The Fellowship of the Ring won four Oscars and was nominated for nine others. The Two Towers won two Oscars and was nominated for four others. However, neither film won Best Picture. So, when it came time to vote for the 2004 Oscars, The Return of the King — and the trilogy as a whole — was given its flowers. The final entry culminates with the ultimate battle — good vs. evil, Aragorn vs. Sauron’s army, Frodo vs. the One Ring and Gollum.
The fantasy epic was nominated for 11 Oscars…and won all 11. In addition to winning Best Picture, Peter Jackson took home Best Director, and the film claimed all of the major awards for music, editing, visual effects, costume design, and makeup. Finally, the franchise was justly recognized for its brilliance.
