In 1985, the year nominee Keira Knightley was born, fellow nominee Judi Dench appeared in "A Room with a View"; David Strathairn appeared on a "Miami Vice" episode; Frances McDormand appeared on several episodes of "Hill Street Blues"; and William Hurt starred in "Kiss of the Spider Woman," for which he would go on to win the best-actor award.

"Brokeback Mountain" has the most nominations this year, with eight, but it pales in comparison with the record-holders: "All About Eve" and "Titanic," both with 14. The most Oscars were won by "Ben-Hur," "Titanic" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," each with 11.
