Oscar Movies and Studios by the Numbers: Every Best Picture Nominee Wins an Award in a Historic First

Only three films won multiple awards; Fox Searchlight’s “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” lead

The 87th Academy Awards were a big night for “Birdman,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Whiplash,” which took home four, four and three trophies, respectively. None of the remaining nominated films netted more than one win, though a sizable group of movies are not going home empty handed.

“Birdman” scored Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography. “The Grand Budapest Hotel” matched the Michael Keaton movie in total statuettes, though perhaps not in prestige, collecting awards for costume design, makeup and hairstyling, original score and production design.

“Whiplash” took the first trophy of the night, with J.K. Simmons winning Best Supporting Actor right off the bat. The movie also collected wins for film editing and sound mixing.

After that, 13 other movies split the remaining gold.
