ⓘ 32nd Academy Awards

The 32nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, was held on April 4, 1960, and took place at the RKO Pantages Theatre to honor the best films of 1959.

The epic drama Ben-Hur won 11 Oscars, breaking the record of nine set the year before by Gigi. Ben-Hur remained the most honored motion picture in Academy Award history until Titanic equaled the feat in 1997, followed by The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in 2003.

Ben-Hur was the third film to win both Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, a feat not repeated until Mystic River in 2004. Director William Wyler became the third and most recent person to win more than two Best Director awards following Frank Capra and John Ford, as well as the only person to direct three Best Picture winners.
