Warren Beatty and the Oscar numbers — Having the most nominations could be a curse

Posted on

Bugsy may have the most Oscar nominations with 10, but history does not favor Warren Beatty in the battle for Best Picture. In most years, the winner for Best Picture is the movie that leads or ties for the most nominations. But the last two times a Beatty film garnered the most nominations — 1978’s Heaven Can Wait and 1981’s Reds — another movie won. Above, Beatty and Natalie Wood attend the 1962 awards,when she was nominated for her role opposite him in Splendor in the Grass.
