Avengers: Endgame Has Set an Unwanted Oscars Record
Avengers: Endgame set an unprecedented and surely unwanted Academy Awards record last weekend. The epic superhero adventure is currently the highest grossing movie of all time after knocking out James Cameron's Avatar. Going into Sunday's awards ceremony, the movie was up for one honor, which was for Best Visual Effects. However, Kevin Feige and crew ended up losing out to Sam Mendes' 1917, which meant that Endgame went home empty-handed. It's not the first Marvel Cinematic Universe installment to go without any awards and it certainly will not be the last.

This leads us to the unwanted Oscars record that Avengers: Endgame now has. Since the first Oscars ceremony was held in 1929, ten movies have held the highest-grossing record. Of these ten highest-grossing movies, only one has gone home without an award. Endgame is the only movie to hold the highest grossing position in Academy Awards history and not go home with an award.
