Trivia buffs alert: The 2024 Oscar nominations

Songwriter Diane Warren sits at a piano for a portrait.

—For his participation on “Maestro,” Steven Spielberg amassed his 13th best picture nomination, a record for an individual producer.

—Thanks to the epic drama “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Martin Scorsese becomes the most-nominated living film director of all time, with an amazing 10 nods. He surpasses old pal Spielberg, who now ranks second in the category, with nine nominations. Still, Spielberg beats Scorsese in actual directing wins, two (“Schindler’s List,” “Saving Private Ryan”) to one (“The Departed”).

—“Flower Moon” also brought a new best to supporting acting contender Robert De Niro, who now boasts a record 12 credited roles in a best picture nominee. His co-star in the film, Leonardo DiCaprio, now ranks second on that count, with 11 such appearances.

Songwriter Diane Warren beat her own record this year earning her 15th original song nomination. She has yet to win a competitive Oscar.
