    I think you’ve mixed things up with 7. The Deer Hunter and The Godfather Parts1 &2 won Best Picture. The Conversation lost because it was up against The Godfather Part II.

    Also “John Cazale has good taste” is misleading. Cazale’s girlfriend was MERYL STREEP, who threatened to quit if Cimino fired him from The Deer Hunter. He also started his film career in 1972 and died in 1978 at 42. Politics helped him land the 5 films, and an early death (while having cancer the entire time) stopped him from from being in more films.

      Yeah but he was also a very underrated actor, and politics didn’t help him with Godfather Part II, in which Coppola admitted that the idea for the film came from wanting Fredo/Cazale to have a bigger role.

    Whoever wrote this list needs to get their facts right because they have no idea what they are talking about. The deer hunter won best picture as well as 4 other oscars in 79. The deer hunter and the Godfather 2 weren’t even made the same year. Also, The Conversation did not win best picture because it was the one that lost out to the Godfather 2.

    100 horses died during the filming of the 1929 version of Ben-hur. The one which won the 11 oscars is the 1959 version.

    I think James Dean won an Oscar posthumously. In fact I think James Dean won two Oscars postuhumously.

      James Dean never won any Oscars. He was nominated for “REBEL…”, “EAST OF EDEN”, and “GIANT”, but didn’t win.

    Technically, Finch was born in London, England, though he was raised in Australia from about 9-10 years old..
