Thelma Schoonmaker currently holds the record for most nominations for Best Film Editing at the Academy Awards. However, she has won three of them, for Raging Bull, The Aviator, and The Departed. You may notice those are all Martin Scorsese films, and indeed, Schoonmaker is nominated for Killers of the Flower Moon this year. If she wins, she’ll become the most awarded editor of all time.
