The sweariest movie in Academy history, who's up for an EGOT, and more 2014 Oscars talking points

Want to win friends and influence people using your intimate knowledge of this year’s Oscar nominees — and how they stack up against Academy history? Never fear: EW’s got you covered. (Caution: Nerd alert!)

- It’s unclear how many times the F-word is used in The Wolf of Wall Street. Vulture says it’s 569; Slate says it’s 544; some guy at some blog says it’s 506. In any case, it’s one of the most profanity-laced films in history and certainly the swearingest movie ever to be nominated for Best Picture. Wolf director Martin Scorsese’s own Goodfellas, with a mere 300 documented “f—“s, is the previous record holder.

No movie has ever won all four acting awards, though¬†A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) and¬†Network (1976) got three wins apiece. Also worth noting: While quadfectas generally snag at least one acting award, only two (1942’s Mrs. Miniver and 1953’s From Here to Eternity) have ever managed a Best Picture win.
