This year's nominations also marked the second time (after 1967) that three different films were nominated for the "Big Five" Academy Awards: Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, and Screenplay (one for Adapted Screenplay and two for Original Screenplay). This also marked the first year that the award for Best Makeup was presented. This was the last year until the 2005 Oscars where all five Best Picture nominations were also nominated for Best Director. Chariots of Fire became the last film to win Best Picture and not win for directing until Driving Miss Daisy.
Chariots of Fire won four awards, including Best Picture. Other winners included Raiders of the Lost Ark with five awards, On Golden Pond and Reds with three, Arthur with two, and An American Werewolf in London, Close Harmony, Crac, Genocide, Mephisto, and Violet with one.
