This page shows you the list charts. By default, the movies are ordered by how many times they have been marked as a favorite. However, you can also sort by other information, such as the total number of times it has been marked as a dislike.
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.
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.

The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is the leading public film festival in the world, bringing the power of film to life each September.
Starting out in 1976 as a collection of films from other festivals - a "festival of festivals" - the Toronto International Film Festival has become one of the most beloved cinematic events in the world, universally regarded as an ideal platform for filmmakers to launch their careers and to premiere their new work. It has been described as "the most important film festival in the world - the largest, the most influential, the most inclusive." *
The major prize, the People's Choice Award, is given to a feature-length film with the highest ratings as voted by the TIFF-going populace.

The Pula Film Festival (Croatian: Festival igranog filma u Puli) is the oldest Croatian film festival which is held annually in a Roman amphitheater known as the Pula arena since 1954. The festival is usually held in the summer, in July or August.
Apart from film screenings open to the public, the annual Croatian film industry awards are also traditionally presented at the festival. The awards presented at the festival (called Golden Arenas) are the main national film awards in the country and they serve as the Croatian equivalent of the American Academy Awards, British BAFTA Awards, Spain's Goya Awards, France's César Award, etc.
The festival was originally started in 1954 and within a few years it became the centerpiece event of the Yugoslav film industry, with first national awards being presented in 1957. This lasted until 1991, when the festival was cancelled due to the breakup of Yugoslavia, only to resume in 1992 as the Croatian film awards festival. It has been held every year since (with the exception of the 1994 edition which was also cancelled). [Wikipedia]

Why the SAG Awards are Unique
Lauded by critics for its style, simplicity and genuine warmth, the Screen Actors Guild Awards®, which made its debut in 1995, has become one of the industry’s most prized honors. The only televised awards shows to exclusively honor performers, it presents thirteen awards for acting in film and television in a fast moving two hour show which airs live on TNT and TBS. The awards focus on both individual performances as well as on the work of the entire ensemble of a drama series and comedy series, and the cast of a motion picture. These honors are fundamental to the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild Awards because they recognize what all actors know – that acting is a collaborative art.
