Our newest exhibition, Glamour on Board: Fashion from Titanic the Movie, features costumes from the iconic production, which holds the record for the most Academy Award® nominations and the record for the most Oscars® won by a single film.
The 1997 movie was nominated for 14 Academy Awards, tying All About Eve (1950) for the most Oscar nominations. Additionally, it won 11 of those awards, tying Ben Hur (1959)—and later matched by The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)—for having won the most Oscars.
Titanic’s Academy Awards include:
- Best Picture
- Best Director
- Best Art Direction
- Best Cinematography
- Best Costume Design
- Best Film Editing
- Best Original Dramatic Score
- Best Original Song
- Best Sound
- Best Sound Effects Editing
- Best Visual Effects
Needless to say, the award we’re most excited about is “Best Costume Design”—which means that each and every costume on display in our exhibition is a true Academy Award-winner!
Here’s a sneak peek at the detailing on a few of those fabulous pieces:
1. Rose DeWitt Bukater’s yellow Breakfast Dress will be on display in the Oak Sitting Room.
2. Rose’s red shoes, along with the famed Jump Dress, will be on display in the Library.
3. Rose’s iconic Boarding Hat from the start of the film will be on display near the Winter Garden.
Join us February 9–May 13 to discover the first large-scale exhibition of fashions from Titanic on display in the grand rooms of Biltmore House.
