8 of 11: The last installment of the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, 'The Return of the King,' took home 'Best Picture' in 2004. This fantasy-adventure film, directed by Peter Jackson, won all 11 Academy Awards for which it was nominated, which ties it with only 'Titanic' and 'Ben-Hur' for most Academy Awards ever won. It also marked the first time a fantasy movie has won 'Best Picture' and was the third highest-grossing film of all time worldwide, behind 'Avatar' and 'Titanic.' (AP Photo)
