John Williams is the oldest winner ever

Speaking of even older, John Williams is 92 years old. If he wins Best Score for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, he’ll beat James Ivory’s record for oldest winner ever: Ivory was 89 when he won Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name. Still, if Williams doesn’t win, he can probably be okay with his 54 nominations, making him the most nominated living person in Oscar history.

John Williams is also, fun fact, the person nominated in the most decades, having snagged nominations every decade since the ‘60s.
