Star Wars: A New Hope won six Oscars at the 50th Academy Awards on this day in 1978.
It's fair to say that the sci-fi box office hit took the Academy by storm with the film being nominated for a whopping 10 Oscars.
The six categories were:
- Best Visual Effects
- Best Original Score
- Best Costume Design
- Best Film Editing
- Best Production Design
- Best Sound Mixing
Mark Hamill and Anthony Daniels as C-3PO presented Benjamin Burtt Jr. with the Special Achievement Award for Best Sound Editing in Star Wars.
The blockbuster movie was also nominated in four other categories: Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay - but didn't win any awards in these categories.
Will we ever see a repeat of this feat by a Star Wars film again? Let us know in the comments below.
