Oscar fun facts

Variety has a list of Oscar nomination fun facts, but they don't answer my query about foreign-language films with multiple nominations.

Well, the record for most nominations for a foreign language film is held by "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," with 10 nominations.

A few other trivia items, some of which are relatively well known, others less so:

Most Oscars won without a Best Picture win: "Cabaret" (8)

Most Oscars won without a Best Picture nomination: "The Bad and the Beautiful" (5)

Most nominations without a Best Picture nomination: "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" (9)

Most nominations without a Best Picture win: "Mary Poppins," "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?", "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (13 each)
