Movies with Most Academy Award Nominations since 1963

Thousands of movies have earned Academy Award nominations since 1929. For nearly 40 years, "All About Eve" held the record for most nominations with 14 total nods on its way to winning 6 awards. How many other movies can you name received numerous nominations since 1963?
Because there are so many great movies to name, I decided to focus on movie nominations in the past 50 years.

I typed in Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring or a very close equivalent. Omitting "the" shouldn't matter.
Level 37

I would also suggest a bit more leniency in the answers, esp. for LOTR and the Godfather
Level 84

probably a good idea. I got The Godfather Part 2 but I imagine that the only reason it is so low (only 40% guessed it) is because you need to include the word "part."
Level 73

Yeah, I think you should accept "The Godfather Part 2" like I tried, without it having to be "The Godfather Part II".
