Which film has won the most Oscars ever?



(Picture: Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images)With the Oscars bringing Hollywood’s elite together this weekend, there will also be plenty of tension in the room.
The Favourite and Roma are both nominated for 10 gongs each (and both are nominated for Best Picture), so it’ll be all about the win, regardless of whether the losers smile through gritted teeth when the cameras come around.
These nomination totals are impressive, but there have been films with more nominations, and others with more wins.
Interestingly, there are three films with the most Oscar wins – each getting 11. Let’s take a look.
Ben Hur

The Chariot scene from the film (Picture: Silver Screen Collection/Getty Images)This 1959 film was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and took home 11.
This was unprecedented at the time, and took decades for anyone to match the feat.
Among the categories it won were Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Costume Design, and Best Special Effects. The only one it lost out for was Best Adapted Screenplay.
Titanic

Titanic was nominated for 14 categories, tying the record with All About Eve.
Kate Winslet lost out for Best Actress, while Leo DiCaprio sadly wasn’t nominated. They did bag Best Picture, though, as well as plenty of behind-the-scenes awards.
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King

Ian McKellen has been with the franchise since the start (Picture: Pierre Vinet/New Line Cinema/Kobal/REX/Shutterstock)The third movie to hit the big 11 wins is Lord of the Rings: Return of the King.
It marked the first time a fantasy film had ever won Best Picture, as well as the first time a sequel had done so – or won Best Director.
The Peter Jackson flick took home awards for every category it was nominated for.
Last year, La La Land had a record-reaching 14 nominations, and potentially could’ve taken home the job lot to reach the win record.
They took home a respectable six, which for an excruciating few minutes people thought was seven. Who knows whether we’ll get that level of drama this year.
The Oscars will be shown on Sky Cinema this Sunday from 10pm.
