Oscar Records: Blanchett, Cate–Female Actor in Largest (9) Number of Best Picture Nominees

Spielberg, Cate Blanchett, Kenneth Branagh, Riz Ahmed and Hans Zimmer are among the big names making history or set to break records at the 95th Annual Academy Awards.


The 94th Academy Awards will be broadcast on Sunday, March 27, in a live telecast starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on ABC.

A host has not yet been named for the ceremony.

Some believed that Cate Blanchett, already a two-time Oscar winner, was snubbed by the Acting Branch, which failed to nominate her for a supporting turn in Nightmare Alley (which earned a Best Picture nod).

However, Blanchett has achieved another record.
