That was fun, I don't usually advertise this, but...I actually got all of them.

I got them all too, though I had some trouble spelling Double Indemnity. Some of these results are really surprising.

I would add 'The Turning Point' which got 11 nominations and zero wins, 'The Irishman' which got 10 noms and 0 wins, and likely soon-to be 'The Fabelmans' with 7 nominations and no wins.

The Turning Point just seemed too obscure nowadays, despite all those noms. Not sure why I missed The Irishman, but will add it.

I would also recommend The Turning Point. It holds the record (along with The Color Purple) and I would argue that, if Double Indemnity isn't too obscure, neither is The Turning Point (both great movies by the way).

Nice quiz! Could you accept The Colour Purple (British spelling) for The Color Purple, please? I knew the film but it didn't occur to me to spell colour the American way.

Sure. Though it's an American story from an American novel. Would be weird to have a British spelling.
