Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), which combined live action and animation, also had six nominations.

For only the second time since 1951, when individual producers rather than companies were first cited in the Best Picture nominations, a producer has received two Best Picture nominations in the same year. Scott Rudin has been nominated for The Social Network and True Grit. In 1974, Francis Ford Coppola and Fred Roos received Best Picture nominations for both The Conversation and the eventual winner, The Godfather Part II.

With their nominations for Best Picture, Directing and Writing for True Grit, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen join Warren Beatty, Francis Ford Coppola, Peter Jackson and Oliver Stone in having been nominated in those three categories for two different films. Only Stanley Kubrick has been nominated in those categories for three different films (Dr. Strangelove in 1964, A Clockwork Orange in 1971, Barry Lyndon in 1975). The Coens were previously nominated for No Country for Old Men (2007).
