Nominated for six Oscars, “Fanny and Alexander” won four: Best Foreign-Language Picture, Cinematography (Sven Nykvist), Art Direction-set Decoration (Anna Asp), and Costume Design (Marik Vos). 

Bergman was nominated for the directing and original screenwriting Oscars, but lost the former to James L. Brooks (“Terms of Endearment”) and the latter to Horton Foote (“Tender Mercies”).
