These are the films that have won more than one best picture award, usually by winning Best Picture in its country of origin, then Best Foreign Film in another. For the sake of this list, I limited the list of recognized industry bodies to those from Australia, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, India, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, and the United States. In the interest of including all continents, I have made two exceptions to the industry award rule for the Gramado & Ouagadougou Film Festivals.
I included award categories for feature-length animation, but omitted shorts and documentaries. I also included variations on Best Film and Best Foreign Film, such as BAFTA's Outstanding British Film, the Hong Kong award for Best Asian Film, and the Donatello for Best European Film.
All titles are sorted first by number of honors, then year of release. The leader (with 7) is Pedro Almodovar's "All About My Mother", which won the Goya for Best Film plus the Oscar, BAFTA, Cesar, Lola, Donatello, and Guldbagge awards for Best Foreign Film.

Below are the films that have won over five "industry awards," defined as those awards selected by professionals in the movie business. I limited the pool of film industry bodies to those from the following countries: Australia (AACTA, formerly AFI), China (Golden Horse & Golden Rooster), France (Cesar), Germany (Lola), Great Britain (BAFTA), Italy (Donatello), India (Lotus), Japan (Awards of the Japanese Academy), Mexico (Ariel), Russia (Nika), Sweden (Guldbagge), and the United States (Oscar).
All titles are sorted first by total, then by year of release. The leader (at 23) is "The Last Emperor" with 9 Oscars, 9 Donatellos, 3 BAFTAs, 1 Cesar, and an award from the Japanese Academy.
