    These campaign instructions for Titanic’s later months of release which showed such a thing in concept brought up this question…

    Well, the consensus so far seems to be no… I’d love to see more votes and explanations on why you guys and gals say so.

    The days of a single movie sweeping most of the awards appears to be over and that’s fine.

    To win 11 Oscars fair and square is an incredibly difficult accomplishment – a film must be viewed by the Academy as the pinnacle of film in ~50% of all categories. Objectively, that’s near impossible even before the contribution of factors pertaining to a more diverse, young and non-male voter group. But in this modern context, it is nary going to happen.

    A narrative for this hypothetical film to win 12 or so Oscars must be firmly created wayyy before Oscars voting takes place, and it mustn’t be derailed by any controversy or retrospective backlash, and in our modern era, that’s often the biggest detriment to a film’s chances to get the baker’s dozen. That’s been the case for several movies this century. You can name them.

    Not in the age of social media where overhyping a popular movie can backfire and those are not as successful as they used to be at the Oscars.

    I’m pretty sure La La Land was tipped to be the biggest Oscar winner of the decade with 9-10 awards and it ended up massively underperforming and taking a huge L because of a backlash. The days of massive sweeps are over

    La la land losing all those awards was like the only time this website was almost in unison and happy for each and every winner lol

    But then they forget all about it once they see Emma Stone win an actress over their queens

    You never know… though it would take a really special film to break the 11 win record.

    Never says Never.

    Lets see to the films that got 11 oscars

    Ben-Hur lost his screenplay nomination (got 2 acting wins)
    Titanic had none acting win
    The Return of the King neither.

    Nowadays is more difficult, but a well received crafted film, with a solid screenplay and some good deserving supporting performance, may break the tie.

    For me it is more curious to know if there will be a film who get 15 nominations. It seems 14 is the roof.

    I think 15 nominations is a more likely achievement than 12 wins. There are several films that could have conceivably broken the record of 14 but didn’t for one reason or another, The Shape of Water being the most recent.

    No, it is completely impossible. Also, I think that a blockbuster will never win again, even if it is so good and undeniable as The Lord of the Rings. The current public, the movie fans and the industry are so snobbish now, so cynical, so pro-art and so against anything commercial. There are so many people hating on La La Land and A Star is Born only because they are about love stories for example. If Black Panther manages to get nominated for Best Picture, the backlash would be brutal. Currently the movies has 7.4 on IMDB, I am sure that if gets nominated for Picture it will be lowed to 6.5 or something.

    It’s extremely difficult to win that many academy awards now, given you actually have to fire at all cylinders and that the academy seems to like splitting the awards more now.
