Movie Trivia: Answer

Yesterday I asked which two movies are the only films to feature three performances that won Academy Awards.


A Streetcar Named Desire (1951):

Vivien Leigh, Best Actress
Kim Hunter, Best Supporting Actress
Karl Malden, Best Supporting Actor
*Interestingly, Marlon Brando's heralded performance as Stanley Kowalski lost out to Humphrey Bogart in The African Queen. The Best Picture Academy Award went to An American in Paris

Network (1976):

Peter Finch, Best Actor (awarded posthumously)
Faye Dunaway, Best Actress
Beatrice Straight, Best Supporting Actress
*William Holden was also nominated for Best Actor. Ned Beatty was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, but lost. Rocky won for Best Picture.
