    Another year done and dusted. So, what Oscar trivia do we now have to add to our growing lists?

    Last year, this thread (http://www.goldderby.com/forum/topics/view/10729) contained all the Oscars trivia we could summon.

    What trivia do we now have then after last nights ceremony?

    I believe Carol has set a rather unfortunate record, as the film went ZERO for THIRTY nominations across the Oscars, BAFTA, Golden Globes, SAG and Critic’s Choice Awards.

    Just to put the ones we already know about out there:

    Spotlight becomes the first film to win only 2 Oscars in total since The Greatest Show On Earth in 1952.

    Alejandro G Inarritu is the third director to win back to back Best Director Oscars, following John Ford in 1940/41 and Joseph L Mankiewicz in 1949/50. He is the first Mexican director to do so.

    At 87 years old, Ennio Morricone is most likely the oldest Oscar winner in any category. (They don’t keep age records except for Director and Acting categories, but I think George Bernard Shaw might have previously been the oldest winner of all other categories, winning for Pygmalion at 82.)

    0/31 actually!

    Oscars: 0/6 
    BAFTA: 0/9
    Golden Globes: 0/5
    SAG: 0/2
    Critics Choice: 0/9

    At $15m, Ex Machina is the lowest-budgeted film to win Visual Effects since the original Alien in 1979 according to multiple sources (although according to Wikipedia E.T. was cheaper at $10.5m. Can anyone verify that?) I expect Ex Machina is probably the lowest-budgeted winner ever adjusted for inflation. 

    Edit: Ex Machina is also the first non-nominee for Best Picture to beat a Best Picture nominee (or 3) for Visual Effects since Tora! Tora! Tora! beat Patton in 1970.

     Winslet pulls off the unenviable feat of losing with a Bafta+Globe winning performance AND with a Bafta+Sag winning performance.
    The only pre-Sag Awards era actress who lost with a Bafta+Globe winning performance AND a Bafta-winning, Globe/Oscar nominated performance is Jane Fonda. But she won her 2nd lead Oscar in between those, so who cares. 
     

     
    The first one should be considered as an exception based on the fact that she never had to face with the eventual Oscar winner’s winning performance on neither of her victories.
    It’s like putting J.K Simmons in Lead in other award shows and then questioning why he always ended up losing to Redmayne and why Norton always won in Supporting.

    And her Sense and Sensibility loss, along with her other losses eventually helped her to build an overdue narrative and that led to her undeserving win for The Reader. So….

    It’s still factually true. 

    I believe that in the last 20 years, the only director who made 3 acting winning films is Hooper.

    His accomplishment mirrors Hal Ashby’s when he directed 4 Oscar-winning performances across 3 films from 1975-79 (Supporting Actress for Shampoo, Actor and Actress for Coming Home, Supporting Actor for Being There)

    Five women won Oscars for Mad Max Fury Road, more than any other film.

    Spotlight becomes the first film since The Kings Speech to not win the Drama Globe yet go on to win the Best Picture Oscar. It’s the first film since No Country For Old Men to win Best Picture after losing the Drama Globe and BAFTA for Best Film.
