To compare, 1973 best-picture winner “The Godfather,” which always ranks high among critics’ lists of best movies ever made, won only three Oscars that year. While the film was nominated in 11 categories, the only other winners were Marlon Brando for acting, as well as Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo for adapted screenplay.
