Note from Byter Gino:

Enjoyed your byte on "Wings"  Did it not win 2 academy awards 2 years in a row or is that wrong?

From the Internet Movie Database:

The only movie to ever win an Academy Award for Best Production. In the Oscars' first year of existence, two "Best Picture"-type awards were given: This film was awarded Best Production and Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans (1927) was awarded Best Artistic Quality of Production. Both awards were discontinued the following year and replaced by the modern Best Picture Oscar; Best Production is usually thought of as that award's equivalent.

The only movie to win an Academy Award for Engineering Effects.
