Which "Big Five" Oscar-nominated movie is the best of all time? The "Big Five" Oscars award categories are those for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Screenplay, either Original or Adapted. In the past 90 years, only three films, It Happened One Night (1934), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and The Silence of the Lambs (1991) have won all five Oscars from the forty-three films that secured nominations in all five prestige Academy Award categories. But, maybe sweeping the top five Oscar categories is overrated. Maybe, being nominated across a broader scope of Oscar categories, as well as, being nominated in those same big five prestige Oscar categories is a better indicator of a movie's true greatness.
