The Most Nominations ... Without Winning Alex North holds the record for most Best Score nominations without winning. What 1969 biblical drama featured one of his nominated scores?
Winners in Both Leading and Supporting Roles Six actors and five actresses have won Oscars in both the leading and supporting categories. Denzel Washington, named Best Actor for Training Day (2001), also won a Supporting Actor award for what 1989 historical drama starring Matthew Broderick?
Alien Invasions While the Best Director Oscar has only gone to English-language films, several times directors have been nominated for making films in a different language. Constantin Costa-Gavras was nominated as Best Director of 1969 for which French-language political thriller?
By the way, I have a quibble with the way TCM has worded the first question—while the film has religious overtones, I don't believe it can be called a "biblical" drama, which implies that the story is adapted from the Bible or is otherwise a period costume piece. It's neither.
And remember, you can check out TCM's entire "31 Days of Oscar" schedule here.
