Trivial Matters #11

Today I watched “Pygmalion,” nominated for Best Picture at the 11th Academy Awards, and I got to wondering how many remakes of Best Picture nominees/winners went on to be nominees/winners themselves. So here they are:

  • Cleopatra (1934) – Nominated / Cleopatra (1963) – Nominated
  • Les Misérables (1935) – Nominated / Les Misérables (2012) – Nominated
  • Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) – Won / Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) – Nominated
  • Romeo and Juliet (1936) – Nominated / West Side Story (1961) – Won / Romeo and Juliet (1968) – Nominated
  • Pygmalion (1938) – Nominated / My Fair Lady (1964) – Won
  • Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) – Nominated / Heaven Can Wait (1978) – Nominated

Turns out, not too many!
