aunt May): won in 1993 for My Cousin Vinny

    Michael Douglas (Hank Pym): won in 1988 for Wall Street and in 1976 for One Flew Over the Cuccos Nest

    Robert Redford (Alexander Pierce): won in 1981 for Ordinary People

    Natalie Portman (Jane Foster): won in 2011 for Black Swan

    Additionally, Taika Waititi is also an Academy award winner now for Jojo Rabbit. He played Korg in Avengers Endgame.

    Nine at the time of its release, 13 now (Julia Roberts, James Coburn, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon all won theirs post-92)
