Will ‘A Star Is Born’ be the 4th film to win Best Picture and lead acting Oscars?
Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are aiming to be the eighth onscreen duo to win Best Actor and Best Actress Oscars. But they could join even more rarefied air if “A Star Is Born” also wins Best Picture, as only three films ever have swept those three categories.

All three films that have accomplished this just so happened to be the only three films to claim the Big Five awards as well: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and a screenplay award. The first film to do so was “It Happened One Night” (1934), which picked up statuettes for leads Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, director Frank Capra and screenwriter Robert Riskin.

It’d be 41 years before it occurred again, achieved by “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975), with victories for helmer Milos Forman, stars Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher, and screenwriters Laurence Hauben and Bo Goldman.
