Judy Garland never won a competative Oscar- she received a special award for The Wizard of Oz.. An Academy gift, not a competative win..

...surely LOTR: The Return of the King is a sequel too? And don't give me any of that "it's the concluding part of the same story" horseshit. It's a damn sequel!!!

I suppose you're right Christopher Plummer would be the oldest person to win an Oscar if he wins this year. Although I'm not exactly sure why you're ignoring Max von Sydow who's nominated this year in the same category and is about 8 months older than Plummer.

Oh and Return of the King is a sequel. I'm not going with Scream 2's definition of a sequel nor should a respected film magazine.
(although arguably Silence of the Lambs is also a sequel)

Most nominations before winning: Randy Newman won with his 16th nomination before winning for Monsters Inc. He's since won again with Toy Story 3, his 20th nomination.

Raymond Massey was nominated for Abe Lincoln in Illinois; and Barry Fitzgerald was nominated for the same role twice, the same in different categories, but the same role.

Surely Return of the King is a SEQUEL to The Two Towers and Fellowship of the Ring. Didn't that win Best Picture also?
